Late with publicising the Readathon this month as been a very tumultuous week that left me reeling in many ways as I announced to my school staff, families and governors that I would be leaving at Easter. 🎢

So you can either do the Readathon from 26th - 29th as it would usually be, or from 27th - 30th, or if you really want you can use all five days - I will be.

Join us, have fun reading together, with whatever goal you want.

MaGoose I'm in for all the days, I guess. Have a kinda fat book I need to read and do a review on my website blog. I'll be reading Finding Napoleon by Margaret Rodenberg. A romance more than a mystery, so a little bit out of my normal reading groove. About 30 pages into it and like it very much so far. 😍 4h

Elizabeth2 Sorry your week has been tough! You‘re doing what you need to - keep your mind focused on that and the reasons you made the decision you did. Everything will fall into place. ❤️ Thanks for the tag! I haven‘t picked up my nook yet today, and reading will be limited for me tomorrow. I‘ll have to come up with some light goals for this one! ❤️📚 3h

Total hours reading is 23:07 and yesterday I read for 4.5 hours. I decided to bail on Sword and Pen. I can't seem to get back into this series. Just has not held my interest. I started Mickey7 and will start something else today.

Update

Unnatural Causes is fascinating, but probably not for everyone

Stella und der Mondscheinvogel 🇩🇪 🎧ARC - I read the original before: The Clockwork Crow

Witness X 🇩🇪🎧 ARC - I like the story, but I don't like the narrator

Here are my plans for the #NovelNovember readathon! @Andrew65

Finish the last story in A Lot Like Christmas.

Read these books:
- The Madness of Crowds
- The Starless Sea
- The Parable of the Sower (graphic novel)
- The Wasp Factory
- The Dragon Republic

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck 😊👍 2w
Kenyazero Great selections for the week! The Starless Sea is really narration heavy, which I've seen people say feels tough to get through, so if it feels like a slog I recommend switching to the audiobook. The narration is beautiful and the story is fun to puzzle together. 2w
kwmg40 @Andrew65 Thank you!

@Kenyazero Thanks for the advice about the audiobook. I'm going to see if my library has it. Our work book club is reading it, so I have some motivation to get through it this week!

Kenyazero @kwmg40 oh that's cool that your work book group is reading it. How fun! 2w

Today is the start of the #NovelNovember #Readathon which I definitely need to so I can catch up on my reading this month! I‘ve been helping with bub so much that reading has been an afterthought. My goals are:
📚Read 3 books
⏱Read for 40hrs
🎧Read at least 2 different formats

I‘ve just about finished my first book, it‘s already 2.30pm Saturday here, but remembered I hadn‘t posted my goals yet. Who else is joining in this weekend?

Lizpixie Also add these goals to the #AnyWayYouReadathon & the #33by33 #readathon which are both happening this weekend as well. Both of which I completely forgot about! 2w

TheAromaofBooks It's so weird how our bodies interconnect different things, so being sick in one way can make other (seemingly unrelated) things worse! I'm so glad that you are both feeling better, though, and hopefully lots of rest will keep you going the right direction!! ❤ 1mo
Andrew65 @TheAromaofBooks We‘ve come away for the half-term holiday this week so hopefully that will help. Even the drive, which we do regularly shows how it has affected us, we had to do the drive in shorter stints before getting tired. 1mo

End of Day 8 of #OutstandingOctober Readathon.

I finished another book yesterday, The Hundreth Man. This takes me to 8 books finished out of a target of 5. Would like to get one more book finished and will be heading to Lucas Dabemport territory with this one, and starting Secret Prey.

Mollyanna Wow! Nicely done. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🥳🥳🥳 1mo
Andrew65 @Mollyanna Thanks 😍 1mo

End of Day 7 of #OutstandingOctober

1 book finished bringing the total up to 7 books finished and therefore 7/5 books finished.

Can I get 9 finished before the end of the Readathon?

DieAReader @Andrew65 😏You can do anything you set your mind to😉 Besides, isn‘t it still “early” (for us bookish ones) for a Saturday night (12:30am ish🧐)!! (edited) 1mo
