This was recommended to me by a friend who knew the author‘s son. Loved it and zipped right through. Cut and witty and I didn‘t guess the killer until the very end!

I‘m finally past 10% on my #chunksterchallenge2020 book, I got to 14% today! #progress @Amiable I am sad that I will have to replace it soon though, this book is from 1989 and I‘ve read it so many times that it‘s falling apart. I will keep this copy forever but for the purposes of reading, I will need another one!

Amiable Yay! Great job! 👍🏼 6d
Kimberlone This book is a reading goal for this year for me! Ive never read it before but it‘s one of my boyfriend‘s favorites. 6d

Wow! That was amazing and I saw the series but the book was so much better!

Sweettartlaura It is soooo good! Now on to Hidden Bodies 🙌🏻😉 7d
Sweettartlaura Fair warning: Book 2 & Season 2 diverge much more than Book 1 & Season 1 - those are super-close. But I wound up liking Season 2 - it‘s like a Multiverse version of Joe 💁🏻‍♀️😜 7d
BarkingMadRun @Sweettartlaura that‘s good to know! I am partway through season two right now 7d
Sweettartlaura Finish it first then - and then dive into Hidden Bodies 7d

I‘m beginning my #chunksterchallenge2020 book today, a reread of the Stand, which should only be read uncut. It‘s a beast, and I plan to read for an hour every time I finish a book, which should have me done with it in a couple months lol @Amiable also, note that it‘s moved with me from high school, and three moves as an adult. I‘ve had this book since 1990. It‘s mangled and I love it and I hope it lives forever.

Bklover My favorite kind of books!!! And I agree-uncut is best! 1w
Amiable I love this! A few years ago I FINALLY read “A Suitable Boy,” a chunkster I‘d been carrying around since 1994 when I was pregnant with my oldest son and I bought because I actually thought I‘d have lots of time to read with a newborn! Ha! He was 21 by the time I read it. 😄 1w

BarkingMadRun @mabell yes, I tore my meniscus in November and that may have caused arthritis in the same knee. I did a trail race on New Year‘s Day and it made my knee really sore so now I‘m now allowed to run for two more weeks! 2w
mabell Oh yikes! From the little I know, meniscal tears are crazy - sometimes really bad, and sometimes undetectable. But a two week break doesn‘t sound too bad! Especially if you are able to get back to your regular routine. 2w

My first book of 2020 finished. 1/75 #twentyinthetitle I am doing a lot of challenges and this filled one prompt in 6 of them. There were a few where it just didn‘t work. Pop Sugar is first and foremost though, and this filled one of the advanced prompts. Moving on to Wonder, for one of the #Booked2020 prompts.

BarkingMadRun I plan to read at least 75 books, finish the whole #popsugarreadingchallenge as well as #booked2020 and some other fun challenges. This year I ended up reading 94 books so it would be fun to hit 100, but I will be happy with 75 🤪 3w
Kimberlone I read 90 books this year so I am going to be ambitious and try to break 100 in 2020! 3w
TheDaysGoBy @BarkingMadRun I‘m doing #booked2020 as well! I‘ll also likely set my goodreads goal to 30 again. Almost didn‘t make so I don‘t want to expand it and not being able to make it next year 😂 3w
See All 9 Comments
britt_reads One of my main goals is to buy less books and try to as many of the unread books on my shelf as I can. I think 75 would be my goal ideally, but there‘s many large books that I‘d like to get around to reading so it might be more about quality over quantity for me this year. I‘m also participating in #booked2020 3w
BarkingMadRun @britt_reads yes!! I‘m trying to read as many as a i can that I already own, plus not buy or find as many as I‘m reading lol I read one and end up buying two more so I‘m never caught up! I‘m also trying to use the library more 3w
cwarnier I don't always like to set challenges on litsy because I don't seem to finish them. However I did sign up for #BBRC challenge last summer and would like to finish this. I have almost all of the books picked out for each of the remaining categories.
This year I read 364 total, 227 of those were new to me picture books. I would say if I set a goal for 2020 # read I would say probably around 130 or so.

While your vanilla bean bath bomb makes the water look like.... Mountain Dew... #wintergames #teamfozziwig @Clwojick @StayCurious

ljuliel I have a really stupid question about bath bombs. This is coming from an old lady who thinks she‘s being adventurous if she buys a different brand of shampoo. Do the bath bombs tint your skin the same color ? Say, if you‘re sitting in a CHERRY bath bomb. When you dry off, say with a white towel, does it look like a crime scene in your bathroom ? (edited) 3w
BarkingMadRun Lol it hasn‘t happened to me yet, it I‘ve heard that if you make your own that could happen. It has stained my tub, but never anything that bath cleaner couldn‘t fix @ljuliel 3w
