This gave a good insight into a population we rarely think about. It was also a nice short read.

1. I know it's a classic but it's soooooo much longer than it needs to be! And a whole chapter about a turtle crossing the road!? Come on!
2. This is a tough one, but I'll go with Parks and Rec.
3. Lucky Charms and scrambled eggs with pepper Jack cheese.
4. Central

This was a delightfully good book! I am always in awe of all that Hamilton accomplished in his short life, but I loved reading about Eliza's part in that history even more. I cannot recommend this book enough.

@GoodForCirculation did you receive your package? It says delivered but the address on the tracking doesn't match what's on my receipt from the post office so now I'm worried.

TieDyeDude Yeah, my apartment is weird with packages. They have to try to deliver, but they can't leave them at the building, so I have to pick up at the post office the next day. All good, though 1y

Well that's a wrap, folks! I made it 14 1/2 hours, which is further than I was able to make it on my first readathon! 3rd time's a charm, so hopefully in January I can make the full 24 hours!

Finished A Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue at 514 pages and got through 302 pages of Circle of Friends. All around, not a bad weekend of reading!

This was a decent thriller. I liked the way they incorporated tweets and Reddit threads throughout the book. The ending was fairly predictable, but this was a pretty fast read, so it made up for it.

I'm sure you all are sick of me talking about my love for Fredrik Backman, but this one didn't fail to amaze me as well as all the others. This might be my favorite of his so far, although it's hard to pick just one. Can't wait for the next book to come in June!

readingjedi I love him too! 😁 2y

Fredrik Backman has the most beautiful way of writing his characters. I cried in the best way throughout this book. This is one that you immediately want to start reading again!

Interesting perspective of a person you think you already know from the headlines. Gives you some insight into the mind of a very troubled person before he became a killer.
