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.

Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge February

Outdo Yourself
Reading Challenge

Hosted by Corinne

For more information or to sign up, click here

Challenge yourself to read more this year than last year. Any format, any genre. Re-reads and challenge cross-overs allowed. Books that are 100 pages (give or take) count.

There are several levels. You can go up but not down.

Number of Books Read out of My Goal for the Year
2013: 168 out of 200 (Didn't keep track of 100+ pages for 2012)
2014: 211 out of 174-178 (then moved up a level!)
2015: 170 out of 227 :-(
2016: 214 (as of 12-30) out of 181-185

I've got real life plans for this year that might interfere with my reading so I'm going for
. . . Out of Breath  . . . 
and hope to read 6-10 more books than my 2016 goal.
Because, really, I read 30 books in December and I've got one more day!
