From a not so great start to one of my best ever #20in4 #ReadAThons to date.

At 18h56m I only need to read 1h04m tomorrow so I'm challenging myself to do 24h 🤩
Let's see what happens.

Day 2 results for the #20in4 readathon hosted by the fabulous @Andrew65

Surprised that I managed to get in 2.5 hours of reading despite the grandkids being here. Most of that was in the morning before they got up. Then a little after they went to bed.

Andrew65 A great time, especially with the visit. 👏👏👏 1d

A slighter better day but reading still being affected by my sinus issues and lack of sleep due to it. On Day 2 Finished Dead Lost and read 175 pages in 3 hrs 2 minutes.

Overall 1 book finished, and 305 pages read in 5 hrs 14 mins.

#BigJuneReadathon 20 books read and 6871 pages read. @Clwojick

It was nice catching up, but today I need to catch up on the missed reading time.

It's hard to believe we're almost at the end of June, time is flying by so fast. These are the books I plan to read for the #20in4 readathon. No specific goals except to finish The Accident President, that I've been reading since May.
Good luck to everyone who's joining in.

I‘m pretty happy with my #JoysofJuneReadathon results. I didn‘t set pages or reading time goals & I‘m too lazy to go do the math on Beanstack 😉but I did most of what I wanted to do: finished or started & finished the top row of books including one unplanned, kept up with my 2 current #buddyreads on the left & started the 2 books on the right-about 60% through Unlikely Animals (💙it so far) & 15% through My Good Fellow (My Fair Lady retelling).

I had two goals and came close on both. First, I wanted to read for 30 hours. I am short by 2.25 hours. Also wanted to read at least two books. I read one, am 80% complete on a second. Two other books started and both about 25% complete. So close.... 🙃🌞🤩💜📚📖

I'm not sure how to approach this month's readathon. My reading is definitely off pace, due to the stresses of looking for a new job and dealing with my current job's closing. I'll keep the goals simple:
Finish The Accidental President
Finish Ancillary Justice
Start and finish Enola Holmes & the Black Barouche
Start 2 new books
Read 5 chapters a day.

Good luck to everyone who's joining in. #JoysofJune @Andrew65

A little over a week into the #bigjunereadathon and I have already read more than I read in May by 5 hours. Still feeling tired from chemo and surgery recovery (a lot chemicals were pumped into my body between the chemo drugs and the anesthesia that I was given for my surgery in April), but I am gradually recovering. Cancer truly sucks.
