A Little Hatred | Joe Abercrombie

Well. The last readathon I tried was for @MrBook #litsypartyofone a couple weeks ago. I dutifully started my timer and my book. Read my first book and then got an unexpected family visit. I think by the time I remembered the timer it was about two days later. However this time I am stuck in bed in a cast so I‘ll try it again! (Never give up!). Thanks to hosts @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 and @jb72

gradcat Have you broken your leg? Or is that a sock? I can‘t tell for sure, but that looks like a cast to me. So sorry if it is...but the good news? Maybe you‘ll have lots of down time for the Readathon. Good luck, and I hope it doesn‘t hurt too much! ♥️♥️♥️ 2w
Cinfhen Hi!!!!! How are you holding up???? Email me.....I‘m waiting for the rest of the story 😘😘 2w
squirrelbrain Oh no, poor you! Plenty of time for reading though... 😘 2w

Emilymdxn Hope you‘re doing okay! I hope the time resting helps your recovery, and books and Litsy keep you entertained 2w
Bklover @gradcat @squirrelbrain @emilymdxm I had surgery on both feet last Friday. Only the right foot is in a cast- have to keep weight off it for eight weeks. Not much pain and my kids are waiting on me hand and foot. I‘m kind of assuming I will tire of this soon. Looking forward to lots of reading time for now though 😘😘 2w
Bklover @Cinfhen I haven‘t forgotten! I‘ll be writing you soon. Have fun this weekend with your roommate! (edited) 2w
gradcat @Bklover I‘m sorry for you—two feet at the same time—wow! But please try to enjoy the “my kids are waiting on me hand and foot”—you deserve it! ♥️👍😅 2w
EadieB @Bklover Sorry you are laid up in bed after surgery but the good thing is lots of reading time and your children waiting on you. But like you said 'could get old.' At least pain isn't too bad as pain could be very uncomfortable. Can you use crutches? Can you sit up in a chair when you get tired of laying down? 2w
Copwithabook That seriously sucks- glad you can see that very bright silver lining of reading time! 2w
MamaGina I completely empathize—I broke my leg earlier this year and was non-weight bearing for three months, it‘s not fun at all! I wish you fast & complete healing 🤓 2w
Bklover @EadieB I have a knee scooter and a wheelchair. Both from a neighbor. The wheelchair is difficult because my leg hangs down which causes pain. I LOVE my knee scooter (google it if you haven‘t seen one!). I‘m really meant to keep it elevated pretty much all the time though so I‘ll have lots of bed-time! I had a bone fusion in my right foot which takes quite a while to heal. I am sooooo glad it‘s done though!😘 2w
Bklover @Copwithabook Thanks for the kind words. We‘ll see how optimistic I‘m feeling in a few weeks! I have a bed full of pets keeping me company though❤️😉 2w
Bklover @MamaGina Oh no! So glad you have healed up! Thanks for the kindness- this is a very good time to have Litsy friends to keep me company!💗 2w
jb72 Oh no! Wishing you fast healing vibes! Years ago I broke my leg and dislocated my ankle. Two surgeries later I have a plate in my leg. The whole flat on back got old quick. I‘m so glad you are getting some read time in this weekend! 2w
Bklover @jb72 Thanks! I can‘t imagine what non-readers do! 2w
Andrew65 Sorry to hear about the cast. Good luck with the Readathon. 😊 2w
EadieB @Bklover Probably watch TV. 2w

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 😂😭💅🏼💅🏼

#WinterGames #LitsyPartyOfOne #TIL #24B4Monday #currentlyreading

jb72 Great job! I finally broke that habit about ten years ago. 3w

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) 3w
Kaila-ann Congrats!! That‘s a tough habit to break. 3w
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 3w
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 😂😭 3w
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) 3w
Alora Hahaha 😂 Thank you so much!! 😀 @MrBook 3w
cassiopia I live the the nail color? What brand/color is it? 3w
Alora Thank you so much! It is “coral denominator” - Nicole by opi 💕 3w

#gratefulreads #shortstory I got sidetracked while hosting #Litsypartyofone and have missed a few days. I‘m back on track now! I don‘t read many short stories, but I did order this holiday story featuring one of my favorite characters. I‘ll wait until closer to Christmas to read it, tho.

Well, I didn‘t quite make it to 24 hours, but I‘m so happy with how much I got to read this weekend for the #mrbook1inamillion readathon! Since getting our puppies in June and July, I haven‘t had much time to relax and read...I really tried to put a lot of time in this weekend and (with the help of audiobooks) I was able to make quite a dent 📖🐶🐶 @MrBook @Rachel.Rencher @Lucas.Rencher #litsypartyofone #24B4Monday

MrBook Very well done!!! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻🔥🔥🔥 4w
Andrew65 That‘s still a great time! 👏👏👏👍 4w
UnidragonFrag Audiobooks definitely help out! Congrats! 🎉 4w

Ok, so apparently I was NOT in a reading mood this weekend so I didn't come close to 24hrs but I did finish 3 books I had on the go and started a new one....plus binged WAY too much Veronica Mars....so I'm happy 😊

Thanks for the awesome #readathon and congrats @MrBook

I finished the #MrBook1InAMillion #readathon with 11 hours and 5 minutes of reading time.

Congratulations again to @MrBook on his spectacular achievement, and thanks to #LitsyPartyOfOne and #24B4Monday for running the event! @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid @jb72

I started Louise Penny‘s new Inspector Gamache series. This photo is of the brand new Champlain bridge in Montreal, next to the old one that Gamache peers over in one scene.

Crazeedi ❤❤ the Gamache series!! 4w
kwmg40 @Crazeedi My feelings exactly. Such a great series! 4w
jb72 Pretty cool 😎 it looks similar to the Sunshine Skyway bridge in Florida. 4w

Andrew65 What a great picture with the old against the new. I bit like the recently built Queensferry Crossing Bridge in Edinburgh compared to the old Forth Bridges. 4w
Andrew65 A great time, well done and thanks for taking part. 👏👏👏😊👍 4w
kwmg40 @jb72 @Andrew65 It is an interesting picture indeed. My parents live south of Montreal, and recently, we crossed the new bridge, which was a strange experience with the old one right next to it. We did not get out of the car to look over the bridge like Inspector Gamache did! 4w
Andrew65 @kwmg40 This website shows the three bridges in Edinburgh in close proximity. https://www.heliair.com/store/edinburgh-and-bridges-helicopter-tour/ 4w
kwmg40 @Andrew65 Great photo. I would love to visit Edinburgh one day, especially after having read so many murder mysteries set there. 3w
Andrew65 @kwmg40 Think it would be my favourite city. 3w
