Reading Challenge

My #Borrowathon TBR

#Borrowathon, Round 4 is starting tonight at midnight and I am planning to take part. I say planning because I actually have a lot of books to read for review at the moment as well as having some out of the library!

#Borrowathon is a week long read-a-thon that encourages participants to borrow books in any means necessary, but with a heavy emphasis on using your local library. Created by Riley (@rmfickfack and fiveleveninety), this round takes place from midnight wherever you are on 20 May to 11.59pm on 27 May 2018. There are 6 challenges that you can complete too, as well as plans for a live discussion and catchup and sprints along the way.

I took part in a previous version of this (I can’t remember which round) but it was good fun and so when I heard it was back, I started planning right away!

So my potential reading list is below – I doubt I will have enough time to read all of these but will give it a good go!  I can hit all of the challenges except 3 .. unless I can find someone that tells me that one of the books listed is their favourite!

 

Will you be taking part in #Borrowathon? Do you make use of your local library?

2018, Sunday Roundup

Sunday Roundup 1

I thought I would do a Sunday post each week to sum up the bookish things that I have done in the past week.  This will mean that I won’t post Hauls, Wrap-ups and Currently Reading posts separately, but will include those details in this weekly post too. If there is something missing that you would like me to include, do give me a shout!

My Loves of the Week:

  • I have done a lot of reading on my Kindle Fire this week – It really is wonderful and I am so glad I spent the money on it at the end of last year!
  • This is totally non-bookish (although there have been some books published) but I have been attempting to catchup on the final 3 series of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – I boycotted it for a long time when Grissom left but after happening upon a couple of episodes on TV the other day, I decided that the time was right and so have been watching a couple of episodes a day and am LOVING IT!

And finally.. a bookish quote of the week..

“Life’s so busy, I don’t think it matters if you’re eight or 80, the world just moves so fast nowadays. I think the most important thing is to give yourself time to read.”
