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!

Went to a Barnes & Noble during Banned Book Week expecting a display....even a small one.....there was NOTHING. When I mentioned it, one of the clerks didn't know what I was talking about and the other was "wasn't that last month?"

I'm hoping Jade has a great time out of school....I'm going to lunch with my Mom :)

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 Leah for hosting in September, the October host is Serena at Savvy Verse and Wit (blog link, not post link).

Of course the independent bookstores were all over it (Banned Books Week, I mean). But I guess you can't expect a big box Wal-Marty kind of book store to swing to note it. They probably think of it as leftist.
