KVanRead Yes!! Definitely a #Spankle. I am loving the mental image I‘m getting of that other Michael Jackson in a blue velveteen waistcoat. Thanks for that.😀 2y

“It surely is a strange fact,” he considers, “that in the heart of a civilized world this creature in human form should be more difficult to dispose of than an unowned dog.” 😢

It‘s Thanksgiving here and I am not sure about my gravy this year as the 🦃 didn‘t come with it‘s gravy packet this year. So it is totally up to me! #BleakHousebuddyread. This was where my reading started today. LOL

I have to admit, I had to switch to the audio version to get through this week‘s section of the #BleakHouseBuddyRead, but I will admit this free version on Hoopla has pretty great narration.

Lynnsoprano I read Bleak House, and it is probably my favorite Dickens. 2y
Gezemice I only read Great Expectations and it was engaging in parts, and other parts were just tedious. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Exactly why I switched to the audio....the section for this week‘s read with the group I‘m reading with was a bunch of ancillary characters meeting briefly and either passing a clue on or not, with lots of wordiness surrounding that bit of important stuff. I read Great Expectations in school and remember it being the same. (edited) 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice By the way, so glad to see you back! 2y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thank you! I am reading again. :) Nice to be back! 🤗 2y

My first month of my new (coloring book) Book Journal with multiple read alongs I was keeping track of...and it‘s finished! And even more exciting for me, all on track except 1, I have to carry over Rest in Power (again). I‘ll try to put a push on that one and finish it out yet this month (I have a few days left) and I really need to stop dragging my feet with that sad, but necessary, read. Plus look for pens that don‘t bleed through the pages.😂

Riveted_Reader_Melissa #LOTRChapterADay #TheNixBuddyRead #LWReadAlong #BlindAssassinBuddyRead #BleakHouseBuddyRead and the #LitsyFeministBookClub AND for the second half of the month joining up with #HPChapterADay. (Thank goodness it was Bombadil poems and short stories for HP for most of the month!😉) 2y
Gezemice This is so beautiful! So cool. I did not know there was a Blind Assassin buddy read, but I read it earlier this year and it totally floored me. I think I need to read it again. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Yes! I was a total fail at bullet journaling and craftiness, but I can color in the pre-printed pictures. Hopefully I‘ll keep up with this better too. 😉😂 2y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I have a bullet-journal of sorts, although it is merely an adoption of some of the organization on a messy notebook (like page numbers and an index). I write in it occasionally... I would not say it was a resounding success. I hope you will keep yours up, I love the colors and patterns! 2y

And with only about 5 hours in today (really 2 groups of unexpected company on the same day that I want to read, really, what were the chances of that?) anyway, I digress....at least I managed to get my few stragglers up to date for the week during this #Readathon!

TheBookbabeblog84 Actually I think I may give your method a shot for my reading. This may help me keep track lol... 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TheBookbabeblog84 It‘s just my list of read alongs I joined this month and what I should be reading for each, each week. It does seem to be working though, and keeping me on track. 2y

A little over two hours in for me and I‘ve caught up my Bleak House reading for this week!
