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!)

Monday Mailbox/Reading?

Jumping around the blog this week lead me to a story about one of the books I purchased this week. It seems that Texas Department of Transportation (DoT) has an anti-littering camphaign with the slogan "Don't Mess with Texas". Along comes Texas author, Christie Craig, with a new book, "Don't Mess with Texas".

To say that Texas DoT isn't happy is an understatement. See article here and here. Wish I could remember the blog that started all this for me.

Hope everyone has plans for a great week.

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.

A big Thank You to Gwen for hosting in July, the August host is Staci at Life in the Thumb (blog link, not post link).

Received for Review:

The Knot Artist by India Wilson (kindle)
