I turned the heel on a sock while I listened to WHAT ALES THE EARL. I‘ve gotta finish the book today so I‘m ready to start a queer audiobook for Gay May, which means I‘ve spent my Readathon scrounging around for audio-friendly activities. One more listening session should do the trick. #audioknitting #readathon #deweyapril

Can you believe we‘re almost at Hour 4 for Dewey‘s 24-Hour Readathon? The day goes by pretty quick when you‘ve got a stack of books to tackle.

How‘re you all doing so far? I‘m 40% into my with-eyeballs book and 23% into my audiobook, and I‘m about to dive into a comic. —@xicanti

Great escapism read. The story moved along quickly and the characters were entertaining. I‘m hoping there‘ll be sequels that tell what happens to some of the secondary characters. 4/5 #romance #novemberreads

I won this in a giveaway! One of my favorite tropes is a secret baby and there‘s not many historicals that have that trope.

I might have picked up some #romantsy books when I shopped for the kid‘s class books. My purchases went towards the school book fair total so how could I not get something? Am I right or am I right? 😉

AutumnRLS The Wilde series is fantastic. I love everything she's written and I don't even read that much romance! Have fun! 4y
Linear It took me way to long to figure out what she was holding in her hand that was coming from his neck lol 4y
