Weekly Journal November 21-28

I am afraid this week hasn’t been optimal for blogging with much work to do and the annual company outing on Friday to Saturday. I read two great books though and managed a few reviews anyway. Edit: I finished Money Shot third book in the Netherworld trilogy in record time.

I am looking forward to next weeks monthly posts and the Christmas goodies to come. I believe there will be some interesting mid season finales too next week.

Notable posts this week

TV Reviews: Lost Girl and Stargate Universe.
