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.

Read 52 books in 52 Weeks

Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks
Reading Challenge

hosted here
for more information click here, and to sign up click here.

The goal is to read 52 books. How you get there is up to you. Our book week starts on Sunday.

Children's books won't count for me but something like Harry Potter/Percy Jackson would. Just not the younger stuff and certainly not picture books. Different rules apply if there is a child involved.

Getting to 52 is not the problem, it is the one a week part that I sometimes have trouble with but that's what I'm going for this year. Again.

There are several mini-challenges listed, across the top, and I'd like to do one or two, I'm just not sure which one(s) yet.

Birthstone Bookology
Well Educated Mind
other mini-challenges will show up during the year

Progress Links:
1st quarter | 2nd quarter | 3rd quarter | 4th quarter | Final Report

When I counted up the books over 100 pages that I've read so far this year, I hit 75. Even if I take out the four I've read in April, I'm still over 52.
