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.

I couldn't resist ... Summer Wrap-up Read-a-Thon

You might not have noticed... I like read-a-thons. You did? ;-) Okay, so you know I love doing all kinds of read-a-thons... 24-hour, week-long, genre specific, reviews, doesn't matter-sign me up. In this case, I'll just be returning from vacation. I had my dates wrong and thought that there was no way I could join. Woo Hoo!

This is actually too far away to plan specific books. I will be trying to read stuff to complete open challenges and finishing the huge "books stacked by my reading chair" list. Not only that, I was going to be unplugged in August. I don't know how many challenges I'll complete but I can keep track of any reading I do.

Good luck with the readathon! I wish I was better at them, but find it too exhausting.
