I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

I'm Baaack!

 Maybe ;-)

I'm currently graveyard caregiver for my Dad while our regular caregiver is on vacation. He's not coming back until he has a negative test so I'm crossing my fingers that he and his family are being careful!

I want to start reading things with an ISBN instead of so much fanfiction. My reading goal this year? Twelve books. Oh how the mighty have fallen. 

My go to site for challenges is closed, sigh, so I've got to go through past challenges to see who is doing what this year. I should do my regular ones too in case someone is looking for them. It may take me all month to get everything posted and I'm sure nothing will be "pretty".


Happy New Year and may everyone have a healthy year
