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!

Read Scotland 2014


@Peggy Ann's Post

So Peggy from Peggy Ann's Post has decided to try her hand at sponsoring a reading challenge and is offering up the Read Scotland 2014 Challenge over on her blog and on Goodreads.  And I saw it. And didn't even think twice--and signed right up. If you'd like to join me, click on the challenge link (or Goodreads) and dive in!

There are four challenge levels.  Since I have no idea how many Scotland-related books I might have lurking on the TBR pile, I've decided to start small and join at the lowest level:


Just A Keek (a little look): 1-4 books read

I'll list the books read below:
1. The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1/2/14)
2. Dandy Gilver & the Proper Treatment of Bloodstains by Catriona McPherson (2/12/14)
3. The Day They Kidnapped Queen Victoria by H. K. Fleming [Hijacking of Queen Victoria's private train in Scotland] (7/2/14) 
4. Two for Sorrow by Nicola Upson  (9/27/14)
Challenge Goal Complete!
5. Lament for a Maker by Michael Innes [Scottish author; set in Scotland] (10/8/14)
6. From London Far by Michael Innes
7. The Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson
