Interpreter of Maladies | Jhumpa Lahiri
post image

All the books I finished (+ one started) during #24in48. Read for a total of 11 hours and 3 minutes. Considering I only read for about three hours during the last ‘thon, I‘d say this is an improvement. My goal for next January will be 16+ hours. Can‘t wait! If anyone knows of any other readathons or challenges (aside from 24in48 and Dewey‘s), please let me know. These are a blast!

Megabooks Congratulations!! I read Heart Berries, too. 5mo
ellarebee @Megabooks I saw on one of your previous comments - apologies for not responding. What a gut punch of a book. I had to break for a bit to absorb everything. 5mo
thecurlybookworm Woohoo! Congrats! 5mo
ellarebee @thecurlybookworm Thank you!! 😊 5mo

Interpreter of Maladies | Jhumpa Lahiri

Winding down - not going to get near 24 hours but I am thrilled with how much I‘ve read this weekend. A dear friend gifted this to me a while ago and I am FINALLY going to read it. I feel a bit ashamed for taking this long to read it because I love Lahiri. #24in48

I have so many tchotchkes on my shelves (which aren‘t in any kind of order right now) from Obvious State, giveaways, etc. My favorites, though, are probably the ones printed from my library‘s 3D printer (Darth Vader, the dinosaur, the Elder Wand, and the two Thinkers). #24in48

Heart Berries: A Memoir | Terese Mailhot
post image

Finished R is for Rocket. Switching mediums up by listening to an audiobook - Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot. I‘ll admit to backburnering this because I received a copy around the time the Sherman Alexie sexual harassment allegations came out (he wrote the introduction). Onward, I go! #24in48

Megabooks I read this book yesterday. It was quite good. 5mo

Paula Danzinger‘s Remember Me to Harold Square sucked me in when I was in eighth grade because I related to Kendra so. damn. much. Messy teenager? Yes. Wanderlust? Yes. First crushes? Oh, yes. New York City adventure? Mmmhm. There‘s something so casual and wonderful about this book and its sequel, both of which I cherish deeply.

My middle grade TBR for this evening is Mya‘s Strategy to Save The World! Can‘t wait! #24in48

R is for Rocket | Ray Bradbury
post image

I am having a myriad of reactions as I read through this book on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The sentimental, but sexist dedication note. Realizing that these stories were written before the peak of the Space Race. The due date card a reminder of a library system sadly gone. This book, dedication note aside, is great in so many ways. #24in48

R is for Rocket | Ray Bradbury

Honestly, I haven't listened to an audiobook in about a year. In the past, I've used the cloudLibrary offered by my local library, though I have used Audible, LibriVox, libro.fm, & listen on CDs. With libraries, there's a hullabaloo going on there since publishers are changing purchasing/licensing policies, making it MORE expensive for places already very underfunded. 😡

Favorite audiobook? Good Omens (Colin Morgan as Newt 😍 😍 😍)!

A lesser known collection of Bradbury‘s short stories from books and magazines. Will this disappoint me as much as The Umbrella Academy just did? I certainly hope not. #24in48

Up next is a graphic novel, hurray! Won this one from the publisher, along with a lot of sweet treats. Hoping it‘s good! #24in48

This line. This line made me sob. This book is brilliant. Probably the best I have read this year. #24in48

Next up is an ARC of the new book from one of my FAVORITE authors. Thanks to Goodreads for this copy. I am so excited to get started! #24in48 @24in48

Woof, this was a tough book to get through because it was so disappointing. One of my middle school patrons LOVES this series so I moved it up on my TBR. Sadly, I found it very shallow, too much action, not enough character development, and a trite writing style.

I‘m book tracking with the Bookly app for this #24in48. It‘s great! Wish I could get the infographic, but my app keeps crashing. :( @24in48
