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: Picture Books!

2016, I Love Picture Books Reading Challenge, Bea's Book Nook, picture books

I Love Picture Books

Hosted at Bea's Book Nook - Thanks for taking over!
for more information and to sign up, click here

Basically read picture books, to yourself or to a child. There are no levels so pick a number and start reading. She wants reviews too!

I love picture books so I should pick a high number but most of them are not accessible right now and remembering to write reviews is hard! um, if I re-read a book that I've already written a review for, can I just link the old review? :-)

Oh, let's see, I was to read at least 24 but I only read 16 for 2015 and reviewed even less so for 2016, I'm going to read 12 Picture Books and cross my fingers that I remember to review them!
