I'd been trying to do monthly wrap-ups last year, but I just can't seem to get on schedule. So, I'm going to try quarterly this year. I'm a little early this time around, but I have plans this weekend.
I haven't finished any challenges -- yet! I have visited 11 US states...well, 10 and Washington, DC which isn't a state but is on my list. I've also visited 4 countries. I've actually visited more than that, but I'm not counting places that are just stop-overs. They have to be a real part of the story.
My favorite new-to-me book this time around is State of Fear by Michael Crichton. My absolute favorite, however, was a re-read, The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King. It would likely be my favorite under almost any imaginable circumstances. 2017 has been a great reading year so far!
