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 ~ Memorial Day edition

Happy Memorial Day to all my USA friends.... remember those who have paid/are paying for our freedom.

We spend the day with the family, here for a swim party. My brothers and their families are invited but I don't think they'll all come (out of town) but my in-laws will be here along with friends. This year a few cousins will be in town for a wedding so we're happy they can come.


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.

Thank you to April's host: MariReads. May's host is
4 the Love of Books.
