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!)

Monday, March 5, 2012

well, it's Monday but I'm not too happy about it.

Nothing wrong, really, shopping and lunch with my Mom were great but I'm at a funeral today. My Aunt died, it wasn't unexpected, just sad.

Other sad news...Jan Berenstain has died, following her husband who died in 2005. Their children will continue this beloved series. My youngest is 22 (years!) and I'm still buying the books.

Good news is that I finished the baby blanket before the funeral so I don't have to make an extra trip to deliver it. And, I'm going condo-hunting later this week. Looking for an investment/Daughter's home.

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.

A big thank you to DCMetroreader for hosting in February. March's host is Anna at Diary of an Eccentric .... (blog link, not post link).

So sorry about the loss of your aunt. Always sad, even when expected. Hope the rest of your week goes better:)

Sorry to hear about your aunt. Although it was expected, I know it has to be a hard thing...knowing how close I am to my aunts. I hope you're week gets better. Maybe a great book is just the remedy! =O)

Not a good way to start any week ... with a funeral. I'm sorry for your loss.

And sad to hear about Jan Berenstain. Their books are a delight.
