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

Spotlight on review books. . .

Truly a case of my eyes being bigger than my stomach, or in this case, my time/desire. I have a HUGE backlog of books to review as well as new ones coming in and they're just sitting there! I was thinking of doing a wall of shame post but what I really need to do is tell you about the books as they come in then review them as I read them. Once upon a time I did this, it's time to start up again. I'm such a mood reader that if I force myself to read a book I won't like it. huh, could explain some of my school grades, shrug.

Yes there are duplicates, one for me to giveaway. Some of these are read/reviewed but this is an older picture and there are more of them now. Plus, ebooks!

Here are links to posts where I spotlighted the author, posted an article from them or just told you about the book. I hope to add to the list as I catch up with my pile but I don't want to overwhelm you with spotlight posts so it will be a slow process.
