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.

Jan 20: I've had a stressful year and totally forgot about the challenge! I'm not even sure the book I finished this week wasn't started before the challenge started!

I did start Frankenstein on Tuesday.

I'm thinking I'll do good the get the Sherlock Holmes stories read. I've been comfort reading online and without an ISBN they don't count.

~ 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! ~ Totally changed. New goals: Sherlock Holmes!
