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.

Pick Your Thon!

Yikes! The Book Monster's Pick-Your-Thon has already started!

The Book Monsters
Pick Your Thon

August 13-18

Sign up here, but hurry!

So to start off, create a post or comment below to answer the following questions.
1. Which thon are you choosing? Readathon, Reviewathon or both? And why?
2. Where are you from? You can be vague or specific, up to you. 
3. Say a little bit about yourself so we can get to know you if we don't already! 
4. What are you currently reading or about to pick up to read?
5. What are your goals for this Pick Your Thon?
1. I'm going with both. I'm already doing Bout of Books but hadn't planned on actually reviewing anything. Might as well overlap my reading and also review something.
2. Northern Hemisphere :-) ... Southern California ... LA area

3. never know what to say here...I love to read (duh), have a had time reviewing. I've started a running program and hope to drop 60+ pounds. Disappointed that gym time will cut into reading time but looking forward to hiking in the Tetons. I'm a SAHM of adult children, only one of which is still home. I'm owned by two cats. Have been married for 26 years. (OH! 27 years on the 16th)

4. I've got a huge stack by my reading chair and need to add The Big Kitty and A Killer Read to it. Code Blood is what I'm hoping to review this week.

5. I'm hoping to review Code Blood this week. I'd like to finish up a couple of challenges but since I was planning on being offline this month I don't really have a plan.

You should get some audiobooks to help you read while working out. I use them for cleaning too and sometimes driving if I'm on the road alone. :)
