Planning on joining in the #OutstandingOctober #readathon to get more #Scarathlon2022 points for #TeamMonsterMash.

I‘m not sure how much I will accomplish this weekend as I got my 2nd COVID booster & a flu shot yesterday late afternoon & today I have a big headache. My goals for the whole event are keep up with the 4 #buddyreads I am involved in & start & finish a few more books on my TBR pictured. 🧟‍♀️

Bookzombie I had a headache and some fever the next day. I hope you feel better quickly! 1mo
DebinHawaii @Bookzombie Thanks! 🤗 No fever so far on this one so hopefully the headache will pass soon. 1mo
Andrew65 Best of luck with the readathon and the jab 😁 1mo

Can't believe that I finished two books last week. But I did. One I really enjoyed and the other one was a bit of a slog

The top two I am just whizzing through, especially Still Alice. The books in the middle, well lets just say that they are slow but stead reads. The bottom two are #buddyreads and will likely work on this week. As for Upcoming Reads, they are mainly ones that I am planning on reading ⬇️

melissajayne but I have to read The Henna Artist for my book club on Wednesday evening. I have ordered and pre-ordered the next two books in the series. Horseman is a #buddyread (for which one, I can't recall) and the other three are books I am hoping to get to or at least start. Happy reading Littens. (edited) 2mo

My first of 2 TBRs for Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash 🧟‍♂️🐺🧛🏻🧙‍♀️👻 Will I read all of these… absolutely not! Although the top row is set because it includes the team book & #buddyreads with #PemberLittens, #SundayBuddyRead & #FearfulFall
The tagged book I pre-ordered as it comes out 10/4 & is a favorite series I discovered during last year‘s games. (I‘ll link the first book below). The others are all contenders as I‘m a moody reader!😉

DebinHawaii First book in series of tagged book (Sam Quinn) (edited) 2mo

August was a tough month for reading time but I managed to get 7 books finished & I started a couple of others. I liked everything I read & The Book of Cold Cases, The Traveling Cat Chronicles & The Half-Life of Ruby Fielding were my favorites. 4 books were for #buddyreads for #SundayBuddyRead #PemberLittens & #FoodandLit #Japan & 3 were ARCs for review & the #AugustARCReadathon

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!🤗
TheBookHippie Lets hope for a good month !!! HA. 5mo
DebinHawaii @TheBookHippie 🤞🏼🙏🏼🍀🤣 5mo

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).

This is my #weeklyforecast 😁
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

See All 28 Comments
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! 6mo
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 6mo
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 6mo
Clwojick You‘ve got this! 🌼✨💪🏻 6mo
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 6mo
Cinfhen I know there are MANY MANY MORE 6mo
Cinfhen And chag sameach to you!!! Have you eaten your cheesecake ??? 6mo

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 💚 6mo
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! 6mo
thereadingpal @Clwojick yes! Thank you!! 6mo
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. 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen thanks for the tag! 6mo
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! 6mo
TheAromaofBooks Good luck with your reading this week!! 6mo
Eggs Welcome to Litsy 💗🥳📚 6mo
thereadingpal @Eggs thank you! 6mo
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. 6mo
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 😅 6mo
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) 6mo
thereadingpal @Andrew65 oh nice!!! I'll try to participate :D 6mo
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 😁 6mo
thereadingpal @Andrew65 please do tag me!! 6mo
Andrew65 @thereadingpal Think we posted t the same time, I‘ll add you to the tags 😊 Be great to have you with us. 6mo

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. 📚📚📚📚📚 6mo
Clwojick Great goals! I really enjoyed Seven Days in June. 💙 6mo
ShyBookOwl Loved Wordslut! So smart and funny. 6mo
