I find myself needing to carve out a tiny slice of joy each day at the moment. In Feb I am going to take part in #riotgrams to do just that. Today a shelfie.

I an sure I will have a more thoughtful response to jt soon. But here, 30 mins after finishing. I am full of happy tears. Really looking forward to seeing it in October!!!

LouMorgan I'm so torn - I don't know whether to read it or not! (I'm not seeing it until March...) I really do want to read it, but I'm also thinking about the joy of walking in to the theatre without knowing - *if* I can dodge the story that long. TORN. 3y
hattiek @LouMorgan From the other side I would say that if you can wait then I reckon the surprises would be worth it! March though...! 😂 3y

Right, I've hit 20 hours and I am knackered and need to get ready work, so I am going to do some chores and listen to this and then call it a day! 2108 pages read, six books finished, two started and will finish, one DNF and two hours of audiobook done. My first #24in48 was a joy and good for the soul. Thanks everyone for letting me see what you are reading and add to my TBR.

Sue Congratulations, what an effort!! 3y

The Suitcase | Dan Berry

Pickpick

Brilliant collection of comics in '24 by 7'. Particularly loved Dan Berry's, Sarah McIntyre's and Joe Decie's. Hour 16 over here and I am at 5 books completed, one book started but not finished and 1688 pages read. #24in48. Definitely not going to manage 24 hours, but still having fun.

Not actually reading The Suitcase now, am reading this anthology produced for The Lakes comic festival, but Litsy doesnt have this listed! So far I am loving the comics. Sarah McIntyre's was a joy! #24in48

I loved this journey through Miller's reading challenge. Touching and funny. Also indulged my love of a list. Four books done, two started. #24in48 15.5 hours done.

LouMorgan I *love* this book - it made me snort with laughter on a beach in Cornwall last summer! 3y

Well this was delightful and made me cry. The story of Emma's love for France, her marriage, the impact of grief and how living abroad can feel very very strange indeed.

Soothing my CHVRCHES hangover with some more Rainbow Rowell. Think this is the last one for now though. Fancy a nice detective story next.

Maybe I should have read Fangirl first, but once I realised I was too engrossed. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. 👍

kristenlcoates I think it'll be TOTALLY awesome to read fangirl after carry on instead of the other way around. Now the fanfiction will be about characters you know! 4y
