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: A-Z Locations

A-Z Locations
Oct 1, 2015 to Sep 30, 2016

Wacky Reading Challenges Group at GoodReads

for more information or to sign up, click here
(you'll need to be a GR member, the group is for 18+)

Guidelines: Book must be at least 125 pages, any format, any genre, re-reads acceptable, so are library books.

This A-Z challenge will focus on locations. For each letter A-Z, read a book set in a location that starts with the corresponding letter. You may use city, town, state, country, off planet, etc. These locations can be real or fictional - doesn't matter.

For the hard letters Q, X, Y and Z, you are welcome to use a location that contains the letter - it does not have to be the first letter.
