Exquisite writing. Poetic yet minimalistic. This story‘s strength lies in its stillness. I‘m not sure if it‘s because I‘m Korean, but I thought the author captured the silent hardships of the MC perfectly. Koreans are known for their “han” and especially Korean men of this time, a time of war, embody this deep silent ache. This short book is understated but focused.

This was the 2nd book I finished for Dewey‘s #readthon.

1. Still thinking about it - I do work on Saturdays, so I have to plan around that...
2. I‘m more of a mood reader, but I do make TBR lists that I don‘t really stick to. 😁
3. Coke and chocolate 🍫
4. Night owl 🦉
5. No, this is my first time.
6. Mysteries and thrillers for #teamslaughter 🕵🏻‍♀️
7. Physical and audio

Clwojick First timer! 😍I suggest getting in extra time by listening to your audiobook while you're doing any sort of chores. I have my headphones in while i cook, vacuum, do the dishes, fold laundry etc... and it really adds to the total time! Plus it makes doing chores less boring. lol (edited) 3w
Charityann @Clwojick I usually listen to an audiobook while I cook and when I‘m driving, but I‘ll have to try listening while I‘m doing all the chores. Thanks! 😊 3w

Good morning! Anyone feel like Zeus who wants to just laze about? I‘m reading two books right now for #24in48 and hoping to finish them soon - Paper Girls and Bad Blood. I‘ve finished 4 total and have 4 others on my stack I may or may not get to. Brewing some tea and getting ready to #readthon it up!

This tiny book is so delightful! I‘m flying through its short stories about a murderous octogenarian.

Thanks to everyone that took part and all the encouragement from everyone.

EadieB @Andrew65 So close but still amazing for a busy weekend! 6mo
Andrew65 @EadieB overall pleased because it has been so busy, but frustrated to just miss 24 hours! 😬 6mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I would consider it to be 24 hours since you are only 13 minutes short! That‘s really only about 5 or 6 Pgs short for me and less for you. (edited) 6mo

Now I finished the #24B4Monday #readthon with 4 hours and 7 minutes and I'm happy that I also participated this month. It wasn't my worst resulat although I visited yesterday and today my friends and had less time to read but many time to eat wonderful cakes 😂😉. I begun a new #audiobook (tagged) and I'm loving it.

Thx to @TheReadingMermaid and @Andrew65

Ok @Andrew65 is so motivating so I'll participate at the #24B4Monday #readthon this weekend. I'll travel the most time, but some hours I'll spend on reading the tagged book. Thx @TheReadingMermaid and @Andrew65 for hosting.


Andrew65 Yes! 😍 Wonderful to have you with us again no matter how much or how little you can read. Just have fun with the rest of us. And thanks 👍😁 6mo
