Buenos días, fellow Littens! Good morning to you all ☺️ Buongiorno!

Here is my mini reading plan for the #NovelNovember #Readathon. Thank you so much for hosting, @Andrew65!

#Goals are to
• Complete reading "One Italian Summer" and jump into either "The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina" OR "Our Missing Hearts". Or BOTH! ?

Cont'd in comments ⬇️

Librariana (1 of 2)
• Read "Anne of West Philly" (graphic novel modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables) and then follow it up with either "Enemies" or "Hollow" (the latter is a library loan, so may have to tackle that one first!)
Librariana (2 of 2)
• Read 50 pages of "Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life" (this has proved to be kind of a dip in and out of sort of book; lots of little morsels for consumption!) as well as start both of the other 2 Non-fiction titles below. Spine Poems is a library loan, so gotta dive into that one soon!
• Attempt to read for more than 1 hour a day ?

This is a good overview of how to achieve goals in a concrete time frame. I listened to the audiobook and it would have been better to read the print version because of the number of writing exercises in it. Also if you‘re not a straight white man with a nuclear family, you might struggle to find yourself in the case studies, but the advice is sound.

Bucket List Goal🪣 : Fit more than 10 pieces of Halloween chocolates in my mouth at the same time. I fit 12 pieces. These were part of a Halloween candy care package from my dad 🥰👻

I was going to take a picture for proof but the 12 pieces make me drool 🤤 so “honor system.”

You are welcome #TeamSlaughter - that was a big sacrifice.

Bookwormjillk Thank you for your sacrifice? Now that you are an expert what is the peanut butter to chocolate ratio like on these? 1mo
Sleepswithbooks @Bookwormjillk - When they are all crammed in your mouth like that, I‘d say it seems pretty 50/50 😅 I might need to try again but purely for that scientific reason. 1mo
Bookwormjillk @Sleepswithbooks if you do any analysis let me know 😂 1mo

#WeeklyForecast - I added September's books to the Windowsill of Optimism and actually it doesn't look to bad. This month's #Roll100 numbers were one book I've already read and two books that each start a new series, and I am DONE starting new series until I have finished series!! 😂 So I think I am going to just take a pass on that challenge this month and jump back in in October. I finished Moonlight Cove last night and started The Reef. Next ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) I need to read the Tony Hillerman book - it's the next in the Leaphorn & Chee series and is due back at the library, probably because I've had it for like three months 😆 Other than that, whatever the fates decide should get pulled out of this window next!! Overall this system of working my way through my challenges/TBR is working really well. I think at the end of November, though, I'm going to clear the windowsill entirely, read ⬇ 3mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Christmas/holiday fluff all of December, then start fresh in January. Despite being excited still about all of these books, I'm also already looking forward to that clean slate. Mainly because I have a book-reading-challenge problem 😂

Clare-Dragonfly It‘s not terrible! There are only two horizontal books! 😂 3mo
Cinfhen Clean slate December sounds exciting!!! And it‘s not that far off!!!! #Goals 3mo
TheAromaofBooks @Clare-Dragonfly - Right?? I have definitely made ground since the beginning of August 😂 And a lot of these are shorter and/or children's books so they should be fast reads whenever I get to them. 3mo

I have to work some today, after an already really long week, but at least I got my swim in early and had the pool all to myself! A few minutes of trading to reward myself, then back to the grind. #BFC22 #goals #AwesomeAugust #readathon @wanderinglynn @Andrew65

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks How is this one? I‘m debating starting it today! 4mo
Julsmarshall @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Bit if a slow start but about a third of the way in, I was hooked! 4mo
wanderinglynn 🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4mo
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I really enjoyed this one. 4mo
