So I ran my first 10K this morning and extremely proud of myself and the time I managed (3908th looks a lot but considering that over 10,000 people took part, that's pretty good for someone with no training). Anyway, my legs ache so I'm gonna lie on the couch and finish a book. #WorthIt

mcipher Congrats, that‘s awesome! 2mo
DaveGreen7777 Congratulations on your 10K! 😀🏃🏻‍♀️ 2mo

mklong Gorgeous stack! Do you arrange yours by their publication number or by author name? I keep changing my mind about how I want to do it. 6mo
LeahBergen @mklong I was just doing a reorganization of my Persephone shelf the other day. 😆😆 I group the authors together and then the rest is pretty much random. 5mo

Went on a rainy walk with the tagged audio (I'm having the hardest time telling the difference between the twins but I think I'm getting the important bits of plot? Maybe?) and made very intimate friends with this branch of a half-fallen tree whilst busy making sure I wasn't stomping on any snails 🐌 #audiowalk #bookfitnesschallenge #didnotstomponanysnails #worthit

Clwojick Way to go! This looks like such a peaceful walking trail. 😍 6mo
TheSpineView Awesome! 6mo
mabell Did you make it home intact after your encounter? 😆 6mo
okthislooksbad @mabell Indeed I did! Still with several leaves in my hair, but what can you do 🤷‍♀️😂 6mo

This book is why I read.
Just... Wow.

Friendship and tragedy, love and lies... tragic. Stunning. Raw. Confrontational. Beautiful. Eloquent. Outstanding.

I'm... speechless. I can't find the words that will do it justice. If I ever find them, I won't be able to sing this book's praises enough!!

Just... wow.

Six books in April. Four print, two audio.
It was a slow reading month but we went up to Universal for a weekend, then Easter and my dad's birthday. So we had a lot of fun days with no reading involved #worthit.

Mdargusch Did you like Less? I bailed on it. For some reason it wasn‘t funny to me. Maybe it was the wrong book at the wrong time?🤷🏼‍♀️ 7mo
kristincatastrophic @Mdargusch I did. It wasn't as great or as funny as I hoped it'd be but it had it's moments. Everyone has their own sense of humor though. I could see how some people might not like it. 7mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did good! 📖💖 7mo
