Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.

Currently Reading:

  • Adventures in Opting Out by Cait Flanders
  • Friluftsliv by Oliver Luke Delorie
  • A Fatal Chapter by Lorna Barrett

Total pages read this week: 317

Total books for the year: 77 of 85. Today starts the #ThanksgivingReadathon. Instead of listening to podcasts, I’ll be listening to audiobooks. Instead of magazines, I’ll be reading physical books, and instead of reading articles on my phone, I’ll open up an ebook. Even though I’m still 1 book ahead of schedule for my reading goal, as things get busier, I don’t want to fall behind.

#ThanksgivingReadathon 2020!

Tomorrow begins the #ThanksgivingReadathon hosted by Jackie B @ Death by Tsundoku!
The idea is to read as many books as you can between the 23rd and 29th of November.  There will also be a Bookstagram challenge and a giveaway so check out the readathon announcement page above to find out all of the details.  While a TBR isn’t required, I created a short one anyway.

My TBR:

  • Adventures in Opting Out by Cait Flanders
  • Friluftsliv by Oliver Luke Delorie
  • One other book from my “Hygge” list.

Are you participating in the #ThanksgivingReadathon?  If not, do you have another readathon or other reading plans for the holiday?  Share in the comments!

Total books for the year: 77 of 85. I didn’t read much this week, but I did watch A LOT of Youtube videos on being frugal and Minimalism. I also listened to quite a few podcasts, and watched “Tidying Up” on Netflix. The Boyfriend and I will be moving in a few months and we want to shed as much stuff as we can so I’m doing all of this to help give me ideas as well as stay motivated.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for November 6th – 12th.
  • I’m walking more and more, and it feels great.  It’s also getting easier for me to get out the door and do the darn thing.  Maybe it’s the cooler weather, maybe it’s a new healthy habit forming, or maybe it’s a little of both.  Regardless, I’m happy with the change.
  • I’ve completed the Castles of Ireland challenge!

Total books for the year: 76 of 85. I FINALLY finished The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear! I started it back in April, and it was not nearly as good as the other books I’ve read by Walter Moers. Of course, it is his first book in the “Zamonia” series. Hopefully, Rumo will be better, but it’s going to be a while before I pick that one up.

Total books for the year: 74 of 85. Now that the month of Halloween is over and November has begun, I am determined to finish the Current Reads that have been sitting there giving me side-eye for months. I keep telling myself I will not start any new books until those 3 books are finished. The only exception is if I want to start listening to an audiobook, but I have so many podcasts to keep me occupied right now, I don’t know if I’ll be starting any audiobooks any time soon.

Total books for the year: 72 of 85. I love readathons! They give me the opportunity to get through a chunk of my TBR or a large number of pages, and sometimes both. I finished 4 books this time around, and almost finished a 5th. I will likely finish The Carrow Haunt today since I only have an hour left on the audiobook.
