Enjoyable! Recommended for anyone who wants to engage or reengage with running. Just a well written, well told story that combines running with life.

Mehso-so

FYI for readers to go into this book with the right mindset, I think it's important to describe this as a text-heavy graphic novel, a memoir of an individual recounting how they experience the personal highs and lows, strivings and insights of each decade. Yes, examining the author's relationship to exercise is a major theme, but so is examining the author's romantic relationships, examining sense of self, substance abuse(?), workaholism.

Robotswithpersonality As with 'Fun Home', her previous nonfiction memoir graphic novel addressing mainly her relationship with her father, there's a review of/association with certain classic literary works. New to this book is a feminist angle on early stymied female writers and outdoorswomen existing in the shadow of now famous male writers and outdoorsman in earlier centuries.

Robotswithpersonality It's an unflinching, unique, but not wholly grim look at several lives, and I appreciate Bechdel's craft, but as I'm noticing with my growing personal tally of memoirs written by artists/authors, I think it's an exercise that benefits the writer more than it benefits the reader. And yet, I still want to pick up her other non-fiction work considering her relationship to her mother, as I am pulled to complete the set. 🤷🏼‍♂️ 1mo
SamAnne Great review. 1mo

She finally arrived!

This is a Broadway Cares, Broadway Legends, collectable glass ornament of Angela Lansbury in Mame. My grandpa was like - Angela who? 🙄

She was my tax refund splurge - shipping was ridiculously expensive and didn‘t come with any tracking - so it was a bit of a nervous wait!

tpixie Love it!! Grandpa!!!! I first knew her from@the Disney movie 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @tpixie, he‘s so annoying sometimes 😝😂 I keep meaning to watch Bedknobs & Broomsticks - I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen it all the way through. I‘m a big fan via Murder, She Wrote 😊 1mo
tpixie @thegirlwiththelibrarybag lol 😂. yes - that was good too- my mom loved Murder, She Wrote 1mo

CarolynM Gorgeous! I always first think of her as Elvis‘s mother in Blue Hawaii, since that was on TV a lot when I was a child 🤣 But, yes, she was great in Mame, and in Bedknobs and Broomsticks which is my husband‘s favourite film and one you really do need to see. 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @CarolynM, I‘ll make it a New Year‘s resolution to watch it 🫣😊 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @tpixie, I started from the very beginning during the first lockdowns in 2020 - made it quite a way through before getting distracted- picked it back up earlier this year - and finished watching season 12! So I‘ve seen them all (except for the specials that came out after the show was cancelled). It‘s quite a pile of DVDs 😊 1mo
tpixie @thegirlwiththelibrarybag wow! What a fun project!! Great cozy mystery series! 1mo

The Couch Potato | Jory John

This book is about a boy that loved to stay inside and do nothing but play video games. He never wanted to go outside or do anything else besides play his games. However, one day he is unable to play his video games because he loses power. He is forced to find something else to occupy him. He ends up going outside and realizing how much fun it is to do things other than playing video games all day.

channingfortney I think this is a great book to read to young children as well as middle childhood children. I feel as though many kids are computer and iPad kids these days and have never experienced the fun that is had when playing outside and being imaginative. 2mo

The Couch Potato by Jory John is a great children's book about a Couch Potato that has everything he could ever need in arm's reach but will not get up off the couch. This story is great for young children about determination and the benefits of getting active and being outside.

The Couch Potato | Jory John

Published in 2020, this story became an immediate New York times best seller. This is a story about a young potato who only enjoys playing video games. When his power goes out he is forced to find something else to entertain him. He goes outside and gets to explore the world and find beauty in little things other than video games. He ends up enjoying it and says that he is going to continue to do this more often.

kallikramer I think this is a great story to read to children because in todays world many students go home and play video games in their free time instead of going out and exploring and playing. I think this story has a great message that all students should hear about how there is so much more to life than just video games. 2mo

My forever favourite, Angela Lansbury has passed away.

She almost made it to 97, she outlived the Queen. She was the last of Old Hollywood - and just pretty cool in general.

Jaimelire Loved her 4mo
MatchlessMarie It‘s been a sad day. I loved her so much. I was actually Jessica Fletcher for Halloween last year. Been listening to Her song from Mary Poppins Returns “Nowhere to Go but Up” today 😭 🎈 4mo
