  5. I've listed my book on my 100+ book challenge post; however, the above url is for my review of my first book of the year. Do we have to have a review for each book we read? In other words, had I not had a review posted I wouldn't have a URL to enter above, so what URL would I have provided? Would it have been the URL to the original post? the post that also will list all the books I will have read?

    1. This Linky is for all your book reviews in January. Each month a new Linky for reviews will be posted. The initial sign up is at the top of this post, just click ' Sign Up Post' or the top of the blog is a Page Button for the challenge where you will find the Linkys for everything challenge related. You can use your original sign up post to list your books, instead of separately. It's just easier, but up to you.

  6. ok, maybe I'm slow? Maybe I'm just not able to focus right now? I'm sorry. So, to confirm, I can follow the original sign up link (I put on my blog where people can follow back to your blog) and then post my reviews there? Is that right? It might be best to message me on FB or something like that to let me know. Thanks so much.

  7. Freda: The linky seems to have disappeared...at least I'm not seeing it after refreshing the page a few times. I'll come back tomorrow and see if it's reappeared. My latest book is another dud (I seem to be on a roll with not-so-good reads at the moment)....so you're not missing much by not seeing the link to the review yet. :-)

  8. It's back now! I'll link up. (Not sure what was going on...maybe I was in a weird "No Linky Zone" there for a while.

#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. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

#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.
