Repost for @Andrew65

This weekend sees the second monthly #20in4 Readathon (the replacement for the #24B4Monday Readathon).

The aim is to try to read for 20 hours over the four days, or you can set your own time target, or even set a different goal for yourself over the four days. Be great to have you joining us even if it‘s your first ever Readathon. It‘s very informal just come and join us and have fun reading and sharing your progress.

I noticed on GR that I rd bk1 of series in 2012 so #24B4Monday seemed a gr8 reason to read a page turner & it certainly was that as montaldo faces 2 threads, a supermarket robbery +gun smuggling, as well as 2 bodies which hark back to ww2 in a curious burial rite. Plus a gangster on the run handing himself over to the inspector. He is a great character but the description of food + drink had me yearning for a glass of red in a sea front cafe.

Cathythoughts A glass of red in a seafront cafe sounds 👌🏻 great jigsaw 1y
Tanisha_A @Cathythoughts Oh that would be perfect, Cathy! 🍷 1y

Um ... so I accidentally just inhaled all of this. So addictive! And it gave me so many feels!!! I loved the format — third-person, transcripts, texts — specifically the two podcasters‘ banter. They had me cracking up! All of these characters felt real. Very satisfying ending. Would definitely recommend! 💕

Thus ends my #20in4 with 17.5 hours. So close! Thanks @Andrew65 for hosting!! I needed a replacement for #24b4monday.

Andrew65 That‘s fantastic 👏👏👏🙌🍾🥂🍾🥂🎉🥳 Thanks for playing along. Glad you enjoyed the replacement. 1y

#24B4Monday @Andrew65

I finished my horror book, The Only Good Indians. I started Queenie for #SundayBuddyRead. And for #AuthoraMonth I managed to read a good half of the tagged book. So I did what I set out to do! 👍🏻

Andrew65 That‘s fantastic 👏👏👏🙌🍾🥂🍾🥂🎉🥳 Thanks for playing along. 1y

My current read for #24B4Monday I am loving the Audiobook so far, it's great and has a podcast as part of the story. So that makes it really interesting for me.

Also: @NeedsMoreBooks and I are gearing up for Second Season of Reading Squad! We are very excited to share all of our reads with you again! Look forward to the first episode in February!

#24B4Monday
In honour of @Andrew65 who i think ranks this series very highly i at long last am starting book 2 after many years. I think it may be because I'm never keen on two books in volume 1.
I am 4 hours 45 mins into the challenge and just finished my last bk which I will post about later.

Cathythoughts Go Andrew 🥳wooohooo 1y
Andrew65 Great series and only gets better as you get to know the characters and Montalbano‘s quirky character. Know @crazeedi loves it too. A good start 👏👏👏 1y
Crazeedi @andrew61 you will enjoy it more and more! If you can find the audiobooks, I definitely recommend, I listened to a bunch on audio and the reader was excellent! All the characters quirks were enhanced 1y
Crazeedi @Andrew65 you know my all time fave series!! 1y

Today I am launching a new monthly 4 day Readathon to replace #24B4Monday, as Sumisbooks has left Litsy and #24B4Monday was her creation.
The new monthly Readathon is #20in4, with the aim to read 20 hours in four days. We all had great fun with #24B4Monday, thanks Sumisbooks and I hope everyone will enjoy this new Readathon event. It will run over a Friday-Monday in the second half of each month.
The first will run Fri 29th Jan to Mon 1st Feb.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks REPOST FOR THE AMAZING @Andrew6 🎊📚🎉📚🎊 1y
Andrew65 Thanks for reposting 🥰 Hope you are okay. 1y

#24B4Monday @Andrew65
I've never tried a readathon before but I think I'll have a go this weekend although not sure I'll make as I only managed 35 mins at lunchtime but with a glass of red wine tonight who knows.
Incidentally this bks been in a pile for a while × I'd forgotten how good lehane is. set in 1918 Boston the history is fascinating touching on the US communists, unions, st louis massacre, race,anarchists et al. Must rd more abt the era

Cathythoughts Good luck Andrew ! I‘d say that glass of wine tonight will be just the job 👍🏻🍷 1y
Cathythoughts I‘ve never tried one either... I‘d have to clear the decks first ... one day 👍🏻 1y
andrew61 @Cathythoughts I think there is no possibility of me reading for that amount of time Cathy and im not a fan of reading under pressure but I'll see. To be honest I'll be asleep by 9 tonight as soon as take that first glass 😂 1y

Cathythoughts Stop 😂you ... and me too. Asleep by 9 after the glass ... I find I‘m busier in Covid times that before... the day is over before it starts ... It‘s non stop 1y
Andrew65 Great to have you with us. Any time you get to is great, no reason to feel any pressure. Just read as normal whatever time you get to. All very low key, just enjoy reading with others. (edited) 1y
Andrew65 @Cathythoughts Love to have you join us whenever. 😊 1y
Cathythoughts @Andrew65 Thanks! As soon as I get organized enough 😊 1y
