I‘ve always had a fairly large TBR but large doesn‘t describe it any longer. My husband says it‘s out of control but he‘s not a reader so doesn‘t get it. I listen to audiobooks regularly instead of seldom and the Litsy community has introduced me to books I might not have noticed otherwise. I love having my reading horizon busted wide open.

The Bridge From Me to You | Lisa Schroeder

From Me to You #beatlemaynia. When searching for something to fit today‘s prompt I came across this middle grade book set in Oregon. Discovering books set in my home State always makes me happy. 😀

1) tagged book, An Old Woman‘s Reflections and The Question of Red
2) In Paris on a chilly evening late in October of 1985 I first became aware that the struggle with the disorder in my mind—a struggle which had engaged me for months—might have a fatal outcome.
3) There is no greater robber than a bad book. It gave me permission to DNF books where before I would read them to the bitter end.

Blackbird is a memoir I read long ago about Jennifer‘s experience with foster care after both parents left. It was gut wrenching.

1) The tagged book is one of many recommended by a former co-worker. She stills drops by so we can talk and share books.

I had to google Ticket to Ride to come up with something for today‘s #Beatlemaynia prompt and found this. I have never heard of the board game but it looks fun.

Walking | Laleh Khadivi

Day 1 It was a 3 out of 5 walk... Dizzy and I walked to the park and I didn‘t get bombed by the gaggle of geese circling overhead. It was not an audio walk as I forgot my earphones and after downloading the WalktheDog app recommended by @Soubhiville I forgot to start it. I did remember to take some pics...love the hint of spring peeking out. Thanks for the inspiration @kaye and everyone else who is a #Litsywalkers

Kaye It‘ll take you a few trues to get your equipment handy and ready to go. My earbuds are hanging on my doorknob with my keys. I keep my iPod charged with a book downloaded. My apps don‘t need clicked to start them so I don‘t have to do that. You‘ll get the hang of it and do great. Watch and see. I see green stuff blooming already ! Gosh, and sunshine. Looks great 👍🏼 4mo
