Next up in audiobook land! I‘m desperate for more time to read actual books with my eyes but I‘m busy so at least I have time for audiobooks! The problem is I only really like non-fiction audiobooks. So I‘ve been reading a lot of non-fiction but I miss novels so much. This week my goal is to put down my phone before bed and try to read a novel instead. I‘ll keep you posted on that 😬

I have been a horrible penpal and I apologize to my #poutinepenpals and #litsylove groups for being such a slacker 😔 So my goal for this week is to FINALLY make a dent in the pile of wonderful cards, letters and postcards I have received over the last many months. I‘m determined that not even slicing my pinkie finger over the weekend making cabbage salad is going to stop me. LET‘S DO THIS!!! 💌

Oh my goodness - end of a decade! Why did I only just realise that ??🤣🤣🤣
I picked up Yellow House recently and can‘t wait to read it - it seems to be on every list imaginable at the moment!

I always inform my high schools students about what I‘m reading. Becoming is an excellent book on audio. Love ❤️

#SoaringScores The Mongol Derby is the world‘s toughest horse race. A feat of endurance across the vast Mongolian plains once traversed by the people of Genghis Khan, competitors ride 25 horses across a distance of 1000km.

In 2013 Lara Prior-Palmer – nineteen, underprepared but seeking the great unknown – decides on a whim to enter the race. What happened next was history in the making. #SuperFeats
I listened on audio 👍🏻🎧

Cathythoughts Sounds great & that it would be a good one for audio 👍🏻♥️ 9h
Cinfhen Lots of reviewers seemed to be put off by Lara but I found her youth, stupidity, bravado and determination endearing @Cathythoughts She came across as VERY AUTHENTIC if not perhaps a bit naive and spoilt 9h
Freespirit Sounds great...what an amazing story! 8h
CrowCAH I heard about this; quite the extraordinary tale 🐎 4h
Cinfhen She‘s super gutsy that‘s for sure @CrowCAH @Freespirit 3h

Much if this book was thoughtful. However, I wish the author had been more reflective of the ways that his own privilege effected his experience.

This book, and the way Busy writes it, is like you‘re sitting with her on a comfy couch with drinks while she tells you stories. I found it enjoyable, honest and fun. I especially liked that she doesn‘t hold back naming names, and though it‘s an unpopular opinion, I liked that she validated my extreme dislike of James Franco. Don‘t yell at me- he‘s gross (not looks-wise, but as a person). Anyway, it won‘t be for all but I liked it!

It‘s beautifully written, a book about getting old and the ghosts of the people and times that are gone. But it didn‘t feel substantial enough to me. It‘s so heavily dreamy that it feels it could float away. #scarathlon #teamStoker 6 points.
