Finished this short story by Stephen King only available on Scribd. It was just okay. I was surprised by how short it actually was considering it's Stephen King.

I finished my first book for #Scarathlon2022 and it was excellent. I was engaged all the way. It kind of reminded me of Memento the movie... just a little. An excellent thriller for sure, definitely original and refreshing!

Word Search = 1,790 (forgot about it until about 50%)

Hey everyone, I just want to remind you all that #LittenListen is happening all month long. If you're participating in #Scarathlon2022 it's a great way to earn extra points if you're an audiobook listener such as myself.

The bingo card is completely optional. It is not required to participate, but also a great way to get extra points.

Have fun and happy listening!

Kimberlone I will be participating! 1d

It's almost midnight here, and I work tomorrow, so I thought I would go ahead and get out our matches for #trappedonanisland.

It's time to read for our lives, we're trapped and it's our only solace.

Please remember that you must read at least 1 title chosen for you. Please make sure that you make a post that features the titles that you have chosen for your match in a timely fashion so that we can all plan accordingly for #Scarathlon2022.

Here's another bingo for #Scarathlon2022. This one will be used for #Trappedonanisland, my library holds, and other random titles that will not be chosen for #bookspinbingo or #Trappedonanisland. The idea here is that what I will be reading will be chosen at random by someone else, the library, or the spin the wheel app. Should be fun. The real question is how many will I actually be able to read?

First Bingo card finished. #Scarathlon2022 Picture Book Bingo. It's getting harder and harder for me to find picture books. I think next year I'm going to have to start doing some re-reads.

#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

Ann_Reads @aperfectmjk Cute bingo card. 🙂
Since it sounds like you're participated in #Scarathlon before, do you know how many points each picture book read is worth? The same question goes for each short story read?
Also tagging @Clwojick @Staycurious, or anyone else who knows the answer. Thank you. I've looked through a bunch of posts but must have overlooked the answer to this.

Just one week left before #Scarathlon2022 begins. It's not too late to sign up for #trappedonanisland. See original post for details.

Those that have signed up, please let me know if you would be interested in having 10 books wash ashore instead of 5. I myself am making a bingo card that is all about the unknown. Library holds, #trappedonanisland, and Spin The Wheel app.

Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
post image

Hey everyone! If you're participating in #Scarathlon2022, considering joining us in #trappedonanisland. Let someone help you choose between those spooky reads.

Here's how it works.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island" or for this month you can also use a shelf called "scarathlon2022".
⬇️

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. Or you can just do spooky selections for #Scarathlon2022. The more books on your shelf the better, this keeps things fun for your match. 2w
aperfectmjk - Each month at the start of the month you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf or #Scarathlon2022 shelf.
- You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
2w
aperfectmjk - You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading.

If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below.

Mehso-so

Finished my first #trappedonanisland book. I wish I could say I loved it, but that would be a lie. I think the issue is that this doesn't make for a good audiobook. I have this marked to actually go back and read the book. I do this sometimes with certain books. Sometimes the narrative lacks dialogue and I lose interest.

@HeathHof

TheBookHippie I read it when it came out and just devoured it. (hard to believe I am this old) I reread it recently and was like MEH... then I read the graphic novel and loved it! Ha.. 3w
Ruthiella I am also old enough to have read it when it first came out and I reread it when The Testaments came out and for me it held up 30 some years later. 3w
Tove_Reads I didn‘t care for it at all. 3w
IndoorDame I first read it in the late 90s (which I guess gives you an idea of how old I am) and loved it! And reread it recently and found there were parts that didn‘t hold up. But despite that it remains one of my favorites, along with the GN which is amazing! 3w
HeathHof Awe bummer! I really enjoyed the physical book. Atleast you can cross it off the Ole TBR. 3w

I don't know why, but everytime I read "He/She pursed her lips" or "I pursed my lips" in a book this is immediately what I picture in my mind. ?‍♀️

Ugh, what a train wreck August turned out to be. I read several books that weren't even on my card.

My favorite from August was Stolen Tongues. I just love a good creepy novel. This had all the hair-raising elements. Perfect for #Scarathlon2022 for those looking to add to you TBR.

Finley Donavan Knocks Em Dead is definitely a runner up. I'm really enjoying this series.

Here's my list for September's #bookspinbingo. I learned my lesson last month. I can't omit my library loan spaces for the #trappedonanisland spaces, so they get there own spaces this month. I blew my own challenge last month because of my stupid library loans. This month, hopefully will be better. It's always a gamble though. I think it's going to go one way and it's always the opposite. 😄

More audiocrafting today. I still have a LONG way to go yet, but at least now I can see my vision coming together.

I finally finished Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, I can't tell you how many times I came close to reading this one, but just never quite got there. It was excellently written. I can see why it's a must read.

Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
post image

Hey everyone, we're half way through August. September will be here before we know it... then fall, pumpkin spice, I can almost smell it. Sorry, I got lost. Speaking of getting lost, come get lost on an island with us. Join the #trappedonanisland challenge.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island". ⬇️

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. The more books on your shelf the better.
- Each month at the start of the month you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf.
⬇️
2mo
aperfectmjk - You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
- You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading. ⬇️
2mo
aperfectmjk If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below. 2mo

The Neverending Story | Michael Ende

Well it's official, I'm 40. 🙄

I was lucky enough to have the day off work. So I took advantage of it by doing some audiocrafting. The Neverending Story was one of the books chosen for me in last month's #trappedonanisland and my library hold finally became available.

@Clwojick saw this and immediately thought of you! Almost time to start decorating. 😉

#Litsycrafters

Susanita I had to go to four stores looking for pool noodles, so I‘m not using them for crafts! Cute idea though. 2mo
Catsandbooks I've made something similar with paper towel tubes and hot glue! 2mo
aperfectmjk @Catsandbooks I bet that would look just as cool. 2mo
Clwojick Yessss! I told my husband the decorations are going up within the next two weeks! Lol 2mo

Mehso-so

First book finished for #trappedonanisland. Sad to report this was not a homerun for me. I never was one of those little girls that wanted a pony or was into horses, so maybe that's why. Also didn't much care for the narrator with this one. It sounded like an elderly lady, and she just didn't portray the character well.

#bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! At least it's another classic off the backlog list!! 2mo

Did some more audiocrafting today. This one was a bit out of my comfort zone, it didn't turn out exactly as envisioned, but I gave it my best.

Inspired by a photo taken by Austrian photographer Julian Rad.

Serial | Jack Kilborn
post image

BOOK MAIL! Did I mention I am a Blake Crouch fan? I also enjoy Jack Kilborn, you may also know his work as J.A. Konrath. He's created some wildly entertaining thrillers. Again, stories that may not be for everyone. This is a first edition, no. 124 out of 500. Happy to own this one.

#suckerforsignedcopies #bookmail

FortunateSon I actually didn't know Jack Kilbourne was J.A. Konrath! I just recently purchased the first book of the Jack Daniels series called 'Whiskey Sour'. 2mo
FortunateSon Oh, and I'm also a huge Blake Crouch fan. 2mo
