It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Tuesday Thingers

...on Thursday
Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Wendi at Wendi's Book Corner.

The meme was originally created as a way to network with other bloggers and to learn about Library Thing! I may be an long-time member (well, 2006) of LT but for much of that time I had forgotten about it. Come join us at LT and in the meme - it's been fun reading everyone's answers.

This week, I'd like to take a quick peek into the Groups section. For anyone who hasn't visited the groups section, it is a place that is very much like a normal forum, or a place you can post comments and reply to what others have posted. Some groups are topic oriented, and others are more relaxed. LT has sections for Standing Groups (I think this means that they were created by LT and will always be available), Groups with the Most Members, Most Active Talk, Member Projects, etc.

The great thing about these groups?? If you want to talk about a book or author, there is probably a group or thread available for you to read, join, or comment in. There are even some great Book Challenges (75 Books Challenge for 2009)!! You can read about a group and then read the "threads" (topics/conversations), join the group, watch the group, or recommend it to a friend.

When you join or watch a group, you can have it show up on your home page on LT if you haven't taken it off your settings (mine shows up under my Connection News).

Questions: Have you recently browsed any of the groups? Are you actively participating in any groups? Do you have any favorites?
Answers: I haven't been back to LT except for EarlyReviewer since the last time I did this. I have browsed the groups, in fact, I belong to the 999 Challenge. Other than signing up, I haven't been participating. Dang, looks like I need to add LT to my weekly schedule just so I can answer the questions! ;-)
