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

Mini-Challenge: April


Wacking Reading Challenges 
Mini-Challenge
April 1 - April 30

From the host: Spring is here! To celebrate, we have a mini challenge. There are four tasks below relating to the Spring season. You may choose to complete a task, do a spell out challenge using any word/words you associate with spring, or you may do a combination of both. How much of the challenge you do is up to you. Just have fun!

Challenge Rules:
Books should be at least 125 pages. All formats are acceptable. Re-reads are fine--just be sure to re-read the entire book. When posting a book read, please include: title, author, and date you finished reading the book.

1. April Fools: – Read a book whose title ends in ‘L’ or ‘S’ – OR read the first book of a series – OR read book #1 or #11 from your TBR.
