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.

RC: Trying to read 36 or more library books in 2014

 
I had so much fun doing this, let's do it again!
I Love Library Books
Reading Challenge
2014


hosted by me :-)
sign- up here


Our love of reading can be expensive! Not only are we purchasing books but we also need space to keep them. I've started using the library (again) but couldn't find a challenge to help me. Here it is. There are a number of levels, for those who don't have a library card yet to those that live there. Enjoy!



Requirements:

  • choose a level - you may move up as needed, just not down.
  • check books out of the library
  • books may overlap with other challenges
  • any format allowed (print, ebook, audio)
  • reviews are not necessary but a list of books read is.
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in
I made it to Young Adult (24) during 2013 but I'm not sure I'll complete the Adult(36) level before the year is over :-( I'm currently reading #30 and the rest are here, I just don't know if I'll get to them.

So, for I'm going for Adult, again, and hope to read 36 books that I've checked out of the library. . . I've already got several requested with a vacation hold until Jan 1 :D


Books Read
1. Lara by Bertrice Small
2. Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George
3. The Forgotten by David Baldacci
(three books in three months does NOT put me on schedule for reading 36 this year)
4. Worth Dying For by Lee Child
5. A Wanted Man by Lee Child
6. Jack Reacher's Rules compiled by Val Hudson
7. Never Go Back by Lee Child
8. Pete at the Beach by James Dean (Pete the Cat)
9. How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron
(nine books in five months STILL doesn't put me on schedule for reading 36 this year)

Need to read four books a month for the rest of the year!
