Up until Christmas I had been plodding through book 4 of Steven King's Dark Tower series. It's over 800 pages, not action-packed, and took a lot of will power to get through (guess I didn't enjoy it much).
On the vision side, Santa brought us a DVD of the BBC TV series 'The Office'. I'd never seen any of this before, but I'd heard of it and it has received tons of acclaim. We watched the entire 6-episode series in one sitting, and loved it to bits.
