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.

Reading Challenge Memorable Memoirs



Memorable Memoirs


Hosted by Melissa at
The Betty and Boo Chronicles

2011



This is a low-key challenge to encourage us to read memoirs. Or if we enjoy them, to read more!

Anything that in your mind qualifies as a memoir will meet the challenge requirements. Letters, diaries, autobiographies, books on writing memoirs ... in my book, they all count as Memorable Memoirs.

1. If a Dog could Blog - review - while not your normal memoir, the author specifically states that she wanted to share the laughter and this is the result.

2. Until Tuesday - The story of a wounded veteran and his service dog. The trials of life before they came together as well as the ups and downs they dealt with together.

3. The Courage to Start - Classified under "The arts" but I feel it has so much of his own story in it, it counts. The author, John "The Penguin" Bingham, shares how he started running while encouraging us to "Waddle On" no matter how fast or how far we can currently run.

4. One Silent Sleepless Night - review - The author writes about his trip through his memories as well as worry about the future during a pain filled, sleepless night after surgery.

5. Repairing Rainbows - review goes live 8-25 - Lynda writes about losing her mother and siblings in a plane crash and what life was like afterwards and beyond. Wonderful book.
