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.

Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

Alphabet Soup

Reading Challenge

hosted at Escape with Dollycas into a good book

for more information and to sign up, click here

Basically, use the books you read to cross off letters. Must use the first letter of the title. You can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles. For those pesky Q, X and Z titles the word with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.

I still had five letters to go for the 2016 challenge in November, I'm hoping to do better in 2017. Nope, went through my list of books read and found all five!

edit: There's also a GoodReads group doing an A-Z challenge, more info here

Interesting idea! I have been doing reading challenges for the past couple of years and using the alphabet might be a fun one! I'll have to keep this in mind.
