Sorry I haven't posted my process. School and work have been kicking my butt.
For this past week I walked 3k
Books:1
I'm changing my weekly walking goal from 10k weekly to 5k.
Book count is changing to 3.

@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Great job! 🙌🏻 And way to adapt your goals because you hit the most important part, not quitting. And I‘d recommend some self-care too since you have a lot going on with both school and work. 💜 1mo
LifeInPages Thanks for the advice and understanding :) 1mo

I know I'm a day or 2 late but here is my weekly process for #BFC #bookfitnesschallenge. Tried hiking Mt evans and since there's little to no cell reception all I have proof is pics. Books read since challenge = 1. Sixth day at work so I say it's been a busy week.
@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Sounds like a great hike! 👍🏻 Way to go! 🙌🏻 1mo

P.s. is there anyway to upload more than 1 pic at time on Litsy? I've been trying to figure it out and having no luck.

BookishMarginalia No, there‘s no way to post more than one pic at a time. Multiple posts is it. 2mo

Sorry that I've been out of commission due to 2 different big life accidents that have happened to me since I last posted on here and on my YouTube channel. This picture is a sneak peek of what I'll be reviewing on YouTube. I have not read this book yet so sorry for the misleading pic.

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien

So this book as you already probably know is a great book. It was a reread for me through but I forgot everything that I read in middle or high school when I original read it.
It's a great stand alone book from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series. It does however goes with the Lord of Rings series.
Must read!

The Story of Kullervo | J.R.R. Tolkien
Pickpick

Overall the book was good. It was interesting because it's Tolkien's 1st known written work even if it's unfinished. If you like Tolkien and getting to understand how 1 of the greatest authors became to be then it's a must read.
It's hard to read but so worth it.

I'm new to this whole hashtag thing, so what's #feedareader? I saw it and I honestly don't know what it's about....

mabell It is a swap of books and recipes. I don't think this swap is still open for matches, but you can follow @LitsySwaps to find out about new ones. 😊 13mo
LifeInPages Thanks so much @mabell! I'm so slow on these things. 13mo

Taking a break from the other Tolkein book I've been reading to reread this 1. The 1 I've been reading is more textbooky while the hobbit is the complete opposite. Just learning and enjoying the different sides of Tolkien this week. Learning so much from this author!

Started reading this and so far it's interesting. I feel like it's trying to tell a creation story but not. I've just started so Idk if it'll stay that way.

This book was overall good. Think it would've been nice to read the version that was published before the movies because the copy I was reading had mostly a chapter referring to the movie.
I haven't seen the movie so the only reason why I didn't stop is cause the artist in me was curious on their 4D Design secrets they were willing to share. Which wasn't much. Besides that bump it was a good book. :)

Just a lil bit halfway done with Dunkirk. There is so much infor in this book that it's hard not to eat it up. O.o

Duma Key: A Novel | Stephen King

This book hit so close to home it was scary. However, it was one of those reads that helped me actually see that my life isn't really all that bad.

Reason why it hit home is cause I'm an artist and I just recently broke my right elbow,(it's the 1 I draw with), and well art is my life. King did a good job, it's not his greatest but it allowed to help out ppl going thro physical disabilities which is amazing!
Overall good read! :)

Life of Pi | Yann Martel
Bailedbailed

Hated this book! Couldn't even finish the 1st 10 chapters cause I kept falling asleep each damn time!!! Author doesn't know how to write, only knows how to interview, which are totally 2 different things!!! Hate it so much I'm leaving it in a hotel lobby for some unfornute soul! It's either that or throw it away...

Bookbabe7689 Ha! Left it for an unfortunate soul. 😆 2y
