It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon


A Winter's Respite
Read-a-Thon
January 16 - January 29

hosted at Seasons of Reading

There's lots of info so check it out

Social Media: #WintersRespite

This is a midnight to midnight kind of challenge, Central Standard Time, so adjust your start/end times and we'll all be reading at the same time. Any format, and length, any genre - including children's books as long as you read some adult ones too. This is two weeks of relaxed reading or you can kick it up a notch and get some of your challenge books out of the way.

There are no mini-challenges but there will be a prize so check out the guidelines page to make sure you do what's necessary to qualify.

~ Goals ~
I'm going to use this time to make sure the books I need to read for the month get read plus one or two ARCs and maybe another for a challenge. Hopefully I don't spend all the time reading on-line serials but only because they don't count!
