Not bad so far. I've only finished chapter one while sitting here in the library, but I can see the idea. It's really getting into the minds of the characters, starting with Batman. I'm always down for a good Batman story. And this is the first novel I've actually started reading about the Bat.

Karkar Batman is my favorite DC character. 2w
KennethTolesJr @Karkar Mine too. Though, lately, I've been leaning more towards Jon Stewart's iteration of Green Lantern. 2w
Karkar @KennethTolesJr will have to check that out! Thanks! 2w
KennethTolesJr @Karkar No problem! 2w

#BFC week 4 update:
took the dog for a walk today.
Started reading the book tagged. #bookfitnesschallenge #bookchallenge #fitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

Paul & Elder argue the purposes for reading are
• Universal: to figure out what the author has to say
• Sheer pleasure
• to figure out a simple idea
• to gain specific technical info
•to understand a new world view
• to learn a new subject

#BookDiscussion: What‘s the primary reason you read?

AprilMae I read as an escape. I like not being in my own mind for a while. 3w
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 3w
wanderinglynn As for your question, it depends on what I‘m reading what my purpose is. 3w

Checking in #BFC. Stretching done today and first book finished. #bookfitnesschallenge #fitnesschallenge #bookchallenge @wanderinglynn

Marina_h Well done! I also finished my first book today 😊 1mo

*sigh* I just started physical therapy and it looks like I have to change my #fitnesschallenge for #BFC . Great first check in, huh? I‘m going to aim for 3 days of stretching a week instead of an hour of walking a week — I could hurt myself. @wanderinglynn #audiowalking #bookchallenge #bookfitnesschallenge

Bookwormjillk Too bad. That must be frustrating. 1mo
wanderinglynn Sometimes we get thrown a curve ball. But you‘re doing the right thing—adapting your goal instead of quitting. So 🙌🏻 for sticking with it. Stretching is just as important. And you definitely don‘t want to hurt yourself. You‘ll get there. One step at a time. 💚 1mo
Clwojick Like @wanderinglynn said, it‘s good that you‘re adapting and not totally giving up. Anything is better than nothing. ♥️ 1mo

BookwormAHN Keep your spirits up, stretching is great 🌻 1mo
Caterina You got to take care of yourself! ❤ That's frustrating, but sounds like you're doing a great job with the challenge by listening to your body and the professionals and adjusting your goals accordingly. I've been stretching for 30 minutes 3 days a week for months now and it has made a bigger impact than weights or walking in how my body feels, it's amazing how good stretching is for you!! You got this, and we all look forward to seeing you succeed! 1mo
TheSpineView Just remember slow and steady winds the race and your Litten friend will be here to encourage you. 1mo
Kaye As long as you‘re moving, that‘s good. 1mo
Megabooks I‘m sorry! Just keep up what you can do snd take care of yourself! 1mo
DivineDiana Listen to your body! 👏🏻👍🏻👏🏻 1mo
