The roads are stilly icy and there‘s a three day weekend to finish my household chores and school work, so there will be plenty of reading time today. I finally finished my #CovertoCover book last night, and I‘m going to switch between audiobooks while working on the puzzle or doing housework. I also need read this #LitsyBookClub choice that I may have waited until the last minute to start.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've tried to read Under the Volcano, but could not get into it. Audio is probably a good option. 1w
Daisey @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘ve listened to some of it and I‘d have to say I‘m not sure I‘m absorbing much. 1w
CafeMom I love puzzles, how fun. 1w
Daisey @CafeMom I haven‘t put together a puzzle on my own in forever; it‘s too distracting from the other things I feel I need to do. Over Christmas I started on one with family and didn‘t get to finish it, so it seemed a good idea for this long weekend. 1w

Had fun reading both Mr. Penumbra books.Also enjoyed reading Sourdough both for #LitsyBookClub & #CoverToCover now I‘ve got to find Robin Sloann‘s Kickstarter book, Annabel Scheme! 🥖 📚 🥖

Daisey Someday I have got to get around to reading more of his books! 2w
tpixie Ajax is about 2 hours. It‘s a prequel. 24 hours was kind of fun. Light reads. Easy farming listens!! 2w

This year, I‘m looking at my reading goals as more participatory. I will continue to set a 100 book goal on Goodreads, but the others are mostly about reading with others instead of a specific list.

I will also continue to track reading of library and owned books, but I‘m not setting any kind of goal.

Saturday morning plans:
#HolidayRecipeSwap card finalized and dropped in the mail
✅ Coffee and another #CovertoCover book read
🔷 Catching up on Sauron Defeated with #FellowshipofTolkien
🔷 Making Christmas fruitcake while listening to audiobooks

JazzFeathers 👏👏👏 I should try to bake a fruit cake too 😆 2mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers It‘s a family tradition that I took over a couple of years ago when my grandma passed away. It‘s a great way to remember her and to get my holiday season started. 2mo
jewright So glad you still make the fruitcake! 2mo
JazzFeathers @Daisey Those family traditions are the best. I took up my grampa tradition of the Christmas menu. 2mo

I got up early this morning to make pumpkin scones for school, and I hoped to fit in a few pages of reading along with my own breakfast. However, by the time I cleaned up my kitchen mess and prepped my just finished #CovertoCover book to mail, it was time to leave. I did fit in a few pages tonight, and I‘m continuing to enjoy my slow progress through the versions of the story of Numenor.

#FellowshipofTolkien

JazzFeathers I'm really, really enjoying these evolutions of the stories. In yesterday's night commentary, Christopher theories that at that stage, his father was considering different ways to revise his Silmarillion, especially in light of the (then still) unfinished Lord of the Rings. It's fascinating and quite unexpected. 2mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers I made my way through more of this last night and did find it fascinating to consider. I love how Tolkien put so much of his thinking down on paper. 2mo

Reading a few chapters of my current #CovertoCover book chosen by @Marmie7 before bed tonight. I‘m behind on getting it read, but I think I‘m close to the point where it‘s going to get really hard to put down.

Caroline2 Ohhh what a beautiful bookmark! 😯 6mo
Daisey @Caroline2 Thank you! It came as a gift through this postal book club. 6mo
