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 Give away

I hope those who celebrate Halloween had a safe night.

No school update at scheduling time

Two more chapters to read this week, and quizzes, plus start the next paper. sigh, why did I want to go back to school? The reasons have escaped me. I've discovered I'd rather cook than do homework and I don't like to cook!

Son has passed the test and is awaiting notification of an interview time (Electricians Union).

Hope everyone has plans for a great week.

giveaway at the end of the post ;)
