#MistletoeManiacs #WinterGames #ReadAThon #ChristmasMyWay

The ReadAThons to tag would take up 2+ posts, so I am posting a summary. This week was lots of crafts, Christmas-themed shows, and then finally got back into pages with a TBR revamp. Still writing, too. Love and appreciate you, Littens. Amanda can testify. Any prayer warriors are invited for a lift up. Merry Christmas, happy belated Hanukkah, happy holidays. Been a year for us, folks.

This is the 1st #readathon that I get to ‘thon! Long weekend, been working hard, & getting 1st half of microchip today. Is the waiting after to ping the device? Is there an app? Do I get a sticker? Am I a commie, now? Anyway, only goals are read, dishes, workouts, church. And I do have to go easy on myself after submitting to that process. The goal this time is 140 pages a day to finish two of those books, and stay caught up in the other.

bthegood The idea that they are just driving, choose a different route, and then this surreal thing....it seems normal, a town, police but it's all wrong. Then the characters start thinking, if only we had taken a different route, and then they think how just an hour ago their life was ordinary. It's creepy because we could be driving down the road and get pulled over.🙂 @CaffeineAndCandy (edited) 12mo

I think that a few of these tags are fellow #potteraday groupies. I am almost done with Harry Potter 5, but OMG ON SIRIUS, he was my favorite character, as a bad boy AND a hero, hands DOWN😭🖤

slategreyskies I cried. He was my favorite character too. 😭 14mo

GHABI4ROSES Thank you, @slategreyskies @andrew65 @eggbeater @eggs I never knew that YA could get heavy, takes a special writer to hit the range like that, huh? This is a new world for me, and thanks for that to Litsy and @Squidget ! 14mo
Andrew65 I‘ve only got into YA and fantasy since Litsy. 14mo
Eggs Yes @GHABI4ROSES YA can be powerfully good 14mo
GHABI4ROSES Really @Andrew65 ?! And @Eggs it seems YA nails is better than regular! 14mo
Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES Yep! Used to just focus on Thriller, mystery, suspense and historical fiction. 14mo
GHABI4ROSES Exact same @Andrew65 14mo
Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES Perhaps we were separated at birth 🤣 14mo
GHABI4ROSES @Andrew65 being related to me would definitely be in the Suspense category🤣 14mo
Linsy So true!!!! The absolute best. I just wish Harry had more time with him 11mo

Not so #dailycheckin but just ordered the captioned book to rejoin my Goodreads Buddy Reads. It can be fall and winter in my mind, at least! Still am progressing for #ProgressItNovember, and I refuse to do anything but read during the Thanksgiving kick off for this month‘s #24B4Monday #readathon ! I MEAN IT!

DieAReader Yay🥳🎉 You know how to reach me anytime you want a sprint buddy😉😁 #24B4Monday is this weekend? 🤯😳🧐 1y
Andrew65 Look forward to seeing how much reading you get in that weekend. 🥰😍❤️ 1y
Andrew65 @Squidget No #24B4 Monday is the following weekend, 27th - 29th November. 1y

DieAReader Thanks @Andrew65 😅Still time✅ a few books off my current open stack📚 Finally dove in & I must say that I much prefer it to book 1. I think I actually read 165+ pages of it yesterday🤯 Unheard of for its predecessor 🤣 1y
GHABI4ROSES I thought about that when I was posting, the Thanksgiving thing is just us Staters! For sure @Squidget and thank you @andrew65 ❣️ 1y
Andrew65 @Squidget I must read them, I keep saying that. Will happen one day. 1y
DieAReader @Andrew65 😂😉 We all have those types of TBR piles 1y
Andrew65 @Squidget 🙈🙈🙈 1y
GHABI4ROSES Not only is it TBR for me; I have a complete set of those volumes, yet order the paper back? The trees are weeping @Andrew65 @Squidget 14mo
Andrew65 🙈 14mo
DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES I did this & only realized it about 1/2 through the ebook lol. I had leant my physical copy to Mère & she was just about to start it lol. So I told her to pass it on when she was done reading it? 14mo

Last night, as I dozed off to dream about books, I realized that I am READY to declare my 2021 reading goals. Is it not yet time to post it on GR, @Squidget ? Tracking along on the end of the year goal, and the Stephen King reads are officially added back IN!

DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES GR goals for 2021 will be available sometime in December. Can‘t remember exactly when, maybe mid-end🤨🧐 1y

Using the #ProgressItNovember #readathon to finish Moby Dick (classics series), Harry Potter 5 (my #PotterADay series), and Courting Darkness (the first of a series). That is today‘s #dailycheckin 💖

Andrew65 Great goals, good luck 😍 1y
GHABI4ROSES Still tracking, @Andrew65 @Lesanne @Squidget @SusanOrnelas65 ❣️ Not a lot of reading required, if I read 10 pages a day of each of those three books, I will be done by 04 December. So much less than my dreams of 50-100 pages a day, but being busy blessed is just as well💖 (edited) 1y
Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES Every journey starts with the first step! Every little bit helps that journey. 1y

Getting ready to end a week where... wait for it... I PUT MYSELF FIRST!? Got rest. Got exercise. Yes, got behind in work. Yes, behind on house cleaning. But adding one thing back at a time, & encourage all to do the SAME❣️

Cheers to Amanda for bedtimes👏🏾

Celebrating with you all by truly embracing the #24B4MONDAY #readathon & the #dewey.

Lofty Goals (complex styles):
📚Finish Frankenstein;
📚Read 200 more pages of Moby Dick.

#dailycheckin as I continue to make gains on the catch ups! Feeling Family Dynamic shift: two of my college kids who returned home WITH their long-term partners had break ups this week. I am (ALMOST) bored with not cooking for 7 every day! Prayers for peace that surpasses understanding; I see them emotionally powering through already. My two kids in the break-ups are only 19 months apart, so they will just go back to getting in trouble together😂

Andrew65 Nice to hear from you ❤️ 1y
Lesanne Thank you for still including me in your check ins! I haven‘t been on here in a few weeks so it‘s really nice to still be thought about. 🥰 1y
GHABI4ROSES You are in my Daily @Lesanne @Andrew65 @Squidget @SusanOrnelas65 and I am looking forward to the 24B4/ Dewey weekend💖 1y
