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!)

Terrific Tuesday

White Sleeper and Thread Reckoning . . . .

Hosted at Bibliophile by the Sea
Every Tuesday, she'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of her current read. Why don't you join us?

The cadre of black ATF Yukons was spread under a pair of white pines overlooking the wide, rushing Salmon River. The river was also referred to as the River of No Return. Most locals didn't know the story behind the alternate moniker, but names were a peculiar thing in Idaho. Back in the 1800's, when Congress was considering making it a state, a lobbyist named George Willing suggested the Indian name Idaho. It stuck but it was later discovered that the name was a prank by Mr. Willing. The word "Idaho" had no meaning. Mr Willing, however, sealed his place in history by providing the only state name that meant absolutely nothing.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read Open to a random page
2. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page ~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!~ make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
3. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I made a mental note to ask Francesca where she got them. I'd never seen imitation jewels of this quality before, and I'd love to carry them in the store.
