Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Challenge - All the books of Pern

All the Books of Pern Challenge
hosted at West Virginia Red Reads
sign up here

The main rule is that all books must be Pern related (duh!). There are several levels and you can move up but not down. Crossovers okay and any format is acceptable but the books must be read/listened to during 2012. See sign-up page for information.

Green - The original trilogy (or any 3)
Blue - The original trilogy plus the Harper Hall trilogy (or any 6)
Brown - Everything with Ms. McCaffrey as sole author (17)
Bronze - Everything except the ones written by Todd alone (22)
Gold -The whole lot of them (24-25)
and if you're not familiar with Pern, challenge levels match dragon colors!

I LOVE Anne McCaffrey and especially Pern but don't know how many I'll read this year (read the Harper Hall trilogy last year), of course, I love the trilogy and I know exactly where they are.....

I'm going for GREEN and will read 3 books (at least!)
not sure if it will be the original trilogy, I may read Harper Hall again

Books Read:
Dragonsong (4-12)
Dragonsinger (4-17)
Dragondrums (4-21)

I've never read any of the Pern books, and I should. I expect I'd love them. What a great challenge -- enjoy!
