A to Z Blogging Challenge - sticky post, please scroll down
Just to let you know what's going to happen in April. I'm going to try to review a book for every letter. Too bad I didn't think of it soon enough to have a backlog. Some of them are novels, some are short stories, and a couple are children's books. There will be romance, thrillers, and erotica. Mostly m/m and I hope to remember to label those for you so you can skip it if it isn't your cup of tea.

Sundays will have two posts, my regular post plus my Monday post. My Thursday post will still show up on Thursday, hard to give up the kitties.

Links to all the bloggers are here, please stop in and chat with some of us.

There are over 1,400 bloggers joining up for this event. There are 22 categories you can sign up with but with personal, miscellaneous and adult content on the list, who knows what you'll find when you visit.

I was going to link up each letter on every post for you but I already talk a lot ;-) and didn't want the posts to be any longer than they already are. I moved my BLOG ARCHIVE list so you can check them out that way. Each should be obvious, they'll say something like "A is for . . . Alex (sports romance)".

The Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon is over. I had a list of three books when I started. One for a specific date review (finished), one print and one ebook, both for fun and challenges. I may not have purchased The Deacon but it sounded good and was a free download. The other, A Cookie Before Dying is book two of a series. I thoroughly enjoyed book one and was looking forward to book two.

So, my Original list:
The Deacon (kindle on my laptop)
Nitt Witt Hill (print)
A Cookie Before Dying (print)

last post's Current Status list, modified:
The Deacon (kindle on my laptop) location 541 of 8240
Nitt Witt Hill (print) - finished (reviewed too)
A Cookie Before Dying (print) page 173
Time Slice (print) page 63
A Three Dog Life (print) - finished
Always (kindle on my touch) location 283 of 2563
Virgin River (print) - finished (Fri early am)
Hidden Summit, page 109
Great Short Poems, jumped around...Purple cow anyone?

Mini-Challenges: kept forgetting about them
Tweets: remembered some

Won a book!

Planned to finish three.
Started 9, finished 3. Not the same 3 as I started with but still finished 3 books. A couple more hours and I'll have Hidden Summit finished ;)

Thanks Michelle, that was fun. I hope to do it again next year, and remember the mini-challenges!
