Edelweiss Challenge stats and Fictionophile updates

Hello lovely blogging friends.
Believe it or not, we are past the halfway point of 2020.
Some, like me, wish that 2020 could be a ‘do-over’ as both personally and worldwide, it has been a bit of a DUD.

Anyway, enough gloom and doom…

As the moderator of the Edelweiss Reviewer’s Group on Goodreads, I am delighted to report that we now have 334 members!
Here is how the Edelweiss Reviewers Group Reading/Reviewing Challenge stands today:As you can see, we are standing at 32% completed when we should be over 50% given the date.  Oh dear…. are we forgetting to keep track?

The first Summer BINGO winner was Virginia Williams (Rosepoint Publishing Blog) I posted about Virginia’s win on July 2nd.

And now, we have a second BINGO!

Carla, from Carla Loves To Read has completed a BINGO on her card:The books she read to complete her BINGO are:

The word house is in the title: The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman
Has been on your TBR for more than a year: The Lost Child by Ann Troup
Has a number in the title: Two Truths and a Lie by Meg Mitchell Moore
The word daughter is in the title: The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter by Hazel Gaynor, Narrated by Imogen Church

I’m only one book away from a BINGO, but close doesn’t win. LOL

Here is what my BINGO card looks like:

On a personal note, my darling grandson has been very sick these past weeks. He had to have yet another surgery. He is still in hospital, but he continues to improve every day.It has been difficult as a grandparent, because we couldn’t visit him in hospital due to Covid-19 restrictions. I can’t wait for him to be released so that I can give him a cuddle.

I sincerely hope that you are all having a marvelous summer and that the heat is not making you too lethargic to read.

    Awwww …I’m so sorry to hear your grandson was in the hospital 💔💔💔 that’s so stressful.
    Some say they are not accepting that they are a year older on their birthdays this year because they didn’t get to live the year! 2020 has been so discouraging. Just taking it a day at a time for the long haul.
