Zen and the Art of Dog Walking | G. Ray Sullivan, Jr.
post image

Beautiful day for a walk on the trail! Continued listening to Perdido Street Station on Audible. Fabulous book, but SO long! Not a good match for my 4 book goal! But now I get to cuddle up with this handsome man who‘s just soooo sleepy. #BookFitnessClub #bfc

Caterina Awww what a good doggo 😍 Great reward for getting out there for a walk. 😊 2d

This week really held me back from out of door exercise, but I made up for it at the gym. The only problem is that I can‘t listen to Audible while in a BodyPump or BodyCombat class! So less book, more sweat! Here‘s a picture of my pupper, Jackson. We did make it outside yesterday and today for good long walks! So that counts too! Overall: 2 cardio/interval classes and 2 long walks with canine! #BookFitnessClub #BFC

This weather is killing my walk/run plans!! I‘ve been listening to Perdido Street Station in my car (does that count? 🤣) but I‘d really like to get on the trail. Tomorrow I will go to the gym for a cardio/weight lifting class. They kick my butt which is great but no Audible for me!! And I had to “steal” this photo since it was raining too hard to get out of my car! #YesIWillMeltInTheRain #BFC #BookFitnessChallenge

Day 1 for me! Made it to the gym and completed an hour long BodyPump class. Wore me out, but in a good way!! I‘m also concentrating on intermittent fasting which I quite like, surprisingly! That, combined with a Keto 28 day program, should really get me jumpstarted for the summer! It‘s time to think about me for a little bit! Listening to Miéville‘s Perdido Street Station. #BookFitnessChallenge I‘ll take a real photo next time!!!

Ah-MAAZ-ing!!!! Ellie is over the moon with her #MythsandLegendsJuniorSwap ! I am away from home right now and so we opened the boxes together through FaceTime! Listening to her squealing while the camera was jumping up and down was too much fun!! She showed me the book covers up close with her name and read all the books‘ titles and summaries to me over the phone. So exciting!! She‘s asked me to send you ice cream though I‘m not sure how! Ha!

Readergrrl Ellie arranged all the items for me, took photos, and then sent them to me to post on Litsy. Technology can be so useful when we are a 9 hour drive away from each other! Thank you @LibrarianRyan 🐉🦄🧞‍♀️🧝🏻‍♀️🦹🏼‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️👩🏻‍🎤🧙🏼‍♀️ 3w
Readergrrl @LibrarianRyan I‘m remembering that extra book that you sent me through #LMPBC Now I understand! How serendipitous that you were matched! I‘m thinking now that I never acknowledged that package! I‘m sorry! I‘ve been rather distracted these last few months but thank you for spoiling Ellie. She is truly flabbergast at all the books and treats. She doesn‘t have any of them and is simply giddy! Thank you so much! 3w

In honor of my upcoming 20th wedding anniversary: We took group dance lessons to prepare for our wedding song (John Denver‘s “A Song for All Lovers”). In the class, everyone brought their song to play and we were all instructed to dance along as if at a real wedding. Our turn came. Expecting a soft acoustic guitar, instead we heard Stealers Wheel‘s “Stuck in the Middle with You”! Dancing to “clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right” (con‘t)

Readergrrl ... while everyone looked strangely at us has become one of our favorite stories to tell! So here‘s my marriage theme song! And it fits perfectly!! #SundaySecrets (edited) 4w

Mehso-so

Studying the Napoleonic Wars helped while reading this novel. The world building and the action scenes increased my enjoyment and I have a feeling that continuing with the series will help build my appreciation. Right now, I‘ll give this a 3.5/4 out of 5 ⭐️ but I am eager to see what the next novel in the series brings. I suspect I‘ll like it even more!! Sometimes that‘s how I am with multibook series. Wish we had an option between pick and so-so!

Lush tones, whispers, sighs, gravelly voices... I do not know if I can express how much I LOVED listening to this! Exceptional narration by multiple voices perfectly aligned with the characters they play. I could hear the passion, the joy...the regret. Pure synesthesia! Told in a series of interviews, each voice adds layers to the story of rock band and its members skyrocketing to fame. Daisy, Billy, and the rest will stay with me for a long time!

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

While this book started a little slowly for me, I was HOOKED about a third of the way through and finished it in a single night! The familial “toxic knot” comprised of Ernt, Cora, and Leni plus the tightly knit community of homesteaders, survivalists, the many souls running from and running to something, as well as Alaska herself created a wonderfully rich cast while Hannah‘s storytelling kept me intrigued until the end! I highly recommend! 4/5 ⭐️

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman
post image

Just finished listening to the wonderful Neil Gaiman narrate his Norse Mythology! His inflections added humor and drama to his written work in a way that brought Odin, Thor, and Loki to life. Quite wonderful! It took me awhile to finish this book because I‘d listen to one story and stop to absorb before starting the next. Great storytelling by Gaiman! Having read American Gods (currently watching the Starz series), I‘m that much more engrossed!!

This book really hit me in the heart. I am a mother of a growing-like-a-weed 12 yo daughter and,simultaneously, helping my own mother deal with health issues and aging. This book was beautiful, poignant, bittersweet, and filled me with many thoughts about the infinite possibilities of love and loss and hope and mothers and daughters. Can‘t say much more, as it will head out in the mail tomorrow @MeganAnn as part of our #LMPBC Round 5 Swap.

Just finished listening to the Audible production of Circe and I don‘t know if I could have enjoyed it more! The story was lyrical and each chapter lead me deeper into Circe‘s legend. The language and the imagery was simply beautiful and I loved that Miller clearly researched Circe and her story. Perdita Weeks‘ narration was rich and fluid, her voice mesmerizing! I want to listen to just her from now on! A full ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me! On to Achilles!!

Avidreader25 I loved this one! I should listen to the audio when I reread it. 4mo
Readergrrl The audio was wonderful. I didn‘t know that the narrator, Perdita Weeks, is also an actress on the new Magnum PI!! But I‘m old school... only Tom Selleck can be Magnum in my world! 4mo
