I‘m going to go ahead and post this. I didn‘t quite make 24 hours because I took a lovely 3 hour nap today.

I‘m stopping now because I have a bookshelf to put together. I‘ll probably read a bit before I go to bed, but I fall asleep 😴 a lot reading, so before I mess up my timer...Happy reading to everyone else in #Litsypartyof1 #24B4Monday #MrBook1inaMillion

Andrew65 A fantastic time, well done. 🍾🥂🥳👏👏👏😊🙌 Thanks for playing along. 👍 1mo

My cheese plate for lunch. Continuing to read The Library Book. It has already had me tearing up several times.

There is still a possibility that I can make 24h but I doubt it. Finished off this audiobook this morning and now I have more questions. But I have to renew my library card first.

For the rest of my #bookreport I read at least 200 pages of Ninth House, 9 picture books, Ihate Fairyland Book 2, and listened to half of the Adventures Guild with the boys. Time for the rest of that book as we put together legos.

And finally I am starting an actual book from my TBR pile for this #readathon 😂

Also, does it drive anyone else crazy that there is a non-removable “sticker” in the middle of the cover? Ugh, why couldn‘t they print it in one of the corners.

#NFNov #Litsypartyof1 #24B4Monday #MrBook1inaMillion

Andrew65 Yes!!!! 1mo
squirrelbrain Loved this one! ❤️ 1mo
MidnightBookGirl I hate super sticky stickers! We use stickers at the bookstore to let people know that they're signed or staff picks, but they pop right off with no residue (although with matte finishes we just put the stickers on a bookmark that sticks out of the pages). Price stickers especially annoy me. 1mo

These recipes are inspired by Jane Austen‘s letters + novels. Many of the recipes are reworkings from cookbooks from that time. For each section, she includes excepts from Austen‘s letters/novels.

This is a lovely cookbook with a cloth cover, thick matte pages, + numerous color photos. There are informative two pages descriptions on things like mealtimes (General Tilney), servants, table arrangements. The best recipes are the deserts and breads.

CoffeeCatsBooks Also, when I was ordering this, it looked like the publisher is putting out a new blue hardcover edition, so I am not sure if that one will also have the cloth cover. 1mo
Andrew65 Sounds great but likely to make you hungry. 😂 1mo

These are Baked Compote Apples. The Bates‘ twice-baked apples 🍎 would have been left for 2-3 nights in a baker‘s cooling brick oven, but these can be made in a conventional oven.

Loved this retelling of the Santa Claus myth. His white wolf, Lilli, was my favorite. 🐺💕. Great art in this.

The graphic novel itself is really nice with gold edges and metallic etching.

Round 2 of defending my snack, nacho tots, from Kitcat. Drink: Blood Orange 🍊 soda.

Finished all my school 🏫 work for the week, so now I can just enjoy the #readathon 📚! Excited to start Klaus as I‘ve seen a lot of good posts about it.

jb72 LOL I know what you mean. I usually have 2 dogs and my Mallie cat staring at me for snacks. 1mo
CoffeeCatsBooks @jb72 😂 If I am eating cheese, Kitcat will reach out and tap me with her paw, like “hello don‘t forget about your furry companion.” 1mo

Just lovely.

Loosely a story of friendship between a boy, mole, fox, and horse. It is also a message about being kind to yourself and others. It is filled with beautiful ink drawings and watercolor. Really, I would love prints of some of the illustrations.

Andrew65 A great illustration and comment. 😊 1mo

This covers 40 black women who were pioneers. Each woman has one page explaining her life and then a full page illustration of her.

The entires are inspiring although some are a bit heartbreaking. The illustrations are charming. Also, I liked that the book was arranged chronologically as it helped making connections. The back includes a list of 12 more women she wanted to include.
