Decided at the VERY last minute that I‘m giving #24in48 a try again. Here‘s my haphazard TBR pile for the weekend. Happy reading to all you other readathoners!

Nothing like having a glass of merlot while reading an unreliable alcoholic narrator with a penchant for merlot to make you question your drinking habits...

My reading today is all over the place. Just finished The Lysistrata by Aristophanes and now starting First Year Healthy. My goal for the readathon this weekend has been to knock out at least 10 books on my Goodreads TBR and I think I‘m actually going to do it. #24in48

I think that Heart Museum might be the most lovely piece of writing I‘ve ever had the joy of reading. It‘s meandering and precise and relatable and distant and so many other beautiful things. I‘m three hours in to the readathon and might need to take a break to just bask in the memory of this essay. #24in48

My first job was at Changing Hands Bookstore a very, very long time ago. I helped process and shelve books in their basement used book section before they were in this location. Even though I don't live here anymore, they'll always be my bookstore.

Don't get me wrong, I do like Greg Rucka as a writer for Wonder Woman. (This sequence in particular would make William Moulton Marston smile). But why, oh why, couldn't DC have let Marguerite Bennett write Wonder Woman Rebirth?! Now that is a Wonder Woman comic I'd really want to read.

I don't play a ton of video games, but I took a reading break this weekend to play A Night In The Woods. It's GREAT. Narrative-based, it's kinda about mental health and economic instability in small town America? But with goth crocodiles and mysterious ghosts and stuff.

diovival Cool. I read about this game. 2 of the 3 creators are in Pittsburgh. Playing this must have been like taking a digital trip to small town PA. 3y

My neighborhood is home to an Ernest Hemingway themed wine bar (where "themed" = lots of wood paneling and shirtless pics of Mr. Hemingway on the walls).

Keyoung @LindsayReads Yep! Official restaurant name: Ernesto's aka the place with the patio in the back. 3y
Keyoung @LindsayReads Or more accurate for last night: Ernesto's aka the place where the wait staff has had it with drunken Mardi Gras revelers wandering over from Soulard fucking up their bathrooms. (edited) 3y

After reading The Secret History of Wonder Woman last year I went on a WW reading binge, and..... I didn't care for most of the arcs I read (and I read several). After taking a long WW break I picked this one up and it is BY FAR my favorite. Of course DC went and canceled it. 😭

Keyoung @8little_paws No, I haven't! Putting it on my TBR list. (edited) 3y

I'm doing an illustrator study of Christian Robinson for my school outreach visits this month. Unfortunately, Josephine is too long to read aloud in full during a visit, but we still look at the pictures and talk about who she was. #riotgrams #blackhistory @bookriot

LindsayReads Best story from my friend: her daughter (7 at the time?) was reading this one morning and ran into my friend's bedroom, saying, "Mommy, Mommy, did you know Josephine Baker was a SPY????????" 3y
Keyoung @LindsayReads I had a similar reaction when I learned that bit of info (minus running into my mom's room cause I was much older than 7). 3y

I spent the evening making table decorations for trivia. St. Louis style trivia is a beast unto itself and as a non-native I love it and am baffled by it. Tomorrow my librarian team (The Dewey Decimals) is competing at the juvenile detention center. I really want to win the prize for best table decorations cause the teens will probably beat us at the actual trivia.
