Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! 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!

Challenge Complete: 52 Books in 52 Weeks

January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016

Hosted by Robin at My Two Blessings
Every year Robin at My Two Blessings hose the 52 Books in 52 Weeks Reading Challenge. The rules are simple. Just read one book per week for a total of 52 books in the year. Considering that I normally read over 100 books each year, I call this one my "slam-dunk" challenge. I just finished my book for this week...and so another year of this challenge comes to a close. See you all for another 52 in 2017.

LOL, LuAnn, I think I do it because I don't want to grow up--I just want to do books all day and not have to "adult." :-)
