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.

Book Recommendations

Kate has fallen behind in her reading and has asked for help....

For your mini-challenge today, I am looking for some book recommendations. It can come in the form of stand alones, series, a book you read yesterday or even years ago. The sky is the limit.

To complete the mini-challenge, create a post or leave a comment giving us your top 5 (or more if you have it) books/series guaranteed to please.

Books I still think about...books I'm rushing to get the next one.....books I read again and again
