I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Happy Monday

Weekly report of last week's activities, reading and new books in the house....

Last week was not a usual week for me. No gym, no volleyball, no library until Friday and very little reading. I did visit. . .
Afton Canyon, CA

Red Rock Canyon, NV

Valley of Fire, NV

. . . and the Barstow, CA outlets (new shoes!),  I'm so ready for a foot soak and a pedicure!

Oh, I was able to download the Color Run pictures :-)

Friday - all those pesky things that must be done when your away a few days....mail, groceries, laundry (library!), catching up with blog things, ...

Saturday -

Sunday -

Hope everyone has a great week planned!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home; print, electronic and audio. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

Lovely photos! Sometimes life gets in the way of reading! But then when you finally do read, it's even better....
