I've decided I'm going to attempt to participate in this weekend's #24B4Monday readathon, even though every time I try my weekend ends up getting interrupted. 😒
Fingers crossed I'll be left alone this weekend!
@TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

ljuliel Good luck. 👍🏼 I‘m not sure yet if I‘ll give it another go or not. I‘m not very good at readathons . I hope all that participate have a good time , though. 🙂 19m
LaurensLibrary @ljuliel Thanks! I'm not great at readathons, either, so we'll see how it goes! 7m
SamAnne Oh I might! Lots of work around the house to be done and I can listen to my audiobooks! When, what hour does it actually begin? now
AprilMae Aww man! I'm hosting a scrapbooking weekend so I know I won't get 24 in lol. Good luck!!! now

November‘s upcoming #readathon is brought to you by book titles that begin with I and The. I‘ll be pet sitting Friday-Sunday and I have nothing planned except reading, and being lazy with my favorite four legged crew. These are the tentative books I hope to at least get a start on.

An embarrassing admittance: I know little of Symbolist artist Gustav Klimt and even less of the true story behind one of his #masterpiece paintings the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.

#MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I loved this book so much!!! And I was lucky to see the painting, which is truly a #Masterpiece with the amazing @DivineDiana ❣️❣️❣️The movie based on the book was very good 17h
AnansiGirl @Cinfhen I‘m adding book to my stack for the upcoming #24B4Monday readathon and since the movie‘s available on Hulu I plan on watching it too! 16h
Cinfhen I hope you enjoy both!!! 16h

Is it the weekend yet? Getting over the shock of a Monday morning that came too fast by laying in bed coming up with a stack for next weekend‘s #24b4Monday readathon.

Amiable I read “Matterhorn“ this summer-- what an amazing and powerful read ... 2d

Littens are the best people I know. @squirrelbrain @julesG @CarolynM @Birdsong28 @Amiable @Bookwormjillk @TrishB @JessClark78 @Librarybelle @KarenUK @Lcsmcat @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @robinb @JenReadsAlot @Redwritinghood @DGRachel @Jas16 @JacqMac @BookwormAHN @Suet624 So many wonderful friends on here who I love dearly! (edited) 2d
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks ❤️❤️❤️ Like to say has been stress free but too honest to say that is the case but comes with the job! 😊 I‘ve soaked up the virtual cake @jacqmac as not eaten any cake, anything sweet, fizzy pop, chocolate etc. Since 19th July. Pretty impressed with myself that maintained this especially as I took cakes and treats into work today for all the staff! Someone pass me another nut (almonds apparently good for me). 2d
Andrew65 Diet these days lean chicken, whole meal, salads, fruit, vegetables, nuts and natural and not processed food. As result lost over 1 1/2 stone in that time, losing between 0.5 and 1 pound each week. Only drinking tea, water and some green tea each day and 1 cup of coffee a week. @gradcat @JacqMac (edited) 2d
Crazeedi @Andrew65 Andrew I just now got on litsy, it's your birthday!!! Yay, i KNEW you were a fellow November baby , just knew it!! If i had your address I'd send you a card. My email is crazeedi73@gmail.com if you care to give me your address!! Anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! 🎉❤🎂🎶🥂 2d

gradcat @Andrew65 I think I should try eating as you do. All they ever give me is that “FODMAP” diet—have you ever heard of it?—it‘s really just too joyless for a living, breathing person, if you ask me. I hope you had something wonderful (besides food) for your birthday, nevertheless! 1d

This is the VERY first time I have EVER been able to paint my fingernails!!
I have FINALLY stopped biting my nails! It‘s been about a month now!
It takes 21 days to break a habit! I broke the hardest one I have!! 😃😃
They don‘t look that long in the picture, but in person they are SO long!
Especially compared to the state they were in before 😂😭💅🏼💅🏼

jb72 Great job! I finally broke that habit about ten years ago. 5d
Eggbeater They look good! 5d
Charityann Love your nails!😊 5d

Alora @jb72 @Eggbeater @charityann Thank you so much! I had a hard time painting them since I‘ve only ever done my toes 😂 I was getting so frustrated lol! Especially doing my right dominant hand! 😂😂 I finally got to feel that struggle hahaha (edited) 5d
Kaila-ann Congrats!! That‘s a tough habit to break. 5d
Clutterbucks_Queen I used to be a nail biter! When i was pregnant with my son i came over with this ridiculous fear of germs and sickness (which i still battle to this day and I've had a daughter since then and my sons 4) and i haven't bitten them since! I also found getting acrylic nails helped in the past, grow them out, then soak them off and you have long nails lol 4d
Alora @Clutterbucks_Queen I also tried acrylic nails. I had them on for about 2-3 years, constantly. Spent so much money on them. Whenever theyd fall off in between appointments or when I finally stopped wearing them...I ended up biting my nails all off again 😂😭 4d
MrBook Yes! 21 days to break a habit 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! It‘s rare to find someone who knows that stat. 🙌🏻🍻 I used to chew mine down to stubs. Great color! (edited) 4d
Alora Hahaha 😂 Thank you so much!! 😀 @MrBook 4d
cassiopia I live the the nail color? What brand/color is it? 3d
Alora Thank you so much! It is “coral denominator” - Nicole by opi 💕 3d
