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.

Dewey's Read-a-thon Wrapping it up!

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon
End of Event and Wrap up

Well, the wrap up is actually on another post. I put it all on a single post when I started and have been updating it. Check it out here I did take a picture of my pile of books, and then some, but never posted it.
End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you?
all of them, I was thinking it was next weekend so I hadn't prepared myself or my family.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Lee Child's Jack Reacher series
Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series
Young Wizard's series by Diane Duane (one of those if you liked Harry Potter series only I think they're a reading level down)

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I didn't notice anything broken :-)

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

How many books did you read?
part of three books

What were the names of the books you read?
The Christmas Wedding Ring by Susan Mallery
What's His Passion? anthology
Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn 

Which book did you enjoy most?
The Christmas Wedding Ring by Susan Mallery

Which did you enjoy least?

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I'm very likely to participate again and I'm going to stick with what I know best. Reading.
