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!)

Happy Monday?

Sad news.....found out that one of my very favorite authors has died. Lilian Jackson Braun died June 7, 2011, she was 97. Author of 29 books in the The Cat Who... series plus short story collections, she worked at the Detroit Free Press for 30 years. Her main character, Qwill, started the series as a journalist. It doesn't say specifically, but I'm sure she is survived by her husband, Earl Bettinger, The Husband Who.

She'll be missed.

Now, on to the good stuff!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month. June's host is The Bluestocking Guide to Books (blog link, not post link).
