I had a bit of a rough week here in Texas. Apparently, Texas is not equipped for any bit of winter weather. We just now are able to utilize the water out of our taps. I know I shouldn’t complain, as things could have been a lot worse, but it still has been a bit stressful.

I did participate in the 24in48 Readathon over the weekend and did pretty well. I didn’t quite read for the full 24 hours, but I did read for 17 hours, which helped me get through a few reads. It was such a nice weekend.

24in48 Readathon – February 6-7, 2021

24in48_v2-03_full-color

It’s time for the 24in48 Readathon!!! I have so much reading to do for book clubs and buddy reads, that this will be good for me and will help me buckle down. I’ve missed this readathon. It has been too long.

When does the Readathon begin?

Hour 0, aka the official kickoff of the #24in48GroupRead readathon, will be at 12:00am on Saturday, February 6th, Eastern time.

What are my Readathon goals?

Time:
I worked a lot of overtime this week, so I believe I may be a bit too tired this weekend to read the full 24 hours, but I am definitely going to try to read for at least 18 hours.

TBR:
These are the books I hope to finish this weekend:

  • The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
  • Things We Lost in the Fire by Mariana Enríquez
  • The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles

Books I will read if I finish the above:

  • What Women Want by Fanny Blake
  • The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Modern Roman by Aziz Ansari

Social Media:
I will be posting updates on multiple social media outlets:
