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.

Every Month a Holiday 2010

I'm going to try this one again since I'm starting in January.




Check out the blog for challenge details but basically, read a book for every month that relates to a holiday or birthday. Birthdays...a cross section of birthdays, author, artists, famous people. Feel free to add birthdays that you know

Twelve books necessary but don't have to be read in order. um..do they need to be read the the month they're being assigned? Don't think so.
