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!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable day yesterday! We basically repeated Thanksgiving but with more people, gifts, and birthdays.

Spent some time with my parents and brother/SIL. Not as long as I'd like but that's what happens during the holidays. Almost need to go on vacation at a different time in order to spend time with them.

Lunch with Daughter, shopping with Mom, trip to the Post Office {shudder}, I'm ready for a break!

Hope everyone has a great week planned.

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. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

The December's host is Jenny Q at Let Them Read Books (blog link, not post link).
