Short little #audiowalk with the dog before dinner to hit 10,000 steps for the day. 😊 Felt good to stretch my legs after working out so much in the morning and not moving much from 9:00 am-7:00 pm. 😂 @Emilymdxn I started this book finally and I'm loving it! I'm like 2.5 hours in, and it's just got such a great vibe. #newyearwhodis #BookFitnessChallenge #BFC @wanderinglynn

I like the sense of humor with which Jenny Lawson talks about her struggles with illness. Some of these stories are absolutely hilarious!

Fridameetslucy I know right! And then you begin to think that your own weird life adventures sorta have a furiously happy sense to them. (edited) 1w
TomShank413 The first book of her is awesome and have furiously happy on my radar 7d

Becoming | Michelle Obama
post image

I have finished 27 books so far in the #BookFitnessChallenge, making it particularly difficult to choose my favorite read so far. It's a close one, but I decided to go with Becoming, which I finished in week 1. My mom is currently reading the print version, so I get to relive my time with Michelle Obama as my BFF and walking companion by pestering my mom daily about where she's at in the memoir. 😊 #BFC @wanderinglynn #newyearwhodis @Emilymdxn

BookwormAHN Great job, nice pick 👏🏻 2w
wanderinglynn Thanks for sharing! 2w

The Story of My Teeth | Valeria Luiselli

I think trains are my favourite place to read 🥰 I finally got round to another of your #newyearwhodis books after a long break!

Freespirit I agree.. love reading on a train 3w
Amiable I commute to work on the train every day —an hour each way. So that‘s 10 hours of dedicated reading time each week! I love it. 🥰 3w
Caterina Yay!! I love how perfectly weird this book is. 💕 Hope you love it! 🤞 3w

Posted this last night and was about to reply to your comment @monalyisha but somehow the whole post got deleted, I have no idea how! 😡

Anyway, this is my #newyearwhodis progress. Slowly but surely 😅 Thank you @thewallflower0707 for your brilliant recommendations & @monalyisha for hosting! ❤️

Becoming | Michelle Obama
post image

2.4 mile 48 min walk to the lake and back this evening, as promised in my earlier #BFC post! It wasn't much cooler - 85°F - but no sun! And I could take my dog without hurting his little paws on the pavement! 🐾 We saw 7 deer total (in the circles), 1 fox, and a bunch of bats. I lowkey sobbed in the street as Michelle Obama talked about the Bushes making sure the Obamas experienced the smoothest transition into the White House ever. 😭

Erin7 Sounds like a lovely walk. Too cool I hat you saw deer along the way🌻 1mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 1mo

BookwormAHN Nice walk 👏🏻 1mo
britt_brooke That‘s a Boston terrier, right? What‘s your pup‘s name? 1mo
Caterina @britt_brooke Yep, he is! Pippin, after the hobbit. And he gets in about as much trouble. 😂 1mo
britt_brooke @Caterina Oh, how cute! 😆 Pics of Bostons always make me happy. We had to let ours go last summer. He was 11 and had cancer, bless his sweet little heart. 😔 1mo
tpixie What a great walk!! The Bushes were so gracious to the Obamas. Class act! on the Transition of Power! 1mo
Clwojick Deer are very popular in my area too. But they‘re so skittish, so they freak me out a little bit. 1mo
Megabooks The Obamas are so classy! And I like Laura Bush a lot. Probably because she was a librarian!! 😁😁 1mo
Caterina @britt_brooke I always love pics of Bostons too. ❤️ I remember pics of yours from when I first got Litsy. So sorry, I know how hard it is. 💔 1mo
britt_brooke @Caterina Thank you. 💕💕 1mo
Caterina @tpixie They sure were! I love how they still seem to get along well too. 😊 @Megabooks the Obamas and the Bushes are very classy! My mom also likes Laura Bush a lot. I don't remember as much about her since I was 14 when Obama was elected. @Clwojick Sometimes when they go crashing through the woods as I approach it scares me! But ours aren't too skittish here, at least compared to when we lived in town. 1mo

I need a break before I listen to the last five hours of Another Country (it's so heavy!), so I switched to Becoming, which I'm halfway through and loving. Broke out an old granny square crochet project from years ago and am re-teaching myself crochet. #audiocrochet #bookfitnesschallenge #BFC @wanderinglynn #newyearwhodis @Emilymdxn

Emilymdxn Amazing! Pleased to see you taking care of yourself inside and out. Another Country is certainly heavy, it took me a while to read, Becoming will build you up much more! 1mo
wanderinglynn Very cool! 👍🏻 1mo
BookwormAHN Nice job 👏🏻 1mo
QueenJen Beautiful work! 1mo

Flight Behavior | Barbara Kingsolver
post image

Kingsolver has a way of writing characters that are completely brought to life. I can‘t fault her writing. The climate change aspect of it was fascinating and the setting of a small community generally always makes for a decent story. Only thing that let it down was the end; it felt a bit rushed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #booked2019 #clifi

Cathythoughts Nice review ♥️👍🏻. I‘m pretty sure I have this one at home 1mo
Pricel101 Great review 😀 Love this author! We had her on our #newyearwhodis list! 👌📖 1mo

youneverarrived @Pricel101 yes! 🥰 I think that was probably my favourite read of last year! 1mo
BarbaraBB I just finished my first Kingsolver so I am happy to see you recommend another one! 1mo
youneverarrived @BarbaraBB she‘s becoming a favourite of mine. I‘m intrigued by the one you‘ve just read. I‘d never heard of it. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage This was my first Kingsolver. All I kept thinking was, “Why did I wait so long?” 1mo
BarbaraBB @BarbaraTheBibliophage That‘s what I‘m thinking too now that I‘ve just finished my first! 1mo
Cinfhen I love Kingsolver but was a bit disappointed by her newest 1mo
youneverarrived @Cinfhen yeah I‘ve seen mixed reviews on that one. 1mo

Another Country | James Baldwin
post image

Finished the first latch hook kit I had found (the sunflower) and on to the other latch hook kit (the horse). Both of these are very old and had been very abandoned. Now they'll get a second go, especially if I manage to turn them into pillows and give them to someone who would like them! Completely absorbed by Another Country, I can hardly hit pause to make this post. #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc @wanderinglynn #newyearwhodis @Emilymdxn

Emilymdxn So glad you‘re enjoying it! 1mo
Librarybelle I have a ton of latch hook kits - I used to love to do them! Maybe I need to get back in the habit and listen to an audiobook. 1mo
dariazeoli Glad you‘re enjoying the book! 1mo

Cheers to escaping in the afternoon for a quiet tea and a good book. I read the first part of Jemisin's trilogy in January thanks to #NewYearWhoDis and @MeganAnn and this second book picks up with the same drive the first book ended with. No slowing down to awkwardly recap, just driving forward with the story👍

riversong153 I read this Trilogy and it was awesome! I read the first installment in January too! Happy Reading!! 1mo
TheKidUpstairs @riversong153 thanks! Her world building is incredible. I found the style a bit difficult to get used to in the first book (mainly the sections using second person), but the writing is just so good that it didn't take long to get hooked. 1mo
