#readinggoals I have 3 of these on the go and for book club, my friend picked the two plays. Virginia Woolf will be a reread which is fine because it‘s great. I don‘t know anything about God of Carnage. These will probably be it for September. Some count for my ongoing #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge and #aty2019 #selfimprovementsept

Repost for @laur89 :
Alright people. I‘m taking this on for #ReadLikeRory (my own #GilmoreGirlsReadingChallenge).

This one is a #CHUNKSTER at over 1000 pages. I‘m sort of intimidated, but it‘ll be Mr. Dreiser‘s birthday on the 27th, so I‘m doing this in honor of him. 🎂

I would totally love to #BuddyRead this with anyone who‘s interested! Hefty novels like these are better with friends... so comment & tag @laur89 if this book catches your eye!

Lcsmcat @laur89 When are you planning to read this? I‘m interested, if I can fit it in. 4mo
Aimeesue The Ebook is only 45¢ if that sways anyone. That's only .00041322 cents a page! A true bargain for a masterpiece. ? 4mo
laur89 @Lcsmcat Starting it this month! But it‘ll be totally informal. Read whenever you want, and share your thoughts along the way/see others‘ posts about the story! 4mo

laur89 @Aimeesue 🤣 That sounds like one purchase... that leads to another... and before you know it, you‘ve spent $30! But that is a compelling reason to join in! 4mo
Lcsmcat Sounds good. Count me in! Do you have a hashtag? 4mo
Lcsmcat Just pulled my copy off the shelf and my edition is _only_ 874 pages. 😆 4mo

Hestapleton Hey I‘ve got a copy of this on my shelf for forever! Totally down for a buddy read. 4mo
laur89 @Hestapleton Yay!! It‘s going to be totally informal. Basically, read through the month of August and share on Litsy any thoughts about the characters or moments that make you go 😮🤔😠😭, etc. (like any excerpts/quotes that hit you in the feels). 4mo
Hestapleton @laur89 awesome! :) 4mo
twohectobooks Hey, I just happen to have already started this on July 16 and will join you if that‘s ok! I‘m a little over halfway through.. my copy is 814 pages long. 4mo
laur89 @twohectobooks Of course it‘s ok!! More readers always welcome 😃 I‘ve just gotten to book 2. Major thought so far: Hortense and that STUPID fur coat ... 🙄😒 I want to get to the juicy part already! 4mo

May finishes. I loved Dolphins, Fahrenheit, Red Clocks, and Marriage. Outsiders and Meditations were okay. #thisisit #amonthofsongs #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge #bookclub

DQ and Sancho are too much! I am enjoying this classic despite the fact that it‘s taking me forever to read. But I do wish I could read it in Spanish and that I had an advanced degree in Spanish history and culture. 😂 I am sure so much goes over my head. #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge

AlaMich I took a Spanish class at the Cervantes Institute once with a guy whose sole reason for studying Spanish was to read DQ in the original. 6mo
Mindyrecycles @AlaMich wow jealous of both of you! 6mo

Meditations | Marcus Aurelius

Day 1 of #bookfitnesschallenge. My goals are pretty lax: 1. Move every day. 2. Listen to a book while I move. 3. Continue a low carb, low fat way of eating. I lost 13 pounds last month. Only 80 to go. 😂 #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge #aty2019

Clwojick 13 lbs! That‘s awesome! Keep up the awesome work! ♥️ 6mo
4thhouseontheleft Great job! How do you like the Meditations audiobook? 6mo
Bookwormjillk Wow! I‘m so impressed with your weight loss. Keep up the great work! 6mo

Mindyrecycles @Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft @Bookwormjillk @Read4life @dariazeoli @Kaye @Chrissyreadit @Caterina Thank you all so much for the encouraging words! Finding some good nuggets from Marcus. There‘s a little too much the gods this and the gods that for my taste though. 😂 (edited) 6mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser That's fantastic! I have similar goals but I'm struggling to maintain them. You are going great! I have 25 kg to lose, but I'd be happy with 10kg. You are inspiring, thanks for sharing 🤗 4mo

I have seen Gilmore Girls upwards of 12 times all the way through. It's my perfect background noise to read to.
Plus it's International Women's Day, so what else should I watch?
