  1. I'm participating in fewer and fewer challenges just because there's too much pressure, although I do read over 100 books a year. I hope you have fun with your challenges!

  2. last year I read a little over 200 books but this year I I made my challenge at 110 but so far read 115 (and not counting comic books)

  3. I'd love to join but I'm pretty sure that I can't read that many books! I think I hit 50 this year but 100 would be really hard!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
