We definitely had crazy rainfall amounts last week. Lots of indoor exercising. But even more reading! 🤓
Week 5 photo challenge for #BFC
I love this quote. In this case, it reminds me it‘s about being active, taking care of myself and eating better. The numbers on the scale will go down, I‘ll be more focused and feel better if I focus on my actions and making good choices.
The vertigo has been bad this week so it‘s been audiobooks and meditation for me. Definitely making sure I‘m taking care of me. Sherlock has been taking care of me, too. 🐶 I‘m currently listening to the tagged book and I‘m enjoying it. #BFC
I received Ruby Red from a fellow Litten whose daughter loved it and is also a huge Sherlock Holmes 🕵️♂️ fan. It was a great fit for me. It was my favorite read of the challenge until I finished the audio of book 2, Sapphire Blue. Now I can‘t choose.

#BFC Week 2
My motivation? These 2! I want to be here for and with them for a long time. I also want to be healthy enough to experience life with them and my hubby and not watch from the sidelines.
#mybabies 💙🧡💙 💙💜💙
I enjoyed the support of our group. After a rough start on Day 1, I hit my fitness goals for the week.
During my walks and time on the stationary bike I enjoyed audiobooks. I finished 3 books this week.
We‘ve ALL got this!
I‘ve been on medical leave for 6 months. 6 months were I haven‘t been allowed to do any exercising. I can now start walking and using a stationary bike. Today I had testing that aggravated my symptoms.
So for the 1st day of #BookFitnessChallenge I did some meditating and listened to an audiobook. Hopefully tomorrow I‘ll be able to do more.

4. Youngest of 4 but my siblings are 13,15 &17 years older than me. So it always felt like a combo of baby of the family & only child.
5. On it!
I‘ve signed up for the #BookFitnessChallenge organized by @wanderinglynn
Print books, ebooks & audiobooks count.
My goals are to read 10 books and exercise (bike, walk, stationary bike) 4 times per week.

#whodunitbymail group: this is my last update since @Tiffy_Reads is back and can take over again. This is what I have for where we should be through Nov 5 mailing based on those who have dropped out and requested their books now vs end of our complete sharing cycle. Of course, if the previous mailing wasn‘t executed as planned, we‘ll have errors on this.
I‘m really glad @Tiffy_Reads is back. Missed you! I just wanted to remind all the #whodunitbymail participants that our next mail date is coming up. If you didn‘t get a book from the August mailing because of backlog, etc. you should get a book on this upcoming rotation. 🤞🏻🤓
I really did enjoy this thriller. @Cinfhen I think you should give it a try. Harlan Coben recently said that Pinborough is about to become our new obsession. I 💙 Harlan Coben so it was more than enough to get me to give it a shot. 🤓
I received this yesterday from @TheWordJar along with Black Orchids. Thankfully I‘ve read it before so I was able to add my thoughts/notes to the journal quickly. It‘ll be on its way to you on Monday @Marmie7 Now we‘ll both have a book to read for this round and hopefully start getting back on track instead of skipping months and then getting multiple books in one mailing. 🤞🏻. #whodunitbymail
Wow! Guess I underestimated my reading time. The best part is that I really enjoyed all of my reads.
#whodunitbymail group: Just a quick reminder that those who had a book in July should have mailed it to the next person this week. I‘m attaching a link to the post that shows our updated order. (🤞🏻it works—if not just check my posts) Thanks, everyone. Happy reading. 🤓

Hidden Fire seems to be lost. @Marmie7 how would you like to proceed? I don‘t know who has read it but staying in order, @BookishBelle should get it 8/13 4. A few books got out of order 5. Some won‘t get a 📖 in Aug.
Ok #whodunitbymail — I need more members to let me know what books they have. @Tiffy_Reads @JoeStalksBeck @Alfoster @MrsV @PatriciaU @NovelGirl82 @EllieDottie @Jess7 Some should have 2 📚
Books unaccounted for: I‘ll Eat When I‘m Dead, And Then She Was Gone, The Devotion of Suspect X, Hidden Fire, The Zig Zag Girl, The Rope, Every Last Lie, The Vinyl Detectives, Camino Island, Generation Loss, Final Girls, Dog On It, The Safest Lies & Roseanna
#whodunitbymail group — I‘m waiting for 10 more responses and I‘ll be able to send out the updated list. It seems we may be missing a couple of books and we‘ve had a few books end up out of order. 🤪 We‘ll get it straightened out (🤞🏻) and know what everyone should be receiving from the August mailing.
#whodunitbymail group- I hope this isn‘t stepping on toes. It feels like we need to regroup. I took the updated list @AndreaReads sent us and set up this spreadsheet. Please comment below with what book you currently have in your possession. I‘ve listed which book I think we should have received on our last mail date of 7/2. The highlighted titles belongto members who dropped out. At least 1 told us to keep the book in circulation.
Hey #whodunitbymail ladies. This is in answer to the questions posted on Goodreads. Hope I‘m not overstepping @Tiffy_Reads These are the two previous posts I‘ve been using. Read lines are those who no longer participate. Ignore the yellow highlighting—that‘s me tracking the books I‘ve sent to @Marmie7
Is this still accurate @Tiffy_Reads ?
I love Dick Van Dyke and was happy to listen to him narrate his book. I enjoyed his stories and his opinions/points of view on a wide range of topics.
I did think it would be a bit funnier but still a “pick” for me.
I loved this book! The daughters of some of literature‘s best villains come together with Sherlock & Watson to solve a mystery.
Book 2 is out in July.
$1.99 ebook at B&N and Apple iBooks.
