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.

Monday:
Reading? check.
Comment? check. (Going to need a lot of Coffee and Nightmare on Bookstreet)
Twitter updates?
Challenges? check.

Strangely enough, I was in bed soon after midnight so my reading didn't start until after 4 a.m. I started The Third Gate by Lincoln Child yesterday and am continuing it today. Not on list, starting from page 52. Also reading A Soldier's Choice by D. L. Warner, am on page 77. It isn't on the list either. sigh

Tuesday:
Reading? check
Comment? check. (Curiosity Killed the Bookworm, A Librarian's Library, Read. Run. Study.)
Twitter updates? :/ forgot
Challenges? Re-Title It. No, but maybe could change The Third Gate to He Must Not Be Named, the early years.

Starting today on page 146 for The Third Gate and 90 for A Soldier's Choice. What I really need to do is stop reading online! HGTV grabbed my attention for a couple of hours too. mmm...can I set a vacation email "I'm out of the office for the next 7 days due to a Read-a-Thon"?

It isn't Day 3 here but I've already started working on challenges/comments. I've got another hour to read and while I set a timer, I think I'll be too engrossed in the book to check what page I'm on when it goes off.

I'm calling today "over", reading The Third Gate, page 216 and A Soldier's Choice, page 115. Still not reading anything from goal list.

Thanks for stopping by. 4am reading! I'm not even sure I've managed 4am even during Dewey's where I undoubtedly nod off during the early hours.

Glad you've been getting reading done! I'm super impressed by your 4 AM reading. :D
