  6. Adorable pic of child reading. Was that someone you know or just a random stock photo? Either way it complies with my challenge theme.

    Which by the way you did not miss. Thru no fault of your own you ended up on last year's challenge post. I just figured out in the last half hour why I kept getting comments via email that weren't showing up on the challenge post all of which bemoaned missing out but willing to leave their link anyway.

    The links to the challenge were incorrect at the hub for the 2nd and 3rd hour of the challenge.

    There were seven of you led astray who yet persisted and as long as I find the RIFF link & a contribution on the theme you'll be included in the drawing.

    Read with Joy
