I hope everyone is good this week. Time for daylight savings here tonight so I have to be careful not to stay up too late as we lose and hour. :-)
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Ther most popular cakes are chocolate, chocolate and chocolate! Then ice cream cake, cheesecake and Angel food. A few have unusual tastes like Tres Lech for Bookhishqueen, white cake for LindaK and red velvet for Dione. And Happy Birthday to miki whose BD must be coming up. :-)
Everyone agreed that we have books languishing except for Sarah who just finished hers! About a half dozen might do a challenge but a couple wouldn't be ready for April. I may do one that spreads over two months. Or maybe one in April and another in June. I'll take a week or so think about it.
~~~~The Winner from SBB #89 comments is: #10 LindaK, who can make a book choice from the ARC/Review titles, Christmas titles or Love titles - all linked near the end of the post. Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
WEEK #90 Questions
Q1. Nrlymrtl asks: If you could design your personal library, with endless resources, what would be the 3 most important things about it??
A: I suppose smoky rooms might not be good for a library but I do love our warm fireplace in our den which has multiple bookshelves. I have put the books on the shelves at the end farthest from the fire. I would want a really comfy chair and good light. And then I would add a good computer system for researching. Hmmm - I guess that is four things. :-)
I don't think this one has a fireplace but I love the use of space!

Q2. My non-bookish Question this week: What is your favorite bird??
A: If I had to pick one favorite I guess it would be the hummingbirds. I love to watch them zip to the feeder and chase each other away. Sometimes they stop a few feet away and stare at us. They are sooo cute. My second choice would be the cardinals. We have a family that has a nest and we have three or four young cardinals playing in the back yard trees when they are big enough. I love the sound of their sweet whistle in the morning.
