Orang-utan Librarian questions:
I saw this meme over on Dancing Books and decided to do it too since I do quarterly reading wrap-ups instead of monthly ones. What’s on Your Nightstand is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. It’s basically a wrap-up, though not as detailed depending on how you structure your reading wrap-ups. The meme is held the fourth Tuesday of every month. (I assume that means the last Tuesday of a month that has 5 Tuesdays.)
For my posts, I won’t say exactly what’s on my nightstand because my make-shift nightstand is crowded with books I need to write reflections for on here. I’ll follow the prompt but will only include what I read this month and what I plan to read, which is tentative because I hardly ever read what I say I will. I’ll also include articles I read or plan on reading, as well as podcasts I’ve listened to. Let’s get to it.
For the past week, April 18-24, I participated in the Authorathon, a new readathon created by booktuber Joana Sousa, and cohosted with Sam, another booktuber, at Thoughts on Tomes. The purpose of this readathon was to focus on an author, or authors, whose books you want read, and I succeeded in that part. I reread a book by an author whose work I initially wasn’t enthused about and started a book by an author who I wasn’t sure I would like.
So reading-wise, this readathon went well despite my week being crazy busy. However, I forgot that there are activities during readathons and so I forgot to check in on Twitter to participate in reading sprints and such. I just totally forgot about that part. Also, I didn’t do updates throughout. I didn’t have the time for it. The challenges for the Authorathon were as follows:
