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 Tangents

This wonderful meme is hosted at The 3R's Blog, join us!

I was cleaning up my challenges Friday night and working on my book list when I decided to count up all the books required.


Thank heavens for overlaps because I need to read 678 books during 2010 in order to complete all my challenges. This does NOT include reading any for perpetual challenges or the challenges I joined today.

10*10*10, 100+, 52 Books in 52 Weeks and A-Z can all overlap so, whew, I'm down to 500 right off the bat. Too bad I signed up for four more challenges on Saturday and one requires 42 science fiction titles. Yea, movies and short stories count!

Now I'm up to 742 and there are still five challenges that I'm thinking about.

I feel a little overwhelmed. I promised myself I wouldn't join so many challenges but they all look so good. It's like opening a favorite box of chocolates and saying "look all you want but you can only have one". It just doesn't work!

My blog is one now so I posted a contest yesterday.

I have second copies of nine review books to give away when I post the reviews. They should all happen between now and August. My birthday is in April and I'll giveaway a signed copy of Happy Hour and what ever else I can think of ;-)

I feel bad that I wasn't able to donate blood when I posted about it in December but I have an appointment later today to try again.

That's all I can think of at the moment, I'm still reeling from the 742!

Have a great week,

Oh yes, I saw all the posts you did about your book challenges and I felt faint. Good luck to you!
