Welcome to my new feature Chuckles Weekend Roundup where I will be looking at what books I've received, anything interesting I've done or bought or watched and other random stuff. I'll be taking a look back at what happened in my blogging world too, sort of like The Sunday Post that some of you do!
Please note that I'll be visiting your STS/SP as normal, but I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow DISQUS to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I am the only one who does that on my social media! I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. Sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me because I deleted my account with them but I will persevere as it only happens the odd time!
It's the last day of the year already and I don't know where time has gone. As I write this Storm Dylan is hitting us with rain and high winds, the snow is gone, and I've just finished the last pile of ironing. The plan for the rest of the day is to finish this blog post, catch up on comments and blog visits, and put my feet up for the rest of the day. I have a night of reading and chocolate munching planned with a few films I like on in the background. My dad will be watching his own films downstairs all night. A quiet night at the Book Cave! From tomorrow I'll be posting my challenges for the year ahead and I will be online. I don't like New Year and I don't celebrate it. Maybe we'll get a break from the darn fireworks tonight with the weather being a bit on the grim side! Oh and the binmen didn't show up yesterday to empty them so last night's bad weather has overturned the bins and there are cans and bottles over everyone in the street's gardens. It's a pure mess!!!
Chuckles Blogging World
This week was about doing a review of my reading for the year and planning my challenge posts for next year ready to put up from tomorrow. Along with the regular blogging stuff, it turned into a pretty busy week! This is my last post of the year and links to all the posts are included as usual.

This week I went sampling and around the blogs to pick out some good posts for you. Cover Love showcased Nicole Conway, Top Ten Tuesday was about 2018 books I'm looking forward to and Can't Wait Wednesday was about zombies.

I'm not sure if there will be a sample post or around the blogs as it depends on the time I have. I will be doing my regular posts though.
