I ended up having limited reading time over the past weekend so I didn‘t make it all the way to 24 hours. I did manage to finish two of the three books I was reading, though, so I am happy about that. #24B42019

TheReadingMermaid Yah! Congrats sweetie! 👏🏻👏🏻🎉🎉🎉 13mo
Andrew65 Well done. That sounds a success 👏👏😊👍 13mo

My #24B42019 was a bit of a dud.Between a project that took hold of me, social obligations popping up,& a book sale , across all those days I got about 9 hours in. Finished Ms. Obama‘s book, & the magical The Faces in the Crowd. Thanks to @Andrew65 & @TheReadingMermaid for hosting, maybe in 2019 I will master the #readathon 😂 & proof to @Cinfhen that not only has Udall‘s book been on my TBR since publication, it‘s signed! 😂

TheReadingMermaid You are most welcome sweetheart! Hope you'll join us again for our next readathon the last weekend of January 🤗 13mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! The ink still looks fresh ❣️❣️❣️ 13mo
arubabookwoman Coincidence: I just finished The Lonely Polygamist a few weeks ago, after it had languished several years on the TBR shelf. It was v. good. 13mo

Andrew65 Well done on the reading you did get in, sounds a very busy schedule. 👏👏😊 13mo
Leftcoastzen @arubabookwoman It‘s odd though, looked Udall up on the inter web thingy . Udall hasn‘t been writing.I just thought in 8 years he would have written something else. (edited) 13mo
jenniferajanes Sounds like you did an awesome job on the readathon, especially with your other obligations! 🙌🏻 12mo

I unfortunately flopped on my reading for #24B42019
Between dr appointments and my vision being weird from my rarely worn glasses it was just easier to veg out on TV. It‘s okay I‘m healing and motivated for the next #24B4Monday

Thanks you @TheReadingMermaid and @Andrew65 for hosting this weekend and all the positive vibes and support.

Andrew65 10+ hours is a great job given the issues you‘ve had. Well done on achieving this amongst the trials and tribulations. Hope things are improving. 👏👏👏👏 (edited) 13mo

Not bad! But not as much as I'd hoped. I ended up having a friend over last night for movies and pizza, and as much as I love reading, I think friends are more important. :)

Well, with 1 hour left in the day, I finally reached 24 hours!!! #24B42019 I have never made it to 24 before (and I‘m sure the extra days in the readathon helped!) so I‘m especially happy with my accomplishment! I often read multiple books at a time so here are my stats from the weekend 😁
Books started: 2
Books read from start to finish: 3
In-progress books I made progress on: 2
Graphic novels read from start to finish: 2

TheReadingMermaid You did so great!!!👏🏻👏🏻🎉🎉🎉 13mo
Andrew65 Brilliant! 👏👏👏🙌🙌👍😊🥳🍾🥂 13mo

Winter Solstice | Elin Hilderbrand

I finished the #24B42019 readathon because today counts! Yay! Started and ended with Elin Hilderbrand. I liked Winter Solstice so much more than Winter Storms even though it was much sadder. Even Ava, while still irritating, wasn‘t as bad as she was in the other books. Of these books, My Sister the Serial Killer was my favorite; The Witches Tree was my least favorite.
