Hour 8 and I'm multitasking and listening my audiobook. My 9yo has decided to join me, and he's reading the last book in Rick Riordan's Trial of Apollo series. I'm getting restless, which is usual for me at this point in the #readathon, so I'm getting some #springcleaning done and prepping snack plates for later.

PS: It's really quiet in my feed. Where did all my readathoners go? 😢

My second book for #deweyapril, and so far, it's a great read. I'm a huge scifi fan, and this book has it all and then some. There's lots of little details that make me excited for future world-building, and the characters are fascinating. If the first half of the book is any indication, I've found a new series to devour.

Friends, you may not believe this, but it's the last week of March!! Absolutely unreal. Around here, things came in like a lamb & are going out like a lion - snow flurries tomorrow and cold and rainy all next week!

At any rate, if you're interested in playing along with #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin, and/or #BookSpinBingo for April, it's already time to start thinking about your lists!!! With my new 2022 system, I am using the SAME TAG LIST all year⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) so if you are tagged on this post, you already automatically on the tag list for April. If you would like to be ADDED or REMOVED from the tag list, please just let me know!!

Below are the basics of challenge, plus the link the very rambly explanation of the rules of the challenge, plus the link to the Google Form where you can enter your BookSpin & DoubleSpin reads for the end-of-the-year giveaway!!

Can't wait to see your ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) April lists!!!

1/5 - The rules for this challenge can be found by reading my masterpost on my blog (off Litsy) - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/bookspin-bookspinbingo-litsy-challenge - but the basics: if you want to play, make a list of 20 books you've been meaning to read & tag me when you post it!!

2/5 - You do NOT have to participate in the Bingo part of the challenge if that isn't your thing!! You can just read the ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) BookSpin or DoubleSpin or however many books works for you! Basically, choose a reading level that fits your life, and feel free to change it from month to month!!
3/5 - Just a reminder that the rules here are pretty loose!! If you have a huge/challenging book, feel free to let it take up more than one square. Some people struggle with super specific lists & prefer to go with categories (i.e. library book, Netgalley, mystery, from the ⬇

TheAromaofBooks cont'd) living room shelf, etc.), which is also fine! You can make separate lists for BookSpin & DoubleSpin so that you read one book from each. This year, I have a list of challenging books that I am using to read the BookSpin number from each month, but then make a list of my month's TBR to use for the bingo part. Make this challenge work for you!! Just ask if you have questions about whether something is “allowed“ - most of the time the ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) answer is yes!!

4/5 - Remember, if you didn't finish your March BS/DS, you can still check it off at any point in 2022. If you wish to participate in the end-of-the-year giveaway, each completed (or DNF'd) BS/DS read counts as an entry!! This year, everyone is in charge of tracking their OWN ENTRIES for this giveaway!! This is being done via Google Form. You are also welcome to use this form even if you don't want to enter the ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) giveaway, just don't put in your name/address. I won't be looking at these forms until the end of the year, so you can either add your entries throughout the year, or add them in one big batch in December, whatever works best for you!! The form can be found here - https://forms.gle/X57ePKzuHpsqLjE5A - please remember that once you start a form, you need to SAVE THE LINK that Google will email to you so that you can edit your form!! ⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks cont'd) 5/5 - Thank you all SO MUCH for your participation and enthusiasm!!! I LOVE seeing everyone's posts and hearing about how this challenge is helping you tackle the neverending, ever-growing TBR!!! As always, please just ask if you have ANY questions!!! You all are the best!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ 2mo

OriginalCyn620 Time is flying by for sure! 🦋 My April list is almost done! 2mo
keys_on_fire April and October lists are always so different than the other months for me, because I have to factor in my choices for #Deweys24HourReadathon. Lots more quick reads that make it so much easier to get my bingos though!! 🤣🤣 2mo
bookandbedandtea Yikes! I'll get on my #BookSpin #DoubleSpin list! Where I am, March came in like a lamb and is going out as one too. We had some lion in the middle though! 2mo
Elizabeth2 Already?! I didn‘t make very good progress with my March books…I haven‘t even started either of them!! 2mo
i.besteph Wooohoo! 2mo
kellyann28 Thank you for the reminder! I'm basically just checking off my #BookSpin books each month because of life 😂 2mo
claudiuo Incredible how time goes by nowadays! Still trying to finish a couple books, I will have my list ready next week sometime. Thank you! 2mo
IamIamIam Wow, that went fast!!! I bailed on 1 book and never started the other but I'm trying to make use of my Kindle Unlimited trial before I cancel it! Lol... 2mo
Karons1 Hi 👋🏻 everyone ; @TheAromaofBooks thank you for the tag 😃it‘s beautiful and sunny ☀️ and warm here in the uk 🇬🇧 for a change ! I also bailed on book 1 😔I‘m sure the Balkan trilogy‘s are magnificent & I feel bad to bail , but that‘s the way the pages go sometimes , to much war in the news need escapism ! So onto #doublespin book seige and storm , and a new April bingo card 🙌if anyone could advise me where I can download a good editable 2mo
Karons1 Bingo card id be really grateful 😊 happy 😃 reading 📖 2mo
Karons1 @supanovashelley are you gonna play 😍😉 2mo

Megabooks Excited! I‘m already working on my list…of course I bought a bunch of books at dollar tree today too. 🤪🤪 2mo
corireadslife I haven‘t even read my March picks, such a slow reading month for me and hard to get motivated!! Hopefully April will bring renewed book energy 🤓📖 2mo
rabbitprincess Omg wut! I‘ve mostly put together a list but will post at the last minute as usual 🤣 2mo
Bookwormjillk As usual I‘m writing and re-writing mine. 2mo
Clwojick I‘m going to wait a few more days before I post my list! I have lots of plans for April with #ThingsInCommon, but I‘m not sure exactly how it will all play out yet 😅 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @Karons1 - You might try this website for your bingo card - https://myfreebingocards.com/bingo-card-generator - @Clwojick told me where to find it and it's pretty fun!! I usually just print off a blank bingo card and write in my stuff by hand, but I may have to try this site this month!! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @Karons1 - Just as a side note, if you use the website above, you'll just either save your bingo card as a pdf by right click/save image, or screen shot it if you are on a phone/tablet. Otherwise it thinks you want to make legit bingo cards and wants to send you 30 copies lol 2mo
DieAReader Gonna start working on my list this weekend🤓📚 Thanks for the reminder!! 2mo
Librarybelle Hooray!!! 2mo
Bookgoil Wow already?!?! 2mo
Bookzombie March is flying by! I haven‘t started on my list yet, but I‘m pondering a list for BS/DS and then a second list, including my BS/DS for bingo. Kind of like you are doing. 🙂 2mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm in. Have a few books selected for my list already. 2mo
ImperfectCJ I'm pretty sure I'm going to sit out April. We have some big, unexpected changes coming up this month, and I suspect that won't leave me much time for reading. Hopefully the dust will have started to settle by May. 🤞 2mo
bthegood I'm in and I've made my list already - thank you for hosting. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @Bookzombie - The two list system has been working so well for me!! I've been using the BS/DS list to check off some old classics - one a month is just about right - and then my second list of all the books I'm hoping to read for the month for the bingo part. It's fun to play around with challenges and make them work for you!! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @ImperfectCJ - Hopefully things calm down soon!! Would you like me to take you off the tag list until you ask to be put back on, or do you want to stay on the list? It's whatever works best for you!! 2mo
dgingo @TheAromaofBooks Thank you so much for the tag and for hosting! I haven‘t been able to do one yet this year, but I am this month—I‘m making my list today! Thank you so much for the reminder and for being so on top of things! 💕📚📖 2mo
ImperfectCJ @TheAromaofBooks Please keep me on the list. Hopefully this is just a one-month break! 2mo

I managed only 6.5 hours for #Deweys24HourReadathon but enjoyed the chance to interact with the Dewey's community!

Finished this enjoyable collection of short stories, featuring 2 Lord Peter Wimsey stories, 5 Montague Egg ones and 10 others. 17x15 points for #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 7mo

It‘s a warp! #Deweys24HourReadathon is officially over. Had blast catching up on some reading.

post image

I got up early this morning to fit in a bit more time for the #readathon and finish Romeo & Juliet along with making breakfast. I don‘t think I‘ve reread the play itself since high school, and I did appreciate it more than I did then and more than several other plays that I‘ve read since.

Sandman | Neil Gaiman

Hour 17. Normally, my #deweys24hourreadathon has ended by now (I have Bipolar Disorder, and sleep is essential to my remission), but I discussed it with my doctor and got the go-ahead to try to reading all night. There are some rules, like no caffeine or sugar, and I have to focus on reading - no multitasking. Luckily, "The Sandman: Act II" is taking up all my attention.
