Got my prize for finishing the library summer reading program! There were a bunch of fast food coupons that won‘t get used because we don‘t eat fast food (ChickFilA is the exception, which is weird because I‘m an atheist vegetarian...) but I love the tote. I‘ve seen a lot of praise for the book, so I chose that for my ARC. Hope it‘s good!

Zelma Wow, you were quick! We‘re not letting anyone turn in their logs for another week or so. 1w
ravenlee @Zelma this is the first time I‘ve used the app, and wasn‘t really paying attention. More like getting the hang of it, and then all of a sudden I was done! The first weekend happened to coincide with #24B4Monday readathon, so that definitely helped me. And I honestly think I‘ve severely underreported the kiddo‘s reading, too! 1w
Crazeedi I just put this book on my tbr list, interested to hear what you think! 1w
ravenlee @Crazeedi I have no idea when I‘ll get to it, but I‘ll be sure to post when I finally do! 1w
Crazeedi @ravenlee oh I understand! Many of my books stare at me unread!! 1w

I didn‘t get to post my #24B4monday #readathon wrap-up. Finished: MirrorMask
Progress: Bibliophile (now finished)
Started: The Weed That Strings The Hangman‘s Bag
I think I got about 5 to 6 hours total reading time. I‘m loving the end of month reading wrap-up-a-thon!

Andrew65 Well done, a very healthy total. 👏 Thanks for playing along and we look forward to seeing you next month. 👍😊 2w
Clwojick Way to go! 🙌🏻🤩👌🏻 2w

Who can resist this face??? 😍 Even though I already ran/walked and hiked for 2 hours (with this pup along for the latter) today, when this pupper begs for his 7:30 pm walk, you have to get out there for at least 20 minutes. Now at 21,300 steps for the day, and ready for a relaxing bath!

#24B4Monday @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid
@Clwojick @RadicalReader

I'm a little late checking in but here is my total for this Memorial Day weekend readathon. I forgot to stop my stop watch app last night so subtract 9 hours from the total. The grand total is just a little short of 15 hours. I read two books so I am happy.

Andrew65 That‘s a fantastic total, well done. 👏👏👏🙌😍 Thanks for playing along. 3w
Clwojick Way to go! 15 hours is a fantastic total time. ♥️🥳💖 3w
RealBooks4ever Good going! ⌚💜 3w

Finished 4 books, started 2 others.
#bannedbooks: Slaughterhouse-Five (I didn‘t get In Cold Blood this weekend after all.)
#audiobooks: Cross Gardener, Slaughterhouse-Five, Rich Dad Poor Dad

bewareofwords @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @Clwojick Thank you so much, friends! 🥰 3w
rubyblueontuesday How is When Breath Becomes Air? It's on my want-to-reads list. 2w
bewareofwords @rubyblueontuesday I thought it was amazing! I definitely recommend it. The story is heartbreaking but interesting, and the writing style is really beautiful. He‘s very intellectual so he got caught up in philosophy sometimes, but the book is short enough that it doesn‘t get too bogged down. 2w

Only got a little less than 14 hours reading time for #24B4Monday this month, but I‘m happy about what I‘ve read and love everyone of them! Still listening to The Trauma Cleaner & I might switch to audio book for Clockmaker‘s Daughter, hope that can help with my progress 🤗 Wish me luck! 🙌🏼 Looking forward to next month‘s #redathon

Andrew65 14 hours is a great achievement. Well done. 🙌🙌🙌😊 I struggled to get through The Clockmaker‘s Daughter too. 3w
BooknerdsLife @Andrew65 Thank you so much 😘💖 Really like doing this bookathon with everyone here🤗🥰 And I Am So Happy to know I‘m not the only struggling with The Clockmaker‘s Daughter!! *phew* I mean the writing is beautiful & I like it a lot, but the slow pace & change of POV is not helping :( 3w
Andrew65 @BooknerdsLife Agree totally, I always felt I should be enjoying this but wasn‘t. Hard to keep tabs on what was going on. I love doing the Readathons too. 😊 3w

My son: You should drink more water. I fixed you some.


Today is a strange day. I feel hung over. No idea why. So, I'm extending the #readathon 😁😁😁
