Rewind & Review #125

~Had my last week of work before the holidays. I've been home, relaxing, since last weekend, and I'll head back to the city in a couple days.
~Once I was home, my family and I went to see Mary Poppins Returns.
~I edited my spreadsheet for the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge a little, and removed a bunch of books because it wasn't clear if Rory had read them or not. While this cut how many I'll have to read, I unfortunately had to remove a bunch I'd already read. So now the challenge is down to 146 books, which I've read 26 of; that equals 18%. I've definitely gotta get a move on with this challenge.
~I did my annual bookshelf cull, where I pull the books I don't want anymore and/or probably won't ever reread. I think my stack is a bit smaller this year than in the past, which might be a good thing? Maybe I'm getting better at buying books I truly want.
