If you took RL Stevenson's Treasure Island and crossed it with George Stewart's Earth Abides and added The Incredible Journey, this is just what you'd get. Very, very good. And also: DOGS.
A lot of the fun is in all the apocalyptic novels the protagonist has read. He reads a lot, as does his family - his father believes in "Liebowitzing" - keeping knowledge from past civilizations safe and passing it on, from the book A Canticle for Leibowitz. ?

rretzler Loved A Canticle for Leibowitz! 16h
Aimeesue @rretzler I love post-apoc stories. It gives one something to appreciate. Even when the present- day world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket, they remind you that there are still good things in it that we haven't yet lost. 6h
rretzler @Aimeesue They are also some of my favorites. I love any kind of dystopian novel in general, for the same reason. 5h

One of the wittiest and cleverest books I‘ve read in a while. These two authors together are excellent. Would read anything else the write.

#BFCr3 week 2. Our city hosts 4 summerfests and this evening one was at a park only about a mile from my house so of course we walked! I was super bummed though when I found out that the 80‘s band Starship had to cancel. I love those guys!

LibrarianJen It was a great week fitness wise. The top picture is of me walking and laughing because I wasn‘t sitting in the back to school traffic line. It seriously would have taken me the same amount of time to drive as it did walking. I managed 76,402 steps and 266 exercise minutes! @CaroPi was a huge help with her encouragement and check in this week. (edited) 5d
britt_brooke Great week!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 What a bummer about Starship, though. 5d

The zombie survival guide is essential reading for us civilians!

Packed full of advice on identification, disposal, weaponry, packing, defending the home, climate considerations, and anecdotal evidence of the notable outbreaks that have occurred to date, no novice should be without it!

And as you can see, it can even be bought as a deck of flash cards for quick reference! Get yours today. 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️

Here are my stats for the day. Yes, I walked to work which also means I had to walk home-It was only 96 degrees outside. 🥵 In other news it was great to see some of my students. They make me so happy! As for the audiobook, I‘m only 3% into it but am already hooked.

You guys it‘s too effing early to be up and even think about walking to work. Arthur agrees. I know I‘ll feel better if I walk, but a part of me is like, no I should ease myself back in. The plus side of walking is the tagged audiobook came in last night which I‘m excited to listen to. The down side is I can‘t walk my dog while listening to it.

It‘s 6:30. I have 15 minutes to decide.

Take a minute to look back to where you started 6 weeks ago.

Now, look at what you did these past 6 weeks & where you are today.
Look at all the books read.
All the steps taken.
All the workouts completed.

Amazing, right?!

You may have not ended up where you expected or wanted. I know some of you felt disappointed some weeks. But you all made fantastic progress! 🎉CELEBRATE THAT! And let's KEEP GOING!
