Anywho, I can't believe this is the first Free for All Friday I've done this year, but it is. So how is everyone's year going? Anyone doing any interesting reading challenges? I've challenged myself to read 144 books this year, which really isn't a lot when you figure all I have to read is 12 books a month. Now that my guilty pleasure, Downton Abbey, is over, I'll have plenty of time for reading.
Speaking of Downton Abbey, Shirley Maclaine joins the cast next season as Lady Grantham's (Elizabeth McGovern) mother. I can't wait to see her butt heads with the Dowager Countess (Dame Maggie Smith). And while we're talking about Maggie, here are my top five favorite moments with her.
And finally, just wanted to make another plug for donations to the River City Readers program. I've added a PayPal button for those that would prefer to donate that way instead of through Fundly. Whether or not we meet the goal, all donations will go to the program.
