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 Your (Book) Shelf reading challenge

Read Your (Book) Shelf
Reading Challenge

hosted by Michelle at Gather Together and Read

for more information or to sign up, click here


There are only 12 books to read but the picking which books is tricky for me.  There are allowances for books out of series order. You can read the books in order or randomly, just read one every month.

1. Go to a shelf/pile and pick one book
2. Also pick the next 11
3. That your list of books to read this year.

Now, off to pick a shelf/pile!

Okay, I have a shelf! I did move books around to avoid things like #4 when I still need to read #2 then realized that most of them were "first in a new series" so I moved a couple more. shrug

No picture yet but here are the titles:
Nightmares Can Be Murder by Mary Kennedy
Murder, She Barked by Krista Davis
Lending a Paw by Laurie Cass
Looming Murder by Carol Ann Martin
Hope Ignites by Jaci Burton (dang, should I swap out for Hope Flames?) - YES
Hope Flames by Jaci Burton
Kneading to Die by Liz Mugavero
Peaches and Scream by Susan Furlong
Tempest in a Teapot by Amanda Cooper
Bless Her Dead Little Heart by Miranda James
A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine
A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff
Wish by Barbara O'Connor - Jan 4
