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.

I had great plan for this read-a-thon. I have a couple "must read this month" books plus Sherlock Holmes short stories that I was going to make sure I read. I also want to get one or two ARCs read and reviewed.

Except life got in the way. My Mom, after years of declining health, said good-bye at the beginning of the year. Then my MIL went into the hospital on a Sunday complaining of being tired and chest pains. They scheduled her for surgery the next morning!

I figured I'd be spending more time in the real world then I'd be able to spend reading. I'm helping my Dad go through all my Mom's stuff.We can't just donate/toss it all, my Mom likes to hide money! We've got to check every pocket, purse, envelope, book, folded fabric, box of trinkets, . . .

So. How did I do?
I read 3 Sherlock Holmes stories
I read 15 other books (one was short)
 ~ I read 2,484 pages ~
I started four other books

I posted the list of books read on my update post, here, if you're interested.
