Well, in spite of losing most of yesterday to the flu, l'm happy of the result because a) l did better than last time and b) l finished 'The Cabaret' which l didn't think l would.

The Cabaret is a fantastic intro to this form of entertainment. It focuses on the Weimar Cabaret, but it reached out to other places and other time.

This is the conclusion of my #24B4Monday Still have one day of #25inFive Let's do this!

#24B4Monday #25inFive

So... this was the perfect weekend for these challenges because l'm off work until tomorrow... except yesterday l came down with flu and spent most of the day in bed.
I'm so annoyed with myself. I could have done a lot better.

Anyway, l managed to read a bit from both these books. I really need to finish Cabaret. It's a great book, very informative. But l need to move on.

I was expecting a bit more, actually. Specifically, l would have like more of a socio-historical contex and maybe less anecdotes, but that's probably just me.
It is a nice introduction to Berlin Cabaret, though l feel it has quite a few holes.
I do feel l need to read more and get a wider view of the matter.

So l reveal the theme of my #AtoZChallenge for this year. I'm back to Weimar Germany, exploring 1920s cabaret more closely. I'm sure it will be a fantastic journey.

As per the challenge, l'll be posting one post a day on my blog for the entire month of April (except Sundays) following the letters of the alphabet.

#MusicalNewYear The Cabaret was so much more than a nightclub.This lively illustrated history covers all of Europe , Britain & the U.S. from 1881 on. A meeting place for artists ,writers & musicians .Did you know Picasso‘s work was first shown (1900) in the 4 Cats Cabaret in Barcelona?I bet they were incredible places to hear gossip,politics, & listen to the
#MusicOfTheNight

Cinfhen That‘s so cool!!! I think you‘re right!! The cabaret was like a secret avant-garde clubhouse 😉 4y
batsy Such a striking cover! 4y
Leftcoastzen @batsy I think you would like it , so interesting. 4y
Leftcoastzen @Cinfhen Wish I could go, kinda. 4y

Well, from what l've seen, it's possible that mine is the shabbiest result in both the #24B4Monday and #24in48 readathons.
I knew it was going to be a busy weekend, but l didn't think l was going to feel the tiredness from last long week at work so strongly. I fell asleep both Friday and Saturday.
But l still managed to read a good chunck of this book, which is what l aimed for.
Next time will be better 😊

PurpleyPumpkin Anytime reading is good!👍🏽 4y
Librarybelle Completely agree with @PurpleyPumpkin ...anytime is great! 4y
JazzFeathers @PurpleyPumpkin @Librarybelle l did enjoy the readathon. I just hope next time l'm have more time to dedicate to it 😉 4y

Pitiful time yesterday too, mostly because l feel exactly like Apache (this is for the #24B4Monday, the #24in48 is half an hour shorter).
Yesterday night l basically fell asleep while reading. Today was a busy day, but let's see what l can add to the telly.

BeansPage There's still lots of time sweetheart never you fear. I know you can get a few more hours in 👍🏻😃👍🏻 4y
JazzFeathers @TheReadingMermaid l managed a couple more hours. Not as much as l had hoped, but honestly, considering the kind of week and weekend l had, l'm more that happy as is 😁 4y
BeansPage Then that's great sweetheart. With everything you have going on the time you have is a great time! Remember we all make our own goals put this read-a-thon. And as long as you have fun you were a success 💕📖🤓🤗💕 4y
