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've been super busy with Book Monster's Pick Your Thon.

Went to the gym and I want to go on record.....I hate my personal trainer.....seriously, he worked me hard but my thighs still hurt two days later...having trouble sitting and standing up again....well, walking too ;) It wasn't until Friday that I could do stairs without pain

Just as well I was so busy reading

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 Anna at Diary of an Eccentric for hosting in March.... April's host is Cindy's Love of Books (blog link, not post link).

I'm curious about The Book Lover. Was 'Sheetcake' a review book? How frustrating that some pages were blank!
Good luck with your trainer :)

That sucks that The Sheetcake was missing pages. Happy reading
