Hour 18 #24in48 nightstand challenge! I have a new habit of keeping my physical TBR of books I own at the ready right by my bedside & I‘m into it☺️📚 @24in48

Kicking off my #24in48 a little early since I know I‘ll probably be too busy Sunday night! Didn‘t realize how short this #audiobook was when I started it so I‘m thinking I can finish it this weekend! 📚

Well since I‘ve essentially run out of room on my bookshelf (gotta keep the bottom 2 shelves clear b/c of the toddler), my new solution is to keep a selection of TBR books on a shelf of our bedroom headboard! But how will I choose?!😍 #tbr

Here‘s how I‘m doing on my 2 challenges for the year (@bookriot #ReadHarderChallenge & a Books on the Nightstand bingo card). I‘ve read 10 for each one (not allowing books to overlap) so 20/48 books isn‘t too bad! I should probably get started on the “longest book on your TBR” task! I was going to pick a classic, but I actually think Dragonfly in Amber is one of the longest & I started it recently! #readinggoals

MaggieCarr I'm working on my #ReadHarderChallenge too :) 1y

How about a little 6 month check in! Half the year is gone & I‘m a little behind, but I‘m not stressing! I wasn‘t sure what my goal should be this year with a new baby (she‘s 1 today!! 🎉) so I‘m not being hard on myself. I also have a few other goals, like read 10 physics books off my shelf, and I‘ve read 5 so far so that one is going well! #readinggoals

This one is just not grabbing me right now. After this and The Golden House by Salman Rushdie, I‘m starting to think I‘m not a “sweeping family epic” lover (with a couple exceptions like Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi). But based on how much everyone loves this one I‘d give it another shot if I was in the mood (but in print because the audio narrator is not cutting it for me).

This book was so fascinating!! If you are curious about hermits, the wild & all the ways it can try to kill you, survivalist stories, being alone vs being lonely, or the potentially harmful effects of classifying people who don‘t fit in perfect buckets with a mental diagnosis the you will be intrigued!

I toyed with the idea of stopping about a quarter of the way through and stopped just shy of halfway. The dialogue grated on me (particularly on audio), it's gruesome, I don't want to stick around to see what happens, and I just had a baby girl a few months ago so I can't really handle reading...this...kind of thing at the moment.

bookwormkara @Dogearedcopy thank you! it‘s a nationwide program so this is the app you can use to keep track & my local library has a party for kids that meet the goal! They say that kids who have read books 1000 books before kindergarten have better aptitude, are better prepared, etc...big surprise right?😄 2y

Someone call Professor Flitwick because this book has all the charm! It‘s lovable & cozy like a big squashy armchair by a fireplace. Like a Louise Penny novel without the murder. I will definitely revisit this one when I want something about books that‘s also lovely & feel-good☺️☺️☺️ #audiobook

Today's #riotgrams are underrated books. This is one of my favorite books and I don't know many people who have read it. It's a beautiful essay collection. I love so many things about it & it's also lovely on audio with Meg Ryan narrating.
