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.

There are two ways to do this and 3 levels. I'm going with Annually (calendar year) and Acquainted. I hope to read 4 books that count during 2017.

~ Books Read ~
1. A Solid Core of Alpha by Amy Lane*

*erotic, m/m, sci-fi, main character is traveling in a shuttle for 10 years - all by himself. As his learns holodeck programing he projects part of himself onto each "person", even to the point of feeling like a murderer when he must delete them because of fuel concerns. Then he spends time in a center because the four that became like his family are now voices in his head. If you're okay with m/m erotica, this was a fantastic book.

I love doing this challenge. I've been undergoing depression treatment and have been writing a memoir. You can see my progress on my blog
