In the Woods | Tana French

Tried to read this book a couple years ago but couldn't get into it. Figured I'd give it another try.

Well I enjoyed this but the end was disappointing.

I live in Iowa and my library has some books I want, mostly the popular ones, which then have long waiting lists. I figured I'd give one of these libraries with non-resident borrowing a try. I went with Brooklyn. Happy with my decision so far. There's books my library doesn't have and shorter waiting lists on them and I can borrow titles for 21 days instead of the 14 days my library ebook collection allows.

Caffeine isn't even working this morning. 😭 Worked until 9pm yesterday and got home and fell asleep shortly after 10pm. Woke up at 3:30am this morning for work. I hate taking naps in the afternoon but I think one might be necessary today.

I bailed. I couldn't read it anymore. 🙈

The Shadowhunter's Codex | Cassandra Clare, Joshua Lewis

81 pages in and bored. Thankfully it's short though.

limada I skimmed a lot, and just read the “handwritten“ notes, as they're the character driven and therefore more interesting bits.

JeansBookshelf @limada I'm finding that I'm doing the same thing. I am giggling at some of those notes 😂 2w

I've been working up to walking more for a month now. My knee would bother me before but now it's doing much better. Today is day 3 for reaching over 10,000 steps for the day. Audiobooks help with the walking. Audiobook I started today is tagged 😊

Did a little walking around at work this morning and found a Robin's nest.

Bird fact: People say that if you touch a birds nest or eggs that they will abandon it because it smells like a human. This is a myth. Birds don't have a good sense of smell. I learned this while volunteering to check Bluebird nest boxes. 😊

Most birds are protected by law though so I don't recommend messing with them or their nests.

wanderinglynn Beautiful! 💙🐣 And very true that most birds are protected by law, either federal or state. 👍🏻 And of course, that‘s just all-around good advice whenever dealing with nature. 2mo

JeansBookshelf @wanderinglynn I agree very much! The volunteering I do gets me that much closer to nature but in a safer way for everyone 😊 2mo
