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

and a have a safe 4th of July to all my US friends. I love that we celebrate our independence but I don't like the hate that still abounds, keeping some of us from enjoying our independence to the fullest. The celebrations themselves can be scary - can you believe that some people shoot their guns up into the air? Where do they think the bullet is going to go!

and off my soapbox...... I did fairly well in avoiding book purchases this week but the Dollar Spot at Target got me and so did the used book sale at the library. Plus all the ebook publishers are right there, all the time, taunting me with great books ;)

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.

July's host is Gwendolyn at A Sea of Books (blog link, not post link).
