Dewey's reverse readathon continued...

So, this readathon has been a success! At least compared to earlier readathons. And it's not over yet! I have read and listened to four chapters of Harry Potter and the deathly Hallows, and listened to seven chapters of Educated by Tara Westover. I don't own a physical book of Educated yet, I did order it yesterday from book depository. It should arrive when I return home.

I enjoy both books and it's only my second time reading Harry Potter and the deathly Hallows... but first time listening to it. It's read by lovely Stephen Fry. He is the best narrator ever! I have listened to many books narrated by him, for example The hitch hiker's guide to the universe. Excellent. Brilliant.

Educated is so good, I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat and putting my hand over my mouth, so I wouldn't scream out loud. That's not happened in a while, if ever! Wow!

Educated is a book about a strict Mormon family living in Idaho and it's a memoir. The family is kinda old fashioned but also pretty out of the ordinary. Tney strive to live completely off the grid and self relying. It's such a page turner, except I'm listening to it.... lol.

More later!
