Up at 3AM with a migraine, so I thought I might as well start reading for #24in48. Here‘s my #tbr. Finishing up a couple things and got some good #graphicnovels. Also some ebooks I‘ll be delving into.

Happy reading everyone!

Kaye We have matching heads today. I woke up with one too. 🤯 Just took some pills so hopefully it‘ll go away soon. Good luck with your reading. 👍🏼 4y

megnews @kaye @Godmotherx5 Thanks for the well wishes. My migraine went away mid morning yesterday but I decided to stay away from screens and focus on reading so didn‘t post too much. @kaye hope you‘re feeling better too. 4y
Kaye Thanks , mine just simmered all day yesterday but today was terrible. Spent most of the day trying to sleep it off. Those things are miserable. Hopefully it‘s gone again for now. #litsymigraineclub is a group I‘d rather not be in 🤯 4y
