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.

more info here
I dare you not to buy any new books until you've cleared a few of those dusty or chunky or dusty and chunky books from your TBR pile. You know, those ones that have been calling your name but you've been ignoring them in favor of that brightly polished, got to read it now, new book. The siren song of new books. They sing so sweetly but if you stop and listen, the clear bell tones of an old friend sitting lonely on the shelf is crooning your name.

The dusty books are the ones that have been sitting on your shelves for a while - you know which ones.

The chunky books are those that are more than 500 pages long and will take a bit more time, but oh so worth it.

There are several levels for each challenge, The level I'm going for is in bold type.
