Started two books for the #20in4 Readathon, although physical reading was limited due to the tiredness for the medication i have just started for my Crohns, so had to rely on more audio reading.

Read 317 pages in 5 hrs 57 mins.

HOORAY! A weekend of reading! I haven‘t been on Litsy for a bit and stumbled on the Readathon. It‘s a sign from the Universe. A balm for the soul.

Sending all you lovely Littens peace and love!

Thank you, @Andrew65 🎉🎉🎉

Starting #20in4 with remarkably low goals: read 200 pages. Of anything. Hubby is home for the duration, I‘m planning an epic cooking day Sunday or Monday, kiddo has a music lesson today and I‘m teaching one tomorrow…but we‘re also blazing toward the end of HP and the Deathly Hallows, which will help. Happy reading, all y‘all! @Andrew65

Andrew65 Good luck, great to have you playing along. 😊 2d

I forgot to update yesterday. I didn‘t read anymore poetry (my head is stuck in the BDB), but I started King John, got to 3 more BDB books, and I‘ve gotten closer to caught up on Clanlands, so that‘s at least better than it was.

#MarvellousMay readathon has officially helped me break my book slump! I read all my library books except for one that isn't due until next week and A Magic Steeped in Poison I've decided to return for now since I just couldn't get into the story. Reviews will be forthcoming but I hit on a few five star reads, which really helped me plow through some books ☺️
Thanks @Andrew65 as ever for hosting these wonderful events!

Joining this a bit late but I could use a #readathon to help me out of this reading slump I've been in! 😞 I've started so many books but can't seem to finish any lately.
I have no less than SIX physical books that are due back at the library within the next week that I'd like to finish. I always gravitate to my kindle so I'd like to focus on those instead this week.
Thanks @Andrew65 for hosting! #MarvellousMay

Hi everyone👋I‘m gonna once again attempt to actually finish a book during a readathon. Went to the docs today & officially have post-covid syndrome, so no guarantees on completing goals, but I‘m gonna give it a red hot go! My goals are:
📚Read a damn book!😠
⏱Read for more than 15minutes🙄
🫥Get my reading mojo back before my mind packs it in. Please?🙏
Good luck everyone!

Bookwormjillk Oh no! Good luck 🍀 2w
Andrew65 Best of luck with the Readathon, and sorry to hear about the post COvID situation, still dealing with similar things myself. 2w
Lizpixie @Andrew65 Thanks lovely. It‘s bloody awful isn‘t it? I‘m really struggling with memory & concentration problems on top of the pain & fatigue. Not sure which is worse honestly. My 32yr old daughter has had covid 3 times & just had a minor heart attack due to Myocarditis due to this horrible disease plus they found a bleed in her brain. It‘s the gift that keeps on giving. Hope you & your wife start feeling better soon🤞 2w

Andrew65 @EadieB Yes we came away on Tuesday for four weeks, had planned longer but my wife needs a follow up blood test following some anomalous readings on the last blood test for kidney function. Had appointment at the clinic on Monday where confirmed it is Crohn‘s disease from the biopsies, so blood tests to assess whether I can be given the drug for Crohn‘s. Still having pains in bowels and 5 weeks into the steroids programme (7 more to go). (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 My wife has a telephone appointment next Friday re Kidney results, not exactly rushing it so hoping nothing major. Had a second booster last week due to my more vulnerable COvID status due to medication. Chose perfect time to leave the school environment. 1mo

Friday sees the start of the May Day Special #20in4 Readathon.

What better way to round off April‘s reading & make a great start on May‘s reading. Either aim to read 20 chapters, 20 hours or any other number you want to set yourself, or even set your own goal which fits in with your plans over this weekend.

Hope May will herald a better month than April for me and everyone else. April has been ‘interesting‘ and struggled to read consistently.

See All 60 Comments
MaGoose I'll join in. I haven't read consistently during April, either. I need to get back into it during May. I have a stack of books that's about to topple over that I promised to read and review on my blog. I'll be starting out with Solomon's Concubine by S. A. Jewell. And try to finish Book Collecting Now: The Value of Print in a Digital Age by Matthew Budman. 1mo
Andrew65 @MaGoose It‘ll be great to have you with us. Hopefully May will be a better reading month for us both. 1mo
Bookwormjillk Hope you‘re feeling better @Andrew65 April was slow for me too. I‘m in for this weekend. My work book club has committed to reading an entire book between Saturday and Sunday. Before that though I need to finish my #LMPBC book. My goal is 20 hours! 1mo
Lizpixie I‘ll give it a go. April has been my worst reading month in years, pretty much since I joined Litsy! Bloody brain fog from bloody covid. I think the aftermath is worse than the actual onset, in my experience anyway😵‍💫 1mo
Andrew65 @Lizpixie Think April has been my worst reading month for a long time, along with when I had COvID last September. Found it took me a good six months to get fully over COvID. Had to rely on a lot of audiobooks at the time. Take it slowly and carefully, improvements do come. 1mo
Andrew65 @Bookwormjillk Thanks had to deal with a lot in April, leaving my job and profession (and semi-retiring), my now confirmed Crohn‘s Disease diagnosis and going on steroids, and a bad sinus infection which at times made it very painful to even move my head. Good luck with the Readathon. 1mo
BarkingMadRun I‘m definitely in, but I‘ll have to think about my goals. I‘m doing a peloton challenge on the weekend that will take up about 8 hours! 1mo
jenniferw88 @Andrew65 I'm put on steroids when my crohn's flares up - be careful as when I have them it affects my blood sugars. I'm diabetic so it's a bit of a vicious circle for me! 1mo
TheBookHippie My entire family and extended family have had influenza I‘ve so far escaped if!!! I was just officially diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, am now at school 8-12 only and I agree with @jenniferw88 steroids make my blood sugar climb as well as put extra weight on me. I hope with diagnosis you get the care you need. Wishing you well! I‘ll be catching up all weekend! So behind in my reading!!!! 1mo
CocoReads M in although I have tons of things happening this weekend. But I‘ve struggled to read this month. The ups and downs of the bipolar weather have sent my sinuses into overdrive resulting in near constant headaches, the dr cut my diabetes meds in half to help my gut issues but it‘s made it harder to control my sugar so it‘s been rough. 1mo
Librarybelle Wishing you a much better May! 1mo
Elizabeth2 I‘m so relieved that you‘re feeling better. Hopefully, that trend continues! I‘m away with girlfriends this weekend, so my reading time will be limited. But, I‘m looking forward to getting away for a couple of days! 1mo
julesG Glad you're feeling better. I'm definitely in. 1mo
Cinfhen Can‘t believe it‘s May!! I‘m sorry to hear you‘re dealing with health issues 😔 1mo
OriginalCyn620 I‘m in! I hope May is a better month for you! 💕 1mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm in! Sounds like April was a bust all around. I want to finish 2 in progress to close out the month with a mere 7 books read. It's baseball season & the Mets have actually been fun to watch. Work is getting busier, which is a good problem to have, but longer days mean less reading. I may begin today since I lose time on the weekends. I'm glad you're diagnosed so you can get on with managing your symptoms. Wishing everyone a better May 1mo
ravenlee I‘m in for however much I can manage. The past six weeks have been really busy, along with everybody needing something from me all the time! It‘s felt like every time I sit down with a book recently, I get a couple paragraphs in, and then somebody absolutely positively needs me to do/get something right that minute! Makes it hard to get anywhere. 1mo
AmyG I hope May is a better month for you. I am going to pass on this weeked. I am getting my covid booster shot and will probably feel crappy all weeknd. 1mo
PageShifter I'll join. I got covid two weeks ago and even though it wasn't that bad for me but it still makes me so tired. Let's do this ✌️ 1mo
Andrew65 @BarkingMadRun Good luck with the Peloton Challenge.😊 (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @jenniferw88 Thanks for that warning. Had one month at highest dose, now on month 2 of a three month programme at a reduced rate (9 mg last month 6 mg this month). Currently being assessed for a drug for the Crohn‘s. The steroids do seem to have increased my blood pressure. 1mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie I can relate to being behind with the reading. Hope you are getting the support you need for the Rheumatoid Arthritis and keep away from that flu! Thanks 😊 1mo
Andrew65 @CocoReads Can thoroughly sympathise at the moment. Had a really bad bout of headaches linked to sinuses, as has my wife. Hope things improve for you. 😊 (edited) 1mo
jenniferw88 @Andrew65 you're not on such a high dose as when I'm put on them (30mg for week 1, then reduce by 5 each week), so 🤞 it shouldn't be such a problem for you. 1mo
Andrew65 @jenniferw88 That is a much higher dosage. I hope you are doing okay at the moment. Very much all new to me at the moment. 1mo

Andrew65 @ravenlee Sounds very hectic, hope things calm down for you and you manage to get some reading in.😊 (edited) 1mo
jenniferw88 @Andrew65 I'm currently ok thanks - I think we've finally found a treatment that works for me, though it's very expensive for the NHS! 😂 I only have steroids when my crohn's flares up so not on them at the moment. 1mo
Andrew65 @jenniferw88 We certainly pay enough for the NHS so right they should be financing this. 1mo
Andrew65 @AmyG Good luck with the booster, I definitely felt crappy for 24 hours after mine last week. Fingers crossed for May. 😊 1mo
Andrew65 @PageShifter Take things easy, COvID definitely has a long term effect and can take a long while to fully recover from. Good luck with the Readathon. 😊 (edited) 1mo

jenniferw88 @Andrew65 due to my ❤ transplant I was already using a lot of the NHS's money due to the anti-rejection drugs I take. And it's those same drugs that have given me Crohn's - they're one of the usual treatments for it! 😂😡 1mo

Didn‘t quite manage to lap myself on my goal for #AwesomeApril but I came close. I thought my original 1000 pages was going to be tight so 1800+ was quite the surprise!

Had really bad headaches the last three days and also had to clear out my office at work so only managed 231 pages reading over the last three days for #AwesomeApril, and only 60 pages over the last 2 days. Headaches eased a bit today, but still in the background and hurts to cough so still limiting my reading.

Altogether :

1624 / 2400 pages read

3 / 6 books finished.

Soubhiville Yikes, hope you‘re feeling better soon. 1mo
TheBookHippie (((((Hugs)))))) Hoping the new transition goes smoothly and benefits your health greatly. 1mo

Andrew65 @TheSpineView @Bookwormjillk @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks everyone, headaches a bit worse again today. Think body is fighting back after release of stress from job, hopefully things settle soon. Also wondering if reaction to steroids having to take for my Crohn‘s Disease, although started 2 1/2 weeks into the pills. (edited) 1mo
Dragon Take care of yourself- stay hydrated and I hope you feel better soon 💐 1mo
Andrew65 @Dragon Thanks 💕 1mo
Elizabeth2 I‘m so sorry you‘ve had headaches. I‘ve suffered from migraines in the past and they can be debilitating. I hope you‘re feeling better soon. Take care, stay hydrated, watch your caffeine intake and rest when needed. Cool compress on the back of the neck and over the eyes sometimes helps me. ❤️ 1mo
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Thanks for your advice. I‘ve got an optician appointment on Monday to see if that could be causing it, as well as possibly the new medication I‘m on. When I cough like a little explosion going off in my head! If no better may have to go to the doctors. 1mo

Well, I blew past that goal… Apparently, I underestimated how quickly I‘d plow through a couple of the books on my TBR. With so much of #AwesomeApril still remaining, I might try to lap myself and get in 2000 pages.
