#mordecaireads Mor has to break off and listen solo a few times cause he liked it so much.

Determined to be more present & accountable on Litsy this week for #BFCR3. Made it to the gym this afternoon, and hit a lull in the crowd! 🎉 I was able to almost finish the pictured book. So, post gym, I‘m finishing the last few chapters & eating one of my favourite post workout snacks: high fiber whole wheat toast, peanut butter, banana, honey & a sprinkling of chia seeds. It‘s messy, but so delicious!

My favourite type of weekend includes a busy and full Saturday, and then a slow and relaxing Sunday. This weekend met both of these requirements. Yesterday was full of errands, household chores, surprise book mail and then a date night. Today, the kettle is on, I‘m trying a sample tea from Plum Deluxe included in a recent tea order and I‘m starting the second book in the Penderwicks series. 🌿📖☕️

Catsandbooks That teapot is so cute!💙 4mo
catebutler @Catsandbooks It is one of my favourites! It holds about two cups, and I always seem to get the perfect steep with it too. ☺️ 4mo
Catsandbooks Even better!! 🙌🏼 4mo

The second book is also delightful! I‘m not sure it‘s quite as good as the first, but still so fun to read.

A sequel that lives up to the original! I just loved it and it‘s onto the next one 📚😊📚

This is my third completed book for #boutofbooks 📚📚📚 — it may be the last day of the readathon, but I have quite a stack to keep me occupied for a day of train travel and I have no doubts it will be my best reading day of the week!

Like the first Penderwicks book, this second installment was delightful (well, after a false start with an annoying audiobook narrator and getting it in print instead!). I greatly enjoyed the Penderwick family adventures as the girls attempted to rescue their father from their aunt‘s scheme of setting him up on dates. I saw where it was going right from the beginning, but that didn‘t mean I didn‘t enjoy getting there. 💜 the Penderwick sisters!

DebReads4fun Gorgeous quilt! Love the colors! 2y

He laughed, but his laugh was part groan. “Cruciatus.”
“In English, please.”
Then the adults went into the living room. If a translation was given, it wasn‘t heard by the three upstairs. Skye and Jane looked hopefully at Rosalind.
She shrugged. “I don‘t know cruciatus yet.”
“You need to hurry up and learn more Latin,” said Jane. “Or we‘ll never know what‘s going on.”

(Apparently the Penderwicks haven‘t read Harry Potter.)

SiriuslyWeasley I so enjoyed the Penderwicks! 😊 2y

Happily spending some time with the Penderwicks this morning. There will be a mid-day interlude of getting my taxes done, followed by a matinee of Ready Player One with book group friends.

rubyslippersreads I need to finish this series. 2y

Well, I guess I‘ve figured out what my next “just for me” non-buddy-read book is going to be!

Edited to add: Holy crap, I‘ve never turned off an audiobook so fast!! Not even five minutes in, and I was done with the narrator using a whiny babyish voice for at least two of the sisters. Nope. Can‘t. Gonna have to switch to print for this one.

HKGirl Love the Penderwicks! They just make me happy 😊 2y
BarbaraJean @HKGirl They really are happy reads! Have you ever read the Casson family series? Kind of similar to the Penderwicks in tone and delightfulness and happy-making. 😊 2y
