Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

I Double Dog Dare You!

TBR Double Dog Dare
January 1 to February 11

hosted at Ready When You Are, C.B.

Sign- up here

The TBR Dare is back again for a third year; except this time it's much more intense.  It's not just a dare, it's a double dog dare.  Dakota and I double dog dare you to join in the fun...

and so the post goes. C.B. is funny and you need to read the whole post to truly experience it. I can read book club books (na), library books if requested before the first, books ordered but not received before the first and my exception books.

...If you'd like to join the TBR Double Dog Dare for a book, a day, a week, a month, or for the duration, please sign-up using Mr. Linky.

Since a picture book ruined my challenge last year, the day before I would have finished it, I making an exception. Well, two exceptions.

  • picture books
  • review books

How long can I go with out reading a new book? Sigh. I don't believe I can make it the full four months. I do believe, with the above exceptions I can make it thru January. I need a challenge but not a built-in failure so I'm going for . . .

 Six Weeks

and plan to read only from my TBR pile (with exceptions) from Jan 1 to Feb 11. Maybe I'll get a new book for Valentine's Day ;-)

Books Read
1. Wicked Gift by Sean Michael
2. The Missing Monarch by Rachelle McCalla

Failed January 23!
