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.

Christy Awards Challenge

Do you know what the Christy Awards are? I didn't either but they started to follow me on Twitter so I checked it out. All the rules and to sign up for the challenge can be found here.

Dates: Nov 1, 2009 to Dec 31, 2010

The levels run from "never read Christian Fiction" (read one from the list) to Hardcore: 7th Tier - Read all of the winners in every category to the perpetual challenge - "Read all of the books nominated and awarded the Christy challenge throughout the course of your lifetime".

One of my reading goals next year is to read 12 Christian fiction books and I've already got a pile for that so I'll be adding the Christy Awards but changing the challenge a bit. I'll read one book from each category - if the library has it. The Challenge site starts listing in 2000 so that's when I'll start my list also.
