Wasn‘t sure I was going to like this one at first. Glad I stayed with it! Once I grasped the character dynamics and who was with who, I fell right into the story. Interesting story of people who have been best friends since college and now have teenagers. #MountTBR

#bookhaul from Barnes and Noble! There was a lot of books and decided on these 3! 😱🤗🤦‍♀️ Not like I needed to add anymore books to my #mounttbr

PrezBookster Mount TBR OMG That is great! 😂 6h

Hello hello! The #SummersEndReadathon starts in less than 10 hours in my neck of the woods, so I‘ve been having a good think on how I‘d like to set my goal. I purposely scheduled the #readathon to run Friday-Friday to give us an extra day😊Originally I wasn‘t going to set an hourly goal, but just read as much as I can... but I realized that I always do best when I set ridiculous goals, SOOO I‘m going to shoot for 100 hours over the 8 days!🙈

Andrew65 12.5 hours each and every day, wow that‘s a tough target. Good luck. Like you I do better when I set myself targets. 7h
Clwojick @Andrew65 Its heavy, but it‘s my attempt at being “productive” while not spending money out of boredom during my weeks between semesters. I only work 2 half shifts, and 2 full shifts during those 8 days, so I‘m hoping to do major damage on my physical #MountTBR, #KindleTBR, and my never ending interest in Libby audiobooks. (edited) 7h
suzie.reads I'm going to go for 50 hours over the week. Still off work but its bank holiday weekend and I have a few days out planned as well 7h

Andrew65 I‘m aiming for 450 Pages a day I think, which is 3600 Pages, and will shoot for 4000 Pages in total. 😳😱😎 (edited) 7h
Clwojick @suzie.reads Awesome! Do you have specific books to read, or are you just going to wing it? 7h
Clwojick @Andrew65 That‘s a hefty goal! 🙌🏻 You‘ve got this though! 🤩 7h
Andrew65 @Clwojick Not at work next week, but do have to do a fair amount of work ready for the start of term so that makes it more challenging. Thanks 👍😊 (edited) 7h
suzie.reads I'm reading The Bone Keeper by Luca Veste, The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor, Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson, Before She Was Found by Heather Gudenkauf and finishing The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd. That should keep me busy 5 books before the end of August. 7h
Andrew65 @suzie.reads Some great books in your list! 😍 6h
Clwojick @suzie.reads Apparently we have very similar interests! I have The Chalk Man and 2 Heather Gudenkauf novels on my shelf, and The Innocent Wife on my wish list. I thoroughly enjoyed Before I Go To Sleep, and suggest the movie after you‘ve read the book. 6h
suzie.reads @Andrew65 hopefully they're all great when I've finished them 😊 6h
suzie.reads @Clwojick looks like we do👍🏻 I can't wait to read The Chalk Man. S. J. Watson was recommended to me the other day so giving her a go. Only realised there was a film when I saw one of the front covers with the actors on it 😂 6h
Andrew65 @suzie.reads I loved Before I Go To Sleep. @Clwojick 6h
Honeybeegirl Was there a sign up for the readathon or can I join in on the fun! I have this whole next week off (except for some babysitting) and I think it would be great to get some reading in! Also great goals! 3h
Clwojick @Honeybeegirl No signup required! Anyone can join in. Just set a goal for the week, and use the hashtag in your posts and tag me to be entered in the giveaway. ♥️ 3h

Think this graphic was originally made by @Megabooks , but I‘ve seen a few others posted. Anywho, will be doing both, as I‘m digging that extra day for #24b4Monday, and my #mountTBR is quite high! How are others setting goals for #SummersEndReadathon? Hours? Number of book?

Clwojick It‘s all based on personal preference. I‘ll be attempted to log the time, but I have a horrible habit of accidentally resetting my timer. 😅 ill also be setting a side a few specific books that I‘d like to clear from my stacks. My goal is to basically read as much as humanly possible. 😝 1d
Jess_Franzino @Clwojick While I might be traveling over Labor Day, I‘m thinking of just going to try and get through as much of my Mount TBR of books I already own, as possible. 😂 A lot I‘ve been meaning to read for months, but then get sidetracked by buying other books I need to read THAT second. Let‘s see if I can stick to my TBR, or if I‘ll get sidetracked by others I wang to read. Haha 1d
Megabooks I‘m definitely tackling Mount TBR this weekend/week, and yes, I made the graphic, but anyone can use it! 1d

Clwojick I feel you 💯! I know I can‘t be too structured with my Readathon otherwise I lose the flow. I‘ll set aside 3 physical, and a handful of audiobooks, and go from there. 1d
Jess_Franzino @Megabooks I wanted to make sure I gave you credit because I REALLY didn‘t want to deal with making my own graphic 😂 1d
Jess_Franzino @Clwojick I may very easily get sidetracked, especially seeing how there‘s a huge 50% off blowout sale at Barnes & Noble this Saturday 😂 1d
Andrew65 Think I‘m going to go with number of pages. Good luck with both readathons.. 17h

Summer is almost over, so it‘s the perfect time to set an end of summer goal, read hard, and tackle that #MountTBR!

Hoping to knock off an audiobook or two plus my stack of remaining #mgme #bbrc books! Head over to @Clwojick for all the details!

#SummersEndReadathon

Clwojick Yeah! Thanks for the repost, love! ☺️ 1d
JazzFeathers That's what l want to do too! Also, why l never think to include audiobooks in my challenges. I'm listening to one l'm loving (A Duty to the Dead) and this might be the right occasion to finish it. 18h
4thhouseontheleft @JazzFeathers We‘re supposed to have some slightly cooler weather next week, so I‘m hoping for some long #audiowalks! 16h

Thunderstorms rolling through and the power went out, so it‘s a good thing it‘s still daylight! Finished this up while listening to the hail. ⛈

Not my favorite in the series, the hopping from land to land felt very rushed and superficial. Still an enjoyable romp that made me want to go back and reread the originals. Don‘t be surprised if Peter Pan, Robin Hood and Oz show up on my TBR in the near future!

SamanthaMarie I actually like this one better than the one that follows. So I'm interested in what you think when you get to the next :) 3d
4thhouseontheleft @SamanthaMarie There were some parts I really enjoyed, and some that drove me nuts (Robin Hood). Although MG with the Caterpillar was hilarious! 3d

While I loved learning about Thoreau, this book really lacked momentum for me. (It took me forever to finish it!) The majority of the book focuses on his life pre Walden pond. Interesting...but I really connected with his knowledge and love of nature. I wish the author would have spent more time on his life in the woods. #MountTBR

Finished up the next installment in the Land of Stories series while in between having lunch at the Showcase for Maya‘s cooking camp and picking her up 2 hours later. Hung out at my favorite local coffee shop, sipping on an orange cardamom iced latte. This was a good one that I really enjoyed reading.
