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.

Better late! Dewey's Read-a-thon





Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon
My official start time was 5 a.m. and if I had remembered which weekend I would have stayed up for another hour to get done toward the challenge. sigh

Let's see what kind of trouble I can get in starting 8 1/2 hours late.  I'm just glad that was sleep time and not movie time ;-)

I like your layout for the updates. I may have to steal a couple of ideas for next time. ;)
