How The Holidays Killed My Reading

You see this book? It's really very good; I'm enjoying it a lot. But I started it over a week ago and I'm still not even half way finished with it.

Part of it is the time I've spent in stores that I might otherwise have spent reading. Or the time I've spent baking Christmas goodies. But, let's be honest, my biggest time suck the past couple of weeks has been Christmas shows...or, for that matter, any show which features Christmas in prominent scenes. I have never spent so much time in front of the television watching Christmas shows. For a girl who was feeling so grinchy a couple of weeks ago, these shows have helped me do an about face. I'm feeling very festive!

Just what have I watched?

* "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" - the original, only the original!
* "Auntie Mame"
* "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol"
* "White Christmas"
* "Holiday Inn"
* All three versions of "Miracle on 34th Street"
* "Love Actually"
* "The Santa Claus"
* "The Nativity Story"
* "Elf"
* "It's A Wonderful Life"
* "Bridget Jones' Diary"
* "A Christmas Carol" with George C. Scott

Have you been addicted to the shows this season? What have I missed (besides "Rudolph" which I will make sure gets watched yet this week!)? Starting Friday, it's back to the books, though!
