24in48 Updates


I finished my first book (already in progress):  The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. Also listened to a little of Three Junes. 

Currently, I am at: 3 hr 13 min  Now, I will be busy most of the evening. Not stellar progress, but I should be able to do much better tomorrow.


Finished Conversations With Myself (already in progress), and read parts of Three Junes, Ill Will, and Giant of the Senate.

Final stats

9 hr 1 min reading, 1 hr 51 min audio = 10 hr 52 min, 550 pages

Not bad. I think I'll shoot for 15 hours next time!

24in48 Intro Survey

  1. Where in the world are you reading from this weekend? Utah
  2. Have you done the 24in48 readathon before? Yes, this is my 2nd one!
  3. Where did you hear about the readathon, if it is your first?
  4. What book are you most excited about reading this weekend? Can't pick just one. I'm currently in the middle of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks, and it's fascinating.
  5. Tell us something about yourself. Love books (obviously), travel, music, mountains, sports, my two grown daughters, husband, and dog!
  6. Remind us where to find you online this weekend. Litsy @readerann and

24in48 Reading Stack!

O.K, here it is.  I pulled together ten books that I want to read in the coming weeks (four of them are already in progress). Since I can be a mood reader, I like lots of variety for Readathons.

Death of a Glutton by M.C. Beaton
Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks (in progress)
Three Junes by Julia Glass (in progress), also on audio
Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela (in progress)
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Giant of the Senate by Al Franken
Ill Will by Don Chaon (in progress)
On Kindle: A Mind to Murder by P.D. James, also on audio
                  The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis

I do have some other things to do this weekend, but I will fit in as much reading as possible. Good luck, all!

It's almost time for the 24in48 Readathon!

This was so much fun last time that I can't resist joining in again.  It's the weekend of July 22/23.  I won't be able to devote the whole weekend to reading (darn it), but should be able to get several hours in.  I have no idea what I'll be reading yet, so I'll post my plan next week.
