#24b4monday @Andrew65 @SumisBooks @jb72

I fell asleep with my timer going again 😬 I think I was at about 3 hours so will try again from 0 today and add 3 to it

I always love Robert McFarlane and this book of glossaries of landmark words from various British languages could have been hard to read but never was. His explanatory chapters were magical and have put a LOT of new books on my tbr.

This was my #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

Andrew65 A perennial problem with readathons. 😔 49m

Overall I liked this. The writing was fantastic and the story was really good. But Jamie/James was pretty unlikable until the last 10-15 pages when he started making good choices. And that was only because things got easier for him. For most of the book he was arrogant, selfish and racist. Loved Pan, Sukey and Robert though.

TheAromaofBooks So hard when a main character is unlikable!!! 10h

It snowed here yesterday (finally!) so the kids have a snow day. That means I get to have a leisurely morning with coffee and a new book, my #doublespin pick!

TheAromaofBooks So jealous of your snow! We've had a ridiculously mild winter here. 10h

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this. The book originally came to my notice as a Goodreads book club pic that I purchased but never got around to. I thought the title was appropriate for heading my #BookSpin list and I‘m glad it was my #DoubleSpin read. The story revolves around three childhood friends and their lives after the Earth is effectively sealed off from normal time/space.

TheAromaofBooks Now I kind of feel like I need to try and create a #bookspin list with spinning as a theme... 😆 Glad you enjoyed your pick!! 24h

I'm finally going to read these two. They've been on my TBR list for awhile but I kept putting them off. Bare Bones is my #doublespin for #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks So happy to see the challenge inspiring people to pick up those random books we all procrastinate on!! 24h

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An Edwardian Gothic speculative tale, that gave me chills, I found some of the descriptions very similar to M.R. James fabulous ghost stories. An evil has been let loose in the Suffolk Fens; can Maud survive her fathers growing madness and the superstitions of the country to gain the freedom she desires.

veritysalter @TheAromaofBooks this was my #BookSpin #DoubleSpin book. I look forward to doing it again next month. 2d
LeahBergen Ooo, I‘ll have to buy this one! 1d

I‘m 70% through the tagged book (requires quiet and concentration, neither of which I have in abundance). Might start one of the others today. Raven‘s Shadow is my #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks . And, naturally, I have a few more in the wings if I finish these or need something different. Looking forward to #24B4Monday with the always awesome hosts @Andrew65 @SumisBooks @jb72

Andrew65 Good luck with the Readathon and on finding that quiet contemplation time! 👍😊 (edited) 2d

About to dive into my #BookSpin #DoubleSpin book. I‘m a little nervous because I‘m seeing mixed reviews.

TheAromaofBooks I can't tell you how pleased I am that the name of your #bookspin book is Spin! 2d
Joanne1 @TheAromaofBooks I loved that too. 4h
