JohannaRose If you don‘t mind me asking, what is Netgalley? I‘ve seen a few posts that mentioned it 🤔😊 2w
TheReadingMermaid @JohannaRose no problem at all sweetheart... Netgalley is an online site (that is free to join) that allows readers and book reviewers to read upcoming books for free in digital form usually, you read the books and then review them on their site. It's really fun you should join! Do you read digital at all? 2w

Do you have a #NetGalley account?

If so, then I‘m safe to assume you‘re behind on a few (dozen, hundred) reads and reviews!

And if not, I suggest you go join! Free ebooks in exchange for reviews! What could be better!?

This weekend we‘re hosting a #NetGalleyReadathon to help you get back on track with those reviews, and make those publishers happy! Please join in, even if you only have a few hours. Anything‘s better than nothing 😉

baes Is NetGalley open to anyone, not just authors and bloggers? 2w
guinsgirlreads I should really join in on this! 👏 😁 2w
Clwojick @baes yup! Anyone can create an account, especially since you have Litsy. At first it‘s easiest to build your feedback ratio by getting from the “read now” category. Once you have a few reviewed you are more likely to get approved for the more highly requested books. 2w

MidnightBookGirl I don't use NetGalley much anymore, but I do download a LOT from Edelweiss (which I never used as a blogger, but do use now as a bookseller). I am so far in the weeds with Edelweiss, but it fortunately doesn't hurt me like it used to on NetGalley. That said, I always like a readathon! 2w

#24B4Monday @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid

I was too tired last night to post my final total for this weekend's readathon. Anyway, this is the final tally. I read Ink and Bone, The Heart's Necessities and started both A Conjuring of Light and Innocent Bystander. Of the last two, I made it about one-third of the way into each. I am calling this one a valiant effort. 😊📚

I still wasn‘t feeling too great today, so aside from working on my bullet journal and listening to a bit of my audiobook, I didn‘t get too much reading in. I also didn‘t track my exact times... but I read roughly 3-3.5 hours today. So that would be 19.5 hrs for 24B4monday and 23.5 hrs for 25inFive.

Wrapping things up, although I‘m continuing to read while I do laundry. I managed 28 hours and 36 minutes. Finished David Copperfield and started and finished The Stone Circle, The Long Call, A Bitter Feast, The Song Never Dies, A Bad Lie and A Death in the Family, since my younger son‘s soccer tournament was canceled halfway through. Not a bad weekend!😁 #24B4Monday

TheReadingMermaid That is so awesome!!! Congratulations!!! 👏👏👏🥳🎉🎉🎉 3w
Fridameetslucy @Rretzler. So what was your fav part of Copperfield? Fav character ? (edited) 3w
See All 10 Comments
rretzler @Fridameetslucy Honestly, I‘m not a huge fan of Dickens, so my favorite part was the end. In part, because it was finally over and in part because I think the ending was the best written part of the novel. I‘m not a big fan of stories that are a slice of someone‘s life - there isn‘t enough in them typically to hold my interest. I‘m not sure I have a favorite character - David, Agnes, Aunt Betsey, Peggotty? Easier to name those I disliked... 3w
Fridameetslucy Im sorry to hear your experience with the book was so unpleasant I am reading this with my 24 year old daughter now (since this is my favorite book she wanted us to discuss it) I think it is a book about whether it is possible to stay kind hearted when cruelty and inequity devastate the ordinary lives of good people and also what it means to become wise and not regretful or bitter. This time around I realized how very modern those questions are. 3w
Andrew65 Simply brilliant time! Well done 🍾🥂👏👏👏🙌 Some great book choices. (edited) 3w
rretzler @Fridameetslucy It wasn‘t actually unpleasant, and I do get what it‘s about, it‘s just that I like books that engage me in a different way. I tend to like books that are more plot driven, ones in which there is a puzzle, mystery, or quest to solve. Books that engage my mind in a different way from just a character study or as I like to call them “a day in the life.” That‘s why I enjoy genre fiction so much more than literary fiction... 3w
rretzler @Fridameetslucy Lit. fic. certainly has its place and I enjoy some authors and books better than others. At this point, my favorite Dickens would be A Christmas Carol-even though it is character driven, it is also very plot driven as well. Probably my favorite author of literary fiction is Kazuo Ishiguro, whose novels I perceive to be more plot driven. In most of Dickens work that I‘ve read, he seems to meander through the lives of his characters 3w
rretzler @andrew65 Thanks! My go-to genre is British mystery and these ARCs did not let me down. The Griffiths and the Crombie were wonderful, and I think I‘ll eventually like the new Cleeves series as much - it may take me a bit of time to get comfortable with the new character. He‘s certainly no Jimmy Perez! 3w
Andrew65 @rretzler Yes, no too many characters like Jimmy Perez around! I think at least 80% of my reading would be mystery and Suspense, especially crime! 3w

My finished hours for #24b4Monday are complete with less than 3 minutes to spare.
I followed through on my impromptu goal to finish my current read, and I‘m about to set up reminders for the readathon on my phone so I can be better prepared going in for the rest of the year!!
As of the end of this one I‘ve read 13 of 19 books in my Goodreads reading challenge for the year.
Until next month! 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻

TheReadingMermaid That's fantastic news!!! Great job!👏👏👏 3w
Chelseabillups30 @TheReadingMermaid, legitimate question for next month....the last weekend of the month technically takes us through to June 2nd...(31st-2nd) so will the readathon land on the weekend before just so that all three days are technically still in May? 3w
TheReadingMermaid It will be the 24th - 26th 3w

Chelseabillups30 @TheReadingMermaid, thank you for the clarification and assistance in helping me plan! 💯💯💯 3w
TheReadingMermaid No problem darling. If you have any other questions just ask! ❤️🤗❤️ 3w
Chelseabillups30 @TheReadingMermaid, I‘ll be sure to connect with you if anything comes up!! 3w
Andrew65 Well done on this outcome. Great to have you join us and gives you your target to beat next time. 👏👏👏 It‘s only the end of April so think your will need to up your Goodreads Reading Challenge. (edited) 3w
Chelseabillups30 @Andrew65, me and my TBR stack agree with you there! I have a feeling it‘s not going to be difficult to sail through those last 6 to get to my 19 total! 3w
Chelseabillups30 @Andrew65, I think I‘m going to take March and April‘s total hours and try to beat whatever that total is for May....ambitious? Yes. Can I rise to the challenge? I think so. 💯 3w
Andrew65 @Chelseabillups30 Good luck, I look forward to seeing your progress in May. 👀 👍😊 (edited) 3w
Chelseabillups30 @Andrew65, that goal puts me at just over 18 hours....6 hours per day...I‘m going to try to make it happen! 3w

I‘m calling it a night for #24b4monday. Adding up all the times I forgot to start the timer, I‘m probably at about and hour more than this, which at least matches my best total ever. Finished 5 books... Halfway through The Overstory and Started The War on Normal People.

TheReadingMermaid You did great sweetie. Next month shoot for a little bit more time and then the next month shoot for a little bit more and soon you'll be hitting 24 hours in no time! 😉👏👏👏 And I completely understand BTW I am the mother of a four-year-old 😵😵 3w
thereadingunicorn @TheReadingMermaid Thank you . This actually means a lot . I am always stressing about being a mom. Thanks for understanding. 3w
Andrew65 @biblecoffeebooks Being a mom is the greatest, but most difficult job in the world - especially a child in the terrible 2s! Given that, that is a great time. I only get to my times because the children have flown the nest. This will come for you too. 👏😊 (edited) 3w

I‘m amazed at how much I was able to fit in with the RV work this weekend. I finished six books, three were audiobooks, and the other print books had already been started. Im about 15% into The Air You Breathe, which is amazing so far. ❤️. I may get a little more in later before bed, but maybe not. Thanks @TheReadingMermaid and @Andrew65 for hosting.

Heads up! We‘re hosting a #NetGalleyReadathon on the second weekend of May! So if you have a ton of #ARC left to read and review, make sure to join in on the fun! And if you‘ve been interested in #NetGalley, but have yet to bite the bullet and join, now is the perfect time! I can‘t wait to spend a weekend reading all the newest books alongside my favourite bookish community ♥️
