The awesome @Andrew65 is hosting a #FabulousFebruary
Readathon. The #JoyousJanuary was great! Since the temperature here hasn‘t been above zero in 7 days and probably won‘t be until some time next week, this is a perfect time for a readathon. My goal is to finish at least 5 library books and my book spin book. Come and join the fun!!!

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck 😊👍 Thanks for reposting 😍 10mo

The Complete Stories | Clarice Lispector
post image

There's something here for everyone, so while I didn't love all 85 of them, I liked enough to call it a pick. I did this on audio so each story has a different narrator than the last (7 people overall) which helped to audibly note the change of story if I zoned out on one or needed to skip through (which only happened a few times). Arranged chronologically, the stories' themes change as Lispecter ages and goes through life. I enjoyed most of ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The First Stories better than later ones, but other standouts were The Smallest Woman in the World, Brasilia, and The Body. The Burned Sinner and the Harmonious Angels was far from my favorite story but I'd be remiss if I didn't note its full cast that sounded like a church hymnal and was entertaining to hear.

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.

Andrew65 Hopefully every one will have fun with this one and feel free to adapt it to suit your circumstances, and set a lower target or higher target as you see fit. Most important to enjoy reading with the many other great Littens on this wonderful site. (edited) 10mo

Great adventures once again, but there's a big secret being hidden by the camp director and it has something to do with time. My favourite is definitely Ripley 🙂

The #joyousjanuary readathon definitely helped me find a few minutes for myself to read, which was so nice amidst the chaos. Finished the tagged book on a walk this morning and got to enjoy this glorious sunrise.
