4 books down, idk how many to go! #24in48 #24in48readathon @24in48

I was so afraid that I wouldn't like Miles as a character, especially with how much I connected with Cordelia and Aral in the first 2 books, but he is so well-fleshed out as his own character while having been clearly influenced by both Cordelia and Aral in his beliefs. I LOVE THIS series so much.

Book 3 complete! #24in48 #24in48readathon

This is the 4th Vorkosigan novel I've read and I keep expecting to hit one that's not at the same level in quality to the first, but Lois McMaster Bujold has managed to knock it out of the park 4 times now. I hope it keeps up through the next 8.

I'm about halfway through my reread of Good Omens and I love it so much

I need to reread my faves more often

Eyelit I just reread this after watching the series - and then I watched the series again. June was a Good Omens month for me 😄 6d

All the hype about the recent adaptation has made me want to reread Good Omens. It's been 12 years since I read it last, and I'd forgotten how *good* this book is. #currentlyreading

This was the last book of poems that Ursula K Le Guin worked on before she passed away last year. Most of the poems in this collection are very short, but 2 of the longer poems in particular stood out to me as exceptional. The poem pictured was my favorite in the collection.

This Book Beau is more like a Book Pilleau

I have 200 pages left of the Eye of the World and I've been putting off finishing it for 3 weeks while I cram as many holiday romance novels into my eyeballs as I can. I WILL finish this book today. I've said it on the internet, so I can't back out now. Everyone knows everything you read on the internet is true 😂

For the #hour36challenge, I had to go digging in my closet for this ancient copy of Green Eggs and Ham. It was my mother's copy before me and is missing part of its spine. I have very faint memories of my grandfather reading it to me (he died when I was 4).

Heroine Complex | Sarah Kuhn

Whoops, forgot to post that I was done with Heroine Complex. It was okay, but some of the characters and situations are way over the top. Especially toward the end, which kind of ruined it for me. Whomp, whomp, sad trombone. #24in48 #24in48readathon

Almost 16.5 hours in now! I've started this biography of Edward VII and am thoroughly enjoying it. I feel absolutely awful for him as I learn about his upbringing. I always thought Queen Victoria was this supreme mother figure with her 9 children, but apparently she was just plain awful as a mother. #24in48 #24in48readathon @24in48

Here's my pick for an underrated book. I don't know anyone who's read this book, but one of my mom's coworkers gave this to me when he moved to Colorado to go to pharmacy school (aka start a pot farm). I loved it and have been waiting for the 3rd book FOREVER. #24in48 #24in48readathon #hour30 @24in48

The Death of Truth | Michiko Kakutani
post image
Pickpick

First book of #24in48 finished!
Kakutani does not hold back. I don't know how I feel about what seems to be an indictment of postmodernism (I was taught as a student of history to Question Everything and that there is no such thing Truth) but I can see where she draws the connection between postmodernism and the rise of alternative facts. A very fascinating read.

Good morning! I went to sleep as soon as I got home from work so that I could be awake at the very start of #24in48...except that didn't work. But I'm here now at almost 4am! I'm going to try to start with The Death of Truth, but if it's too dry for this time of day I'll switch to Death by Dumpling.

An interesting audio read. Narrator is pretty slow, though, so I had to listen at 2x speed.
