#bfcr4 ✔ in @wanderinglynn @bookandcat @Honeybeegirl @jmtrivera #gobletoffitness
Exercise: 1.5/2
Books 1/8 but I might finish one today
Starting this past Wednesday I now have to limit the exercise I do, so I added a new goal which is to eat 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of vegetables a day
How did everybody else do this week?

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 Great week! 15h
ravenlee May I make a suggestion for the veggies? Keep a container of bell pepper strips, sliced cucumber, and/or carrot sticks in the fridge (all keep for about three days before drying out). It makes it really easy to grab a handful for a snack or alongside a sandwich. Two handfuls is a serving of veggies! 15h

Finished the graphic novel version last night.

#bfcr4 @wanderinglynn @jmtrivera @Honeybeegirl @bookandcat

My book goal is eight books in 6 weeks. My fitness goal to start is working out 2 hours a week. I did two 45 min bike rides today. Starting the week of October 17th the amount of exercise I can do will be restricted due to medical reasons, so I think of a new goal when I get there, prob nutrition based.

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

It's probably been about 10 years since I read this book, and Atwood is one of my favorite authors. I listen to the audiobook to refresh my memory so I can read The Testaments. Claire Danes is an excellent narrator, and I was surprised by how similar the book was to the show.

I chose this book because a local library is doing it as its one book. Not exactly what I was expecting as it was more philosophical rather than a narrative. Lots of memorable quotes. Always interesting to read a book that takes place so close to where one lives.

This was my first Riley Sager novel. I don't like scary or gorey, so I was glad this wasn't that. Even though it has spooky elements, it's more if a mystery than supernatural or horror.

PerksOfBeingABookworm I haven‘t read his first, Final Girls, because the description sounds way to gory. But I really enjoyed his second book. I liked it a little better than this one. Last Time I Lied isn‘t gory. (edited) 1mo

I really liked the writing style, but I can see why it is a turn off to some. The chapters are numbered but told out of sequence. The novel begins with chapter 30. An depressing coming of age story set in the desert.

Out of order, but here's my optional photo challenge 3. There was a bookstore that I loved going to; unfortunately, it has since closed. The owner did a blind Date with a book where she picked a book for everyone that she thought we hadn't read but would like based. It's all about how individuals can make positive change. It turned me on to one of my all-time favorite charities called hero rats. #bfcr2 @wanderinglynn

Daisey I downloaded it, but I don‘t generally need to keep track of my time reading and am really bad at keeping track of time. 3mo
DGRachel I have mixed feelings about the Bookly app. I like it for print books in that it gives me an idea of how much longer it will take me to read a book once I start it and sometimes that‘s helpful to know (like when I‘m trying to decide whether or not to stay up past my bedtime to finish a book) but it also feeds my negative obsessive tendencies, which is not good. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
sudi I had the app but i always forgot to turn it om when i started reading. It just makes reading seem like a chore, where everytime i have to remember to open the app to track my reading. Takes the fun out of reading. 3mo

I love Alafair Burke, so I was surprised I had never read this one. I've heard a few people criticize the ending, and I would agree. I loved the pacing and story of this book, but the ending felt like it had more "telling" rather than "showing." Overall, a good mystery.

Not sure how to categorize this book. It's a mystery but doesn't have that traditional mystery feel. I guess I'll call it literary fiction. What a unique concept. I definitely recommend.

It's been a crazy final week of #bookfitnesschallenge It was last week at a school I've been at for 9 years. Very bittersweet. Here's a pic of the plant my co-workers gave me, and this awesome book I got at the library today. It talks about companion planting and herbs in different plants you can use for everything from medicine to cleaning supplies.

People make fun of my town, but now look we've got one of these in my neighborhood. I've been a middle school teacher for a decade, but now I'm transitioning to a high school, so I'm clearing out a lot of my younger kid books and putting them in here.
