I'm really excited about this month's #24B4Monday #Readathon. I think I've talked my daughter into doing it with me. These are the books I've tentatively picked out. I also have a couple of True Blood graphics that may get added. My goal is the full 24 hours, but I've not managed that for the past several months, so we will see.

emz711 I had no idea they came out with monk books 3h
Traci1 @emz711 oh yeah there are quite a few. Most of them were written by Lee Goldberg (he's terrific). Hy Conrad wrote the last 5 or so. I've read all of them but this one. If you liked the show, the books are really good. 2h

Last night my husband came home from work with a surprise for me. Apparently the hotel called him having found my kindle, and he drove over and picked it up for me! I don't even have words for how happy I am to have it back. I still have to call Amazon and reregister it, but for now it's in airplane mode and all my stuff is still there.

I absolutely love these books. The crew of the Rocinante are some of my very favorite characters, and their stories are always tons of fun. I'm torn between wanting to race through the series and wanting to slow down so I don't run out of them too quickly.

Branwen I feel the same way! Absolutely the best sci fi series I have ever read! 😀👍 20h

While I was in Barnes and Noble this weekend, a lady walked up next to me, picked this book up off the shelf near me (not what I was looking at) and said "This series is great. You should read this." Then she walked away. So, of course I bought it. And she was right. I'm 130 pages in, and it's terrific so far. So, thanks random reader.

Sadness | Tamra B. Orr

I lost my kindle. I'm 100% sure that I left it in the bed of my hotel room this weekend, but the hotel has assured me that it is not there. I do realize it's only a thing, and my super sweet husband has already said "Don't worry we'll just get you a new one." But. BUT. I can't help feeling like I've lost a friend. Idk why it's making me so sad, but I feel like crying.

jpmcwisemorgan I‘m sorry! 4d
Pricel101 I totally get that. 😓 4d

FantasyChick Just a thing or not, I feel your pain. I would be lost without mine. 4d
Traci1 @Kaye I hadn't done it yet just because I was holding out hope that the hotel would call saying they made a mistake and that they found it. But the later it gets the less likely that seems. If I deregister it and a miracle happens and I find it would it be hard to reregister it? 4d

So my weekend of doing nothing has sort of turned into a bookshop hopping vacation. My (non-reader) husband keeps enabling me by saying "do you want to go to this one?" Um, yeah, course I do. We've been to three so far. One indie, one Barnes and Noble, and one used shop. And I have tried sooo hard to be good. I have not been good. But look at all the pretty things. I wonder what housekeeping must think.

I think this is one of those books that's going to stay with me for a while. I felt like I knew where it was headed very early on, and for the most part I was right. But the way she got there was really spectacular, and I had a very hard time putting this down. It's a terrific mystery, but it also paints an interesting picture of the expectations placed on mothers and how fathers often don't face such hard criticism. Terrific book.

Do you have books that have ended up in your house and you've no idea where they came from? This is one of those for me. It's been on my shelves for years. And it's not the sort of thing I ever have read. So why do I have it? I decided last night to give it a shot, and you know it's not terrible. Maybe taking a step outside my comfort zone won't be such a bad thing.

I tend to forget what's going on in these from one issue to the next. This one was pretty good. It's a bit repetitive at this point. But I'm still enjoying the series. I didn't watch the last 4 or 5 episodes from this last season, so I guess I should catch up on the show now.

I've never read a book that literally gave me goosebumps before. For the last 30 pages, the hair was standing up on my arms, and I had chills running up my spine. It was seriously creepy. King is a master storyteller, and I think this is one of the best books I've read by him. I do NOT want to see the movie or ever read this again, though. And I'm glad I finished this when it was still daylight. Now for something lighter.

Traci1 @tracey38 I started DVRing the episodes when they come on TBS most nights. I've got like 50 of them taped and just set them to run back to back when I am wanting to read and just want background noise. It's my comfort show. 3w

A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.

Shiny cover?? I think so. 😁

HufflepuffGirl90 He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

So I LOVE that I've only read the first two of the Bosch books because that means I have tons more to look forward to. This one was terrific.

Almost at 4 1/2 hours for #MayMakeup. Not too bad for the first day. And this book checked off 3 prompts for #MayScavengerHunt (300+ pages, someone dies, and part of a series). Now on to the newest Firefly book.

I love our little town library. They have these bags that they fill with fun stuff that you can check out. Henry picked the Emergency services bag. It came with 4 books, a puzzle, 2 hats, and a board game. Made my little dude's day. 🚒

JennyM Gorgeous little dude 3w

Traci1 @JennyM thanks 😊 3w
Traci1 @bookandbedandtea they have all sorts of bags. They're like clear plastic beach bags. Some have knitting and crocheting instruction books with the needles and yarn for you to do a project. They have ones with recipe books and specialty cake pans. It's a great service and one of the reasons I feel like funding public libraries is so important. It's not just about books. 3w
BibliOphelia LoveLoveLove this idea! 3w
BooknerdsLife That‘s such a great idea!!! 😱 Love your library! They are so important to both kids and adults! 3w

I came across this book while looking for one with no words for #MayScavengerHunt. It is just delightful. The adorable artwork tells the story of this sweet little skunk who seems to be in a rather sticky predicament. My 4 year old loved it.

I'm going to try to get through these this weekend and do the #MayMakeup thing. I'd like to get in 24 hours, but I won't be fussed if it's less. I picked books that will tick some #MayScavengerHunt boxes, too.

I'm looking for recommendations of books about / set in Buckingham Palace. Fiction or non-fiction, I'm not picky. Thanks in advance!

Aimeesue The Uncommon Reader is partially set there. And the Her Royal Spyness series turns up at Buckingham Palace occasionally. 3w
