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

24in48 Read-a-Thon

This is a midnight to midnight kind of read-a-thon, the idea is to get 24 hours of reading in during the weekend.

I don't have a list of books to read, just a general idea of reading books that count for other challenges. Maybe make sure January's monthly books are read.

I'll just keep updating this post.

First edit, Jan 20: Things have changed since I sign up and I'm not going to be able to devote the time necessary for this read-a-thon.

My Mom died. While I am sad, it's the aftermath that has thrown me for a loop. My Mom was 92 and in very poor health so it wasn't unexpected. My Dad's reaction was very unexpected so I dealing with that.

I've heard it said that no plan survives contact with the enemy. My reading plans for the year have not survived their first contact with the real world. I'll adjust but this is one of the first casualties.

Good luck to everyone on finishing what ever goals you've set yourself and have fun!
