It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Challenges:
Day 1, from Sarah Says Read:
So, here is your question topic to answer / discuss / muse over…
“What do you like best about readathons? Do you have any readathon traditions or rituals? If this is your first readathon, what do you like so far? Discuss away!”

Totally too late for this one! I spend a lot of time reading but love when I can tell my husband I'm in a read-a-thon and he gets it! I like making plans and seeing how close I follow them. No real traditions or rituals, just reading ;)


Day 2, from Nyx Book Reviews

I tweeted question 1 and did a blog post for question 2


Day 3, from Books Devoured

Re-Title challenge, total fail


Day 4, from Bookgoonie
Oh, I know one! I haven't dipped my toe into the waters of Zombies and only know the one (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) because I remember my reaction when I saw it at Costco


Day 5, from The Reading Housewives of Indiana

Books and Shoes! Love this one....maybe I'll even get to it!


Day 6, from Smash Attack Reads

Spine Poetry!


Day 7, TWO giveaways
Not Now...I'm Reading! and Kelsey's cluttered Bookshelf
