#ChildrensClassicRead2022 #October

I‘m a little late in posting, but as I continue with our November read, I found a couple King Arthur related books on my bookshelf! King Arthur for Boys I found at a used bookstore in town, and the Book of Merlyn is a book I read as a child/tween. It was to be part of The Once and Future King, but was not in the final printing. ( I also read TOAFK as a child, but cannot find my copy.)

TheBookHippie Oh how fun!!! I admit I looked up others as well as took many movies out of the library !! @UwannaPublishme did movies as well I believe!! I just love it! 2w
tpixie @TheBookHippie I need to watch some movies! 2w
UwannaPublishme Yes! It‘s been a King Arthur movie month for me. I‘ve watched 3 so far: with Clive Owen and Kiera Knightly (so-so), with Robert Taylor and Ava Gardner 🙌🏻 and Excalibur with Helen Mirreen, Liam Neeson and Patrick Stewart—my favorite! Let me know if you have more to recommend! 😁❤️🎬 2w

#October #20in4 #Readathon Check-In: 6 hours.

A BIT short of 20 hours, right? 😁
Well, for me, the #20in4 #readathons are a nudge to me to make more time for reading as on any usual workday - on a 'normal' day? 30 mins daily, if I'm lucky... 🙄
So, 6 hours aren't THAT bad, if you think about it... 😉

#Halloween #autumnreading #autumnalvibes #gothic

Andrew65 Well done, an excellent total taking everything into account. Thanks for playing along. 👏👏👏🙌🥳🍾🥂 3w
Yuki_Onna @Andrew65 Thank you! 😊 And thank you for putting me on the tag list! 3w

#BookspinBingo Board of October. No Bingo 🙄

Nevertheless I'm quite pleased because I managed to get my #October #Bookspin pick as well as my #September #Doublespin (24. Doghead) off the board. Plus a few additional hours for #Scarathlon2022 #TeamSlaughter 😊

My #Bookspin list for November is ready, by the way, but I might not manage to post it before tonight...

@TheAromaOfBooks @Clwojick

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Fantastic month!!! 3w

#BookSpinBingo #BookSpin #DoubleSpin #October

Perhaps it just wasn‘t the right time for me to read The Silent Ones. 🚫
I did really enjoy The Guise of Another. In fact, I read the next two in the series during October as well.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Great progress!!! 3w

Making it just in the knick of time 😁😊

Here's my #October #BookSpinBingo board... and there were NO bingos. But! Five books were completed (yay!) and a new one was started (One Italian Summer) for the October #TBRtarot prompt.

It's still my hope to complete this last one here very soon and look forward to November's selection.

@CBee @TheAromaofBooks
