Hello December 2019 – Fictionophile updates

Wow! 2019 is almost over and there are SO MANY more books I wanted to get read this year.
December is always such a busy month that I hope I can squeeze a few more reads in.

I’m pleased to report that I have completed my 2019 Goodreads Reading Challenge

and my ‘NetGalley November‘ efforts paid off.  I read nine NetGalley titles in November bringing my NetGalley feedback ratio up three points!

By far, my most popular post this month was a discussion post on star ratings.
This post garnered 441 views – almost double any of my book review posts.

I’m very happy to report that Fictionophile now has 3,694 followers and I’m very grateful to each and every one of them.  If I get to 4,000 followers I plan to host a draw for an Amazon gift card.

On a personal note, today I finished writing all my Christmas letters for overseas. I have 35 first cousins in England, though I’m only really in touch with eight of them on a regular basis.

And, my dear little grandson went to visit Santa for the very first time.

He is the light of my life…

Hope you all have a joyous and productive month of December.

Thanks so much for your support over the past year.
