Two books finished now for the #24in48 Readathon, which I‘m considering a success! While I enjoyed this book as a whole, I found the little twist at the end cheap and unnecessary, as if the purpose of adding it was just to claim it had one. Ending would have been better without it, in my humble opinion!

parttimedomestic Absolutely a success! 🎉 Great job! 29m

Pachinko | Min Jin Lee

#24in48 hour 12 challenge: a book that has expanded my worldview? Pachinko is the first book that comes to mind! It opened my eyes to a completely different culture that I knew nothing about, and that book has stayed with me since reading it!

Readerann Oh, I totally agree about Pachinko. I had no idea what went on in Korea during that time period. 12mo

Ok fine, I‘ll join! If I must! But having to pay to add more than 200 books = bleh! 😤
#LitsyonLT

Melissa_J They should waive the fee for new users from Litsy, if they haven‘t already. 1y
umbrellagirl What? I didn‘t have to pay and I imported 800+. 1y
Grimscythe I imported 600+ myself. I don‘t see myself using it too much though. 1y
See All 7 Comments
AudreyMorris Hmmm I have not imported (my entire read list is in GR), but I have 270 readbooks in LT and have never paid. I have had my account for longer than I have actively added books as I read them. Our owner library is too much to in constant flux to try to catalog and maintain it. 1y
Rachellynnwright At first I was skeptical about whether they would actually waive the fee, but so far they haven‘t charged me yet! 👍 @AudreyMorris @Melissa_J (edited) 1y
Rachellynnwright @TheGhastlyGrimoire I plan on replacing GR with LT depending on how much I like it... I really only used GR for keeping track of my books and reading reviews! 1y
kgriffith The fee will be waived, we just haven‘t put a system in place yet — but, sounds like you won‘t get cut off at 200; let me know if you do? This isn‘t my side of the system but I can find out more easily. 1y

#24in48 hour 30 challenge
I bought this book way back in college and have held onto it all these years with the intention of reading it someday! I don‘t ever put myself on Book buying bans because I wouldn‘t adhere to it anyway, but I am usually semi strategic as to which books I want to buy and how much I‘m willing to spend on them!

Caroline2 I've had this on my TBR shelf for years too! I will read it soon tho!!! 😳 I hope....! 1y

One of the risks of buying used books: writing and underlining!
Just out of curiosity, do you spend the time erasing, or do you just leave it be?

Lcsmcat I leave it. And it doesn‘t bother me except in text books - I don‘t like someone else deciding what‘s important. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y

I‘m new to BOTM, I received the email that my box had been shipped but according to the tracking it hasn‘t gone anywhere yet... other people have already gotten their boxes! Is this normal? Please let me know! #botm

mrozzz Sometimes normal... depends on what day you confirmed your box. 2y
Rachellynnwright @mrozzz hmm I confirmed it right away on the 1st... maybe it‘s because I added extra books? 2y
mrozzz That shouldn‘t be the case. Might be worth sending an email to their support team. 2y

Rachellynnwright @mrozzz @Eggs @TheBookStacker @VinceReads thank you for the insight! I‘m an obsessive tracker, so I guess I‘ll have to trust that my box will come eventually. Or maybe I‘ll email support just for fun ;) 2y

So happy to have this be my first book of 2018! I‘m off to a great start! This is an example of storytelling at the highest level. The writing was perfect, to the point but descriptive enough without trying to be overly poetic. It‘s just an excellent, excellent story!!
