I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

from the publisher:
To help novice football fans discover what all the cheering s about, veteran sportscaster Mark Oristano brings readers a basic understanding of one of America's most beloved sports. From "special teams" to "running backs" and "tight ends," Oristano highlights key football terms and puts them into perspective using realistic scenarios to illustrate the impact various positions, penalities and plays have on the game. Filled with diagrams of key plays, game-winning strategies and talking points to help new fans seem knowledgeable, this book informs and instructs rookie spectators as they root their favorite team onto victory.

My two oldest boys are playing football (7th and 5th graders) and a bunch of mom's were recently joking that we need to see if there's a football basics book out there to learn positions, plays, special teams and penalty calls. I'd LOVE this.
Thanks for the giveaway.

I read because it is a form of escape for me. It is my "me" time. The time I pamper myself and escape into other worlds or time periods.
