#JuneWrapUp

I‘m happy with my June Stats! I think the #readathons & #buddyreads this month helped push me along to completing 13 books (some finished/others started & finished) with 3 books still in process at about 40% complete.

I read 2 audio or part audio books, 6 e-books & 5-print. 4 were library books, 1 for book tour review, 1 NetGalley #ARC 4 #buddyreads with #PemberLittens #SundayBuddyRead & #SummerHeat

I also completed my ⬇️

DebinHawaii …library‘s #2022SummerReading Program, Kindle‘s Spring Reading Program & took part in #JoysOfJune & #4in20 readathons & #BigJuneReadathon

The Verifiers, The Catch Me If You Can, Unlikely Animals & My Fair Fellow were my top 4 favorites. Ironically, the tagged book is the only one I didn‘t like.🤷🏻‍♀️

Thank you to all the tagged readathon & buddyread hosts!🤗

I‘m pretty happy with my #JoysofJuneReadathon results. I didn‘t set pages or reading time goals & I‘m too lazy to go do the math on Beanstack 😉but I did most of what I wanted to do: finished or started & finished the top row of books including one unplanned, kept up with my 2 current #buddyreads on the left & started the 2 books on the right-about 60% through Unlikely Animals (💙it so far) & 15% through My Good Fellow (My Fair Lady retelling).

I hope to finish “L'antico Egitto“ by T. Wilkinson and “Il transfert, il dono, la cura“ by M. Fabbri for the #bigjunereadathon , as well as keep reading “L'amore nell'ebraismo“ by C. Chalier and “La banalità del bene“ by E. Deaglio for the same challenge and #bookspinbingo and #americanhistoricalassociation2022readingchallenge as well as #ayearofjewishreadingchallenge

thereadingpal @Cinfhen thank you! I found that challenge on Storygraph. Joined a bit late because it started at the beginning of the Jewish new year and I joined like two days ago LOL but as I'm participating in Jewish life and starting the process of conversion to Reform Judaism, I thought it would be a good way to get deeper into it ☺️ I can share the prompts if you want! 4w
Cinfhen Sweet!! Welcome to the tribe ☺️ I have storygraph so I‘ll check it out. If I have any trouble finding it I‘ll definitely let you know. I try to read a decent amount of #JewishLit so that hashtag really caught my eye 4w
thereadingpal @Cinfhen thank you so much! And Chag Shavuot Sameach ☺️ I'm trying to read more as well, and I searched for tags on here but I'm still so new (joined 3 days ago i think) that I'm having a hard time finding the right tags xD 4w
Clwojick You‘ve got this! 🌼✨💪🏻 4w
Cinfhen Ah, a newbie to Litsy too!!! Welcome 🤗 try #JewishLit but im not sure how often it gets used / as far as Litsy I know there are some folks who are part of the #LitsyWelcomeWagon maybe @Chrissyreadit ?!! I see you found the amazing @Clwojick and @TheAromaofBooks im just tagging a few others who might be super helpful @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheBookHippie @LitsyEvents @Andrew65 4w
Cinfhen I know there are MANY MANY MORE 4w
Cinfhen And chag sameach to you!!! Have you eaten your cheesecake ??? 4w
Cinfhen There are lots of other fun stuff going on here / #CampLitsy #Booked2022 @Eggs runs a monthly challenge and there are tons of #BuddyReads im co-hosting #SummerHeat a group read of this book the week of June 17-19 4w
Cinfhen Which of course you‘re more than welcome to join!! I‘m getting ready to go out for a Shavuot meal but I can share more info later 💚 4w
thereadingpal @Cinfhen thank you so much! I haven't eaten cheesecake because I don't live in s supportive household BUT I did go to the morning fiction and in half an hour there's an online international lesson with Ravs speaking that I'm attending. Thank you do much for the info and have fun at the Shavuot meal! 4w
thereadingpal @Clwojick yes! Thank you!! 4w
Chrissyreadit Welcome to litsy!!! The link in my bio has info from the original #litsywelcomewagon this Ian app where it‘s good to follow as many people as you can and then unfollow or mute if it‘s not your taste- also if you look at book reviews of books you‘ve enjoyed and follow those people you will get many with similar interests. 4w
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen thanks for the tag! 4w
thereadingpal @Chrissyreadit Thank you! I'm trying to do that, following active people and searching for books or tags that interest me. I'm still not completely at ease with the site (I'm slow with technology, shhh) but I'm working through it! 4w
TheAromaofBooks Good luck with your reading this week!! 4w
Eggs Welcome to Litsy 💗🥳📚 4w
thereadingpal @Eggs thank you! 4w
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Thanks for the tag 😊 Welcome @thereadingpal 🤗 We do two readathons a month. A 9 day Choose Your Own Goal Readathon that usually starts on the second Saturday of the month, and a four day #20in4 Readathon over the last weekend of each month. Would be great to have you join us on either. 4w
thereadingpal @Andrew65 can you explain the 20in4 more in detail to me? I've seen it around but I've not understood how it works 😅 4w
Andrew65 @thereadingpal The aim is to try to either read 20 hours or 20 chapters over the four days of the Readathon. Although it‘s very relaxed and informal so you are free to set your own time or chapter target., or just take part without a goal or target. It runs Friday - Monday inclusive. This month it will be 24th - 27th June. Main thing is just to enjoy reading books with others and share your progress over the four days by posting. (edited) 4w
thereadingpal @Andrew65 oh nice!!! I'll try to participate :D 4w
Andrew65 @thereadingpal If you want to the part, let me know and ‘I‘ll add you to the people I tag in when posting about the Readathon. All welcome 😁 4w
thereadingpal @Andrew65 please do tag me!! 4w
Andrew65 @thereadingpal Think we posted t the same time, I‘ll add you to the tags 😊 Be great to have you with us. 4w

My #BigJuneReadathon goals: There are 15 books on my June #TBR & it is unlikely I will be able to read all of them, but some are in progress already. Top row is f#buddyreads #sundaybuddyread #PemberLittens & #summerheat + at least starting a reread of A Cook‘s Tour (June/July pick for my virtual foodie book club). Middle row has 2 books in progress, a short book of essays & 2 for book tour review. Bottom row are the wild cards I hope to get to ⬇️

DebinHawaii …but I am a moody reader, so who knows what other books might pop up. Otherwise my goals are to complete my library‘s Summer Reading Program: #OceansOfPossibilities & finish the Kindle Spring Reading Challenge & really, just read every day in June. I didn‘t really set any big annual reading goals this year. 📚📚📚📚📚 1mo
Clwojick Great goals! I really enjoyed Seven Days in June. 💙 1mo

I‘m going to try for at least 20 hours, but at least finish Taste for virtual foodie book club, catch up with my #PemberLittens #buddyreads start 2 books for review & at least 1 (probably the tagged) for the #AsianPacificHeritageMonthchallenge

DebinHawaii … the Emma a project is just for fun—the newest book in the Rajes series. 🤗 1mo

After managing to avoid it for so long & being scheduled to get a second booster next week, COVID finally got me. 😳😩🤧😷🤒🤕🥴

I had a scratchy throat Thursday into Friday & by Friday afternoon it hit me hard & I tested positive. The worst part is the headache making reading not so fun, so it‘s napping & Netflix today & likely getting a bit behind in my #buddyreads

Aims42 Ughhhh, I hope you start to feel better soon!! My husband and I succumbed to it this past week as well. Scratchy throats had us thinking it was post-nasal drip from allergies, but our tests said otherwise 😳🙄 Feel better!! ♥️ 2mo
DebinHawaii @Aims42 Thank you. 🤗 Hope you & your husband feel better too. 2mo
Patchshank That sucks. Hopefully you'll feel better soon. 2mo

My #TBR for May is once again, way too ambitious, but it‘s good to have goals. 4 #buddyreads for #sundaybuddyread & #pemberlittens & Taste for my bi-monthly virtual foodie bookclub (e-book & audiobook). A few titles I‘m going to try to get to for the #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth challenge through my library & I‘m on a June book tour for the 5th book in Ellery Adam‘s Secret Book & Scone Society Series & I need to read 2-4 before it.🤷🏻‍♀️📚
