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.

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon


Bout of Books
Read-a-Thon

August 13 - 19

(and why did I think this was 14 - 20?)

I do have RL plans for this week but no wedding to attend or trips coming up. Plus I'm still trying to be offline so even with lunches, shopping and starting a running program, I should be spending a lot of time reading.

This is where I'll update my reading but I'm sure any challenges I complete will have their own pages.

I'll spend some time reading each day

Good luck with your goals and have fun! That's a great list of books and Bout-of-Books is a great way to clear out some good reads. ;)
