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.

Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks Reading Challenge


52 in 52
Reading Challenge
2013

Hosted by Robin of My Two Blessings
at Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks.

 Requirements:
  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013
  • Our book week will begin on Sundays
  • Participants may join at any time.
  • All books are acceptable except children books.**
  • All forms of books are acceptable including e-books, audio books, etc.
  • Re-reads are acceptable as long as they are read after January 1, 2013.
  • Books may overlap other challenges. 
  • Create an entry post linking to this blog (link after the 1st).
  • Come back and sign up with Mr. Linky in the "I'm participating post" below this post (link after the 1st).  
  • You don't have a blog to participate.  Post your weekly book in the comments section of each weekly post.
  • Mr. Linky will be added to the bottom of the weekly post for you to link to reviews of your most current reads.

All the mini challenges are optional. Mix it up anyway you like. The goal is to read 52 books. How you get there is up to you.

**in reference to children books. If it is a child whose reading it and involved in the challenge, then that's okay. If an adult is doing read aloud with kids, the book should be geared for the 9 - 12 age group and above and over 100 pages. If adult reading for own enjoyment, then a good rule of thumb to go by "is there some complexity to the story or is it too simple?" If it's too simple, then doesn't count.

The first year I did this I was all about the numbers. The next year I tried to read a book a week. Vacation interfered with that so I'm going for that again for 2013. Also, all the books I read for the 52 must be 100 pages or longer. No more Sips ;-)
