Y‘all know it‘s cold (14 F/ -10 C) when I‘m actually drinking hot coffee! This is the mug I won in the last #24in48 where they gave prizes. It‘s my current favorite. Oh and we only have a bit of snow so far, but it‘s supposed to snow all day. Stay warm everyone!

batsy Love the mug! 2y

BarbaraBB Lovely mug! Such a cozy picture! 2y
Megabooks @batsy thanks! 2y
Megabooks @Bookwomble I generally like the cold but when it gets this far below freezing I‘m not as big a fan. Still, I prefer it to weather in the 30s C range! 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen thanks! I finally pulled out the blanket and put on a long-sleeved shirt. The local news is going crazy. 😂 2y
Megabooks @BarbaraBB thank you! I‘ve got a book, blanket, and TV...in that order of importance! 😉❤️ 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen the ebook of Memoirs of a Geisha is 1.99 on kindle today, if you want to switch back and forth. 2y
Cinfhen Hahaha, you KNOW ME!! I bought it already!!! Thanks for thinking of me 2y

Last weekend pushed me ahead of a normal reading month with the #24in48. I don‘t think I‘ve ever covered this much of my bingo board without using all my free spaces 😊.

I‘m not quite finished with Detransition, Baby. It‘s my favorite books so far this year, and I‘m betting it ends up on my best of the year list!

Cinfhen So much praise for this book.... now I‘m getting #FoMo 2y
Megabooks It‘s a great book!! 2y
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Looking great!! 2y

My last review for a #24in48 read.

I felt the story was okay, and at times comical, but it just missed something, making it a so-so read for me. The Queen rediscovers her love of reading, and the Royal household and staff respond in a not so positive way. Book mentions within the narrative are interesting.

Cinfhen Sorry it didn‘t live up to bookish expectations/ it sounds delightful 2y
Librarybelle @Cinfhen It was humorous to see the Queen focus more on her book than other queenly obligations. 2y

Before the Coffee Gets Cold | Toshikazu Kawaguchi

Pickpick

This is a sweet story of second chances and, dare I say it, the power of coffee. In an obscure cafe in Tokyo, those who wish to visit a past occurrence can do so...but, there are rules. Lots of rules. And severe consequences if the coffee gets cold...

I enjoyed this one. The characters are entertaining, and I admittedly shed a few tears. Many thanks to @BarbaraBB for sending me this one for #Japan and #ReadingAsia2021 . Also, ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Cinfhen Agreed, this book was sweet and robust 💜 2y

I started with this book for #24in48 , and I am so glad I did! This has been on my radar since it came out, and it lived up to my expectations. May writes a candid and thoughtful look at self-acceptance. For those who suffer, this is for you. Learn how to cope and, most importantly, accept your “winter” times and know how to best receive the tools you need to “weather the storm.” It was a comforting read, and one I desperately needed. So good!

Crazeedi I definitely know about 'wintering' I've been there, recognize and actually sometimes I just go with the flow and accept!! 2y
LeeRHarry Just requested it from my library 😊 2y

Librarybelle @Crazeedi Yes! It‘s so important to know how to work with your wintering periods and not let those who say “it‘ll get better” or “just snap out of it” push you down. 2y

Witchcraft | Jayne Ann Krentz

Mehso-so

This is an older novel by Krentz, and while her formulaic structure and pacing in her later novels is evident here, there is some polishing needed for the overall package. I really disliked Cavenaugh, the male lead who is supposed to be tough, but his attitude at times left me feeling he‘s a bit controlling. Nevertheless, a good listen during the #24in48 #readathon . A quick romantic suspense from one of the masters of the genre.

Was too sleepy to post this last night — my final time count for #24in48, and a picture of the three books I finished in print. Not pictured is the one audiobook I finished (Chatter) or the other one I started (The Warmth of Other Suns). Really enjoyed this readathon!

Although I didn‘t make 24 hours, I am very happy with my #24in48. I had a busy weekend so over 14 hours was more than I hoped for during this readathon.

PurpleyPumpkin Great job! 👏🏽 2y
Mollyanna @PurpleyPumpkin Thank you 😊 2y
