Nice day for a #LitsyWalkers outing. 😁 It was warm enough and the snow is finally disappearing. I explored some of the surrounding area today, and walked along the creek by the house. Thoroughly enjoyable. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I‘ve been doing 3-hour workouts every day. Usually 1 hour of cardio and 2 hours of walking. Much of it has been indoors because of the brutal winter we‘ve been having, but now it‘s getting nice out again! 😄

Penny_LiteraryHoarders Awesome! I need this motivation and get out walking like that!! 3mo

LiteratiCafe This was one of the saddest books I‘ve read. When I finished all I could think was how does someone come up with such a story. Truly an amazing imagination, but oh so dark. This one is on my recommendation list of books with feels. The list includes The Dogs of Babel and Good Grief. All three are so good and so sad. 1mo

Billypar I really liked it: for a short novel, I felt like it captured the relationship between the main characters in a realistic way, even as it covered the larger societal implications of the doors. For me it combined the appeals of a magical realist novel and a short story. 4mo

After several days of treadmill due to unfit walking conditions, I finally ventured outside. It was 63F degrees (only 3 days ago it was -5!!!), but as you can see it‘s still icy and treacherous. It‘s going to get cold again, and more snow is supposedly on the way. But it did feel good to get out. I walked to the Dunkin‘ Donuts and got a coffee to reward myself for walking outside today. #LitsyWalkers #audiowalk

4thhouseontheleft That‘s awesome that you have a destination you can walk to! I sometimes walk to the a nearby outdoor shopping area, but it‘s a 45 minute walk each direction. But there‘s a B&N! And a Ben & Jerry‘s. 😂 4mo
BookBabe @4thhouseontheleft It‘s very exciting for me! We spent the past 3 years living on top of a mountain with nothing outside our gated residential neighborhood but woods for miles and miles. You couldn‘t walk to any destination. So this is a big thrill! 😁 4mo

Yay! Totally #notbookrelated... but @MrBook and I just had the distinct honor of seeing the rockabilly legend Robert Gordon perform—AND I got to meet him! 😁😁😁 One thing I love just about as much as reading is enjoying great live music. So thrilled!!!

#BookNBrunch! #SnowDay Edition. While @MrBook was out shoveling, I made our traditional brunch for us 😁. Accompaniment this frigid and snowy afternoon: cheesy scrambled eggs (mozzarella and cheddar), crispy bacon, extra-crispy tater tots, cinnamon-raisin toast, and a V-8. Yum 😋! This has been another presentation of: #MrBookBookBabeKitchen. Happy reads & happy eats! 😊🍳🥓

Still working through this #reread, and enjoying it even more this time!

So if any of you happen to have an extra $75,000 that you don‘t need, burning a hole in your pocket, you can stay for one night at this hotel suite in Manhattan which features this really cool library! 💁🏻‍♀️

Well, I didn‘t expect to get to 24 hours for #24in48 and #24B4Monday—this just wasn‘t a good weekend for me for a #readathon. Saturday we had pals helping us move and assemble furniture (so then we had to treat them to pizza afterward), today we had book club in NYC followed by family dinner in NJ, so I didn‘t have much time to read. Well, better 14 hours than none!😄Thanks for hosting, lovely hosts!🤗 Congrats to those who reached 24 or more!🙌🏻

12:30am, reading in the library with a cup tea and a bowl of fruit. It was a crazy day today — got my new desk delivered, had people here helping to set it up and clear out the room it went into. Treated our friends to a pizza dinner to thank them. But I‘m doing okay...thanks to my insomnia, I‘m now up to hour 12 for the #readathon. We have a busy day tomorrow with book club in NYC and family dinner in NJ, but I‘ll keep at it! #24in48 #24B4Monday

Okay, okay, you‘ve talked me into it! 😄 I was going to be reading most of this weekend anyway since I need to finish a book before our #NYC #bookclub on Sunday. 📚 Not sure I‘ll be able to make it to 24, but might as well try! 🙌🏻

BookBabe @CouronneDhiver A smart home is technologically hooked up so that you can do things like walk into a room and say “I‘m home” and all the lights turn on. Or, when you‘re comfy on the couch and want to watch some Netflix, you just say “Movie time” and the lights change color and dim. That sort of thing. The problem is that nothing works flawlessly, so you‘re always getting mad and screaming at your devices. 5mo

#LitsyWalkers: What weird weather we‘re having! Today got to a little over 50, and we had crazy fog as the ice was melting in the unexpected heat. I wanted to walk to the train tracks, which are in the distance there, but I started to get nervous that some idiot was going to run me over in the fog, so I made my walk a short one. It was hard to breathe in all that humidity anyway. But it sure did look cool! #audiowalk

Kaye Spooky looking picture ! Good thing you got home safely ! These walks in all this weather are toughening us up for the easier walks on those pretty spring days we have ahead. 5mo
Cathythoughts Looks amazing 👍🏻 5mo
Vexingcircumstance 50 is really cold where I live. If it gets below 40 here everyone complains a lot if they have to leave their houses. When there is snow or ice everyone panics and everything closes. Lol. 5mo

BookBabe @kaye Indeed! • @Cathythoughts ☺️ @Vexingcircumstance Wow, where do you live? I‘m in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, and the craziest thing about this weather is it was literally zero degrees less than 48 hours ago! 😳 5mo
julesG Weird weather. Your picture looks spooky, I'm glad you played safe. 5mo
mrsmarch It was nearly 60 degrees outside Boston yesterday morning and it rained all night so the ice was POOF gone when we woke up. It proceeded to monsoon the rest of the day. Climate change says what? 5mo

DarcysMom That is some spooky fog! 5mo
Vexingcircumstance @BookBabe I live in Wilmington North Carolina. It‘s on the coast. Its actually 52 today, which is cold to me. I wore a sweater. Lol. It‘s been in the 60s the last few days, though and it was in the 70s or warmer through most of December. February is usually our coldest month, though. If we get snow or ice that‘s when we get it. Then in March it starts warming up again. It‘s usually at least in the 80s most days by April. 5mo
Vexingcircumstance We had a couple weeks of weather in the 30s and 40s this month and I was freezing. I don‘t even own many clothes for temperatures that low because we just don‘t get that cold of weather for very long. 5mo
RadicalReader @BookBabe they really should do book sharing on YouTube where they do a live steam of their thoughts on a number of chapters and then others can join in like a virtual web chat book club 5mo
catebutler The atmosphere in this photo! 😍 I love the fog - such a deliciously haunting feel about it. But, you‘re right, it makes it hard to see someone walking in it! 5mo

#HelloThursday | childhood edition 👧🏻
Contingent upon the particular age of childhood, since answers vary greatly from ages 4 to 7 to 10, I‘m basing mine upon the 2nd grade/age 7 era.

1. Ramona Quimby series.
2. Reading in my room, knowing my parents were at the other end of the house, making sure I was safe, cared for,& protected. It was a glorious feeling that I miss so much.
3. Every chore! 😝
4. RockStar Popple; JEM doll; Nintendo
