I fell far short of the goal, but finished two books. Gone So Long is an amazing book! 5⭐️ I am so glad I finally finished it. #readathon. #24b4Monday #nexttime

Andrew65 That‘s still a great achievement, well done! 👍😊 13mo
TheReadingMermaid You did great sweetie!!! I know next time you'll do even better 😉 13mo
Redwritinghood He‘s coming to my local library soon! I haven‘t read any of his books, though. Sounds like I should. 13mo
Samplergal @Redwritinghood oh yes! This is, imho, even better than 13mo

This book currently has a 0% approval rating on Litsy. 😯 So I might be looking at a quick bail. #tob.

Beckys_Books Good luck 13mo
vivastory I hope you made it home safely! 13mo
merelybookish @vivastory Hey Scott! I've been meaning to message you. Sorry I didn't get in touch. Originally I thought I'd be in KC on Tuesday but we went Thurs and came back yesterday, so a pretty fast trip. I still hope we can coordinate a get together! Has the snow started there? 13mo

merelybookish @Beckys_Books Thanks! The upside is I can bail quickly if need be and without much guilt. 13mo
vivastory It started a couple of hours ago. No problem! My holiday shifted around a bit too, so today has actually really been the first day I haven't spent with family since Thursday. I don't know if you are thinking of visiting around Xmas, but I'm hoping to take off for a week. 13mo
merelybookish @vivastory We are going to BC for Xmas but I did talk with my friends about a January visit to KC. If that happens, I'll let you know. I do get there a few times a year. I'm sure we can figure something out eventually! 🙂 13mo
vivastory Sounds good! Hopefully the book is not too bad! 13mo
Cinfhen Awww, too bad the coffee date didn‘t happen @vivastory @merelybookish #NextTime 13mo
merelybookish @Cinfhen We're waiting till you can join us! 😉 13mo
Cinfhen Hmmmm, Kansas is a little bit out of my stomping grounds but you never know😁 How‘s the book?? Did u bail?? 13mo
merelybookish @Cinfhen Not yet, although it is frustrating. But I'm curious to see where it goes. The style is really weird, almost like it was written 100 years ago. 13mo

Leftcoastzen Their website is amazing. 1y
Velvetfur Wow! How gorgeous! I didn't stumble across that when I went there 2 years ago for my 40th, but I hope it's still there in another 2 years when I'll be going there for my sister's 40th! 1y
DivineDiana @Faibka @rather_be_reading I thought so too! Particularly the life size Oscar sitting on the bench! 1y
DivineDiana @Leftcoastzen You‘re right! I checked out the Website! Thank you! 1y
DivineDiana @Velvetfur That‘s the beauty of NYC! You never know what‘s around the next corner! 🙂 1y

I failed this #24in48 challenge. I've logged about 4 hours. Which is probably more than I would've done. I turned on the audiobook to fold instead of Netflix, so that's a win.

I'm not sure how to choose my actual bookends. My grandmother was moving and needed someone to take a Civil War era secretary desk off her hands. My husband was balking. So I had to make it appealing to him. I seem to arrange by covers.

KathyWheeler I failed as well — got about 5 hours in. 1y
WhatThePuck @KathyWheeler it was my first challenge. Lol. It wasn't a good weekend to try. If it weren't for these meddling kids.. 1y
KathyWheeler @WhatThePuck 😄 It wasn‘t a good weekend for me to try it either. 1y

Whimsical.Curiosity But look at those ends, hubba hubba 🤣 1y
5280reader No failing in trying! Heck I didn‘t even sign up. You just didn‘t get 24in48 YET. Yet implies future possibilities 😀👍 1y
WhatThePuck @Whimsical.Curiosity I'm so excited. My husband told me to send him pics of bookshelves I like. He's going to build me one for the half wall we have in our living room. After 10 pictures I was told to "settle down."?? 1y
RebL No failures! It‘s a “challenge” for a reason. (In the next Litsy update, when we can like comments, I‘m going to like @5280reader‘s.) (edited) 1y
WhatThePuck @5280reader @RebL thanks! I am going to keep trying! 1y
bels_books No worries on not making it. You turned on audio instead of Netflix. I definitely didn‘t do that this weekend. 😂 1y
WhatThePuck @bels_books yeah, it definitely made me celebrate the little victories! I usually clean the kitchen listening to my audiobooks, but usually do laundry and Netflix. I have 2 huge file cabinets waiting for the shredder at work tomorrow. That should help me listen to the last hour I have left in this section of my book. 1y
sailu112 What is 24in48challenge? I keep seeing it but I am unable to comprehend this challenge. I am new come on Litsy, so apologize for my ignorance.. 1y
WhatThePuck @sailu112 it was a challenge to read for 24 hours in 48. Welcome to Litsy!! Follow this @24in48 and it should help explain! 1y
sailu112 @WhatThePuck thanks for explaining it :) 1y

#bookmail, leftover print galleys from ALA. #alaleftbehind

saresmoore I'm interested in both of these books! And two great covers. 2y
Lola Wait...I missed both you AND the new CD galley at ALA??!! 😩Ah....I get it...I missed the galley but you weren't there. THAT would have really been a bummer #nexttime (edited) 2y

ReadingEnvy @Lola my boss doesn't like to pay to send me to ala seeing it as not relevant somehow but I'm hoping next year to be on a librarians-who-podcast panel possibly (may be bumped for others) to actually go! I'm always at ACRL, but it's only every other year. 2y
ReadingEnvy @saresmoore they are so eye catching! 2y
courtney I had no idea Doughty was coming out with a new book but that cover is so gorgeous and after loving Smoke Gets In Your Eyes so much, this will be an instant buy! 2y
