Eclectic Reader Challenge!


January 1  –  December 31


I’m not into sports but my country and family love hockey.  In the National Hockey League, my province’s team is The Winnipeg Jets‘A hat trick’ is a phenomenon when the same hockey player scores 3 goals, in the same game.  We traditionally throw hats onto the ice to honour the achievement.  I can’t say how anyone gets a hat back.  I am sometimes found using the term to note 3 of anything.  I use it now upon my third post about hard reading circles:  a hat trick of ball-busters!

I joined Ireland, didn’t know speculative fiction, and Shelley seeks 11 genres!  Some are so closely tied, we discussed her definitions.  It works out I read from 10 categories before finding her event.  I need to review most and tackle categories #7 and 9.  My choices are below.  I created 3 new menus atop my blog.  Please subscribe, or watch for all of my feedback in each.  :)
