In terms of book arrivals at CWBAHQ, this has been a very atypical winter. The first installment of December Booknotes is actually composed entirely of November arrivals and only a single title has made its way into the mailbox so far this month. With few books hitting their original publishing dates, it is impossible to keep to even a loose reading schedule, but I try anyway. I can't recall another two month period like Dec '13 - Jan '14 on my calendar of prospects, with no titles on the request list until the end of January and the absence of unsolicited packages (which usually far outnumber the rest) over a three week period. Not complaining, though; a break might be nice.
