Got my first three volumes of the new paperback Lymond Chronicles. They are pretty, oversized and have decent sized print. Good additions to all my other versions of this series. #DorothyDunnett

rubyslippersreads These are still on my TBR list. 😊 7d

I know I‘m too late to join but I‘ll do it unofficially if I have to. Sounds like a great challenge! It aligns with my goal to become an audio walker. Today I proctored an AP exam which meant standing around a lot. A measly 5000 steps. Goals: 10,000 steps, yoga, spinning, audio books. #BookFitnessChallenge

My books are haphazardly organized and all over the house. I'm thinking about how to better organize. Here's a random shelfie. In my mind these books go together. #shelfie

MelissaSue81 @LeslieO - ahh! Interesting! I asked because it seemed to me a wide age range from wimpy kid to hunger games... 5&6ers read hunger games? I read it as an adult and couldn‘t handle it. 🤣. My 4th grader has read most of the others but not hunger games! 1mo

Experimenting with tracking my reading with the Bookly app. I love reading to the sound of "light rain". The actual weather is another story. It hasn't stop snowing since yesterday morning. Current temp is 2 degrees with -15 wind chill. Back to my book and gentle rain! #snowday #readallday

LeslieO @DHill I'm loving it! Got behind on my Dublin Murder Squad. 4mo
AmyG I read to that, too. My husband works out of our home....which for now is a small apartment. So I put rains sounds on to drown him out so I can read. 4mo
LauraBeth I can feel the chill in that pic - stay warm! I started using Bookly at the beginning of the month and have found that I really like it. I thought I‘d stop using it after one or two books but have been consistent with it. 4mo
