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.

RaT Wrap Up Post




Summer Wrap-up Read-a-Thon
Wrap-up  :-)
August 4 - 12



hosted at Some Like it Paranormal and In Between

A lot of things interfered with my full participation in this read-a-thon, mainly I had planned on being offline this month but there was a wedding and other stuff.

Being offline meant I was able to spend a lot of time reading (stupid FB games) but will look forward to participating more fully next summer.


~ Number of Books Read ~ 
14.5
I finished a book I had already started, more than half of the book was unread so I counted it as a full book. The half book is because the binding (and current ISBN) was a two title book and I only read one of them. Several of the titles are short stories but with their own ISBN so they were counted as a full book.
One of the books was nonfiction and one was a re-read but the sequel was a new read. I don't know if I'll read the other book in the Edge of Forever binding before Midnight.
Please see my original post for a list of books read.
