Finished with this book and my first goal for #20in4

This book was so enthralling and I‘m amazed at home much happens to Will in a minute or two. I love the way it was told in verse. It was amazing.

Andrew65 Great 🥳👏👏👏 19h

Trying something a little different with my #20in4 goals this month. Made a specific list and showing what I‘m currently reading going in. Let‘s hope I make it 🤞🏾

Happy reading everyone

#MarvellousMay Wrapup:

It was a very up and down reading week for me. These numbers are not super impressive but since May is historically the month I read the least I‘m pretty proud.

Books Finished: 4
Pages Read: 732
Hours Read: 16:53

Thank you @Andrew65 for hosting and the encouragement.

Irregular #MarvellousMay update:

Two books completed. Three currently reading even though I just realized on is cut off of my graphic. 🤷🏾‍♀️ Over 600 pages read. No reviews written. A hopefully peaceful weekend ahead to maybe finish up two books and focus on reading in general.

I hope you are all having fun and reading tons.

Andrew65 Going well 👏👏👏 1w

The book was funny enough but too long and the humor got less funny as I moved through pages. Would make and excellent coffee table or rest room book.

It was not a great weekend for reading. In fact I read nothing at all on Saturday. It was a great weekend for being a loaf and bingeing TV. 🤷🏾‍♀️ I‘m not worried. I still have the whole week ahead of me.

The middle of the month definitely popped up quickly for me. My plans for the Readathon are to finish the books I‘m reading and then rely on my bingo spinner for my next pick. I also want to try to start using my timer again as I miss my stats but we‘ll see if that happens.

Thank you @Andrew65 for hosting and I hope everyone gets lots of pages read.

Did I download a less than 2 hour audiobook just do I could get bingo one day before the month ends? You bet your sweet bippy I did.
April is now one for the record books. Completed my #Bookspin #Doublespin and got a #Bookspinbingo. #KillinIt

I did not do a great job updating for #AwesomeApril but I did read everyday. I was 4 pages short of my goal but I just could not keep my eyes open a moment longer. 🤦🏾‍♀️

I finished 4 books (all but one previously started) and had fun.

Thank you @Andrew65 for hosting. See you next month.

#AwesomeApril Update: I‘ve lost a bit of momentum but I blame that on my current audiobook being more academic than I expected so it‘s slow going. But I‘m actually making progress in my print book which is good cause I‘m tired of reading it but don‘t want to quit. Hopefully I can finish before the weekend.

Andrew65 Well done on what you have achieved, plenty of time yet. 1mo

#AwesomeApril Update:

Day 2: 382/1000 pages read

I‘m really enjoying my current audiobook Homicide and Halo-Halo which I am thrilled about because I wasn‘t super excited by the last two I listened to and feared a slump was coming on. Now that I‘m back at work I hope to get some pages in because I got very little reading done over spring break.

I‘m not saying I‘m excited about #AwesomeApril but I did make my page tracker back on April 1st. I‘ll be flying by the seat of my pants with my TBR but I‘ve barley read a page this past week so hopefully this will kick start some good reading.

Andrew65 🤣🤣🤣 Hope it helps you to get to some reading. 2mo

Got my very Easter Egg like #BookSpinBingo board ready to go. I am exited this month because though a twist of fate I am already reading my #Bookspin and #Doublespin books. I almost never have them as my first reads of the month. Now it‘s time to sit down and get some pages read. Happy reading everyone!

Eek I haven‘t updated in a week but I‘ve been tracking still so no worries. So here‘s what I‘ve got.

#KickTheSlump: 2,468 pages, well over my goal and really happy about it
#20in4: 309 pages I didn‘t have a page goal only the desire to finish at least one book. But then I picked up 2 more so I didn‘t really fix my current reading problem 😂

DieAReader Awesome job!🥳🥳🥳 2mo

Well my goal for #20in4 was to finish just one of the 4 books I‘m reading and I did it on Friday. I finished my audiobook of Will. It would be great if I could finish one more but I‘ve wasted most of today and have many plans tomorrow and work on Monday so who knows If that will actually happen. 🤷🏾‍♀️

#KickTheSlump update.
1,999 pages read! One page away from my goal. I might have surpassed it already because I am just guessing at my audible amount of pages read. (it all adds up in the end, right?)

I‘m hoping I the next week I can push to finish the 3 other books I‘m currently reading and maybe start April off fresh.
