Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge



Okay...so MizB at Should Be Reading just asked us on Musing Monday whether we had any special reading that we do as it gets closer to Christmas. And I said: "Um...no." Because, you know, I don't. At least I didn't until The True Book Addict announced that she's sponsoring The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge where we need to read Christmas books. And I think we've alread established that I can't resist reading challenges......

For full details, hop on the link above and check out the challenge site. In short, to participate you have to read Christmas books...no kid's books. The challenge will run from November 26th to January 6th. The levels are:

Candy Cane: read one book
Mistletoe: read two-four books
Christmas: read five or six books
