Update on Reading Challenges
I'm still doing pretty well on most of my challenges. I've had a hard time finding time to knock out some of my "Just For Fun" reads. I'm thinking about picking a month or a few weeks and doing nothing but reading for fun. We'll see! Anyway. If you want to see my progress, you can do so here.

Other Noteworthy Posts / Happenings
  •  April has been a month-long prayer focus around the world for the people living in the Horn of Africa. Will you join me in continuing to pray for these people?
  • I celebrated my 2nd Blogaversary at the beginning of the month. It was an incredible celebration. Thanks to all who stopped by!
  •  The Christy Awards announced their 2012 nominations. I was so excited to see some books that I've truly LOVED on the list.
So . . . now that you know what I've been up to, what have YOU been up to?!
