Book 3: Reading ”The Resident” story. This book has been spellbinding, but also difficult to read at times. So, one story at a time. #readathon (5:35:32 so far)

Madonna in a Fur Coat | Sabahattin Ali

”Only now did I begin to understand why it was not always through words that people sought each other out and came to understand each other, and why some poets went to such lengths to seek out companions who could, like them, contemplate the beauties of nature in silence.”

#24in48 Reader, I did not finish... only 18 hours!! Well, more or less 😐 my stopwatch went crazy on the first day. No worries, I had fun and what better than to finish this one with Jane Eyre

MrBook ONLY 18 hours? Are you kidding me?! That's a stellar achievement right there! You've read longer in one weekend than a majority of Americans read in a year. 😎👌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 2y

The Magicians: A Novel | Lev Grossman

#24in48 Late breakfast= late lunch. Giving this book another try bc I've read so many good things about books 2&3 #DNF

Vinjii And? I just read the first 100 pages and put it back down as not for me. But just like you I heard good things about the series as a whole. 2y
gabypolivat @Vinjii I didn't end up falling in love with the book, but the last part is much more entertaining. The last 100-150 pages make you feel like maybe there‘s a sense to the book, the characters move into action, things start to happen, and the end makes you wonder what will happen in book 2. A couple of sentences get under your skin and there are gaps. I‘m not rushing to read books 2 and 3, maybe I‘ll watch the TV series first and then decide. 2y

#24in48 I found an article over at Book Riot about 11 websites to find free audiobooks online and I‘ve been listening to dramatizations of classic science fiction short stories from the archive of Mind Webs while watering my plants. I loved “Day of the Butterflies” by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

Here is the link if you‘re interested: http://bookriot.com/2016/09/15/11-websites-find-free-audiobooks-online/
