Great readathon this weekend! 4 days/20 hours reading; or choose your own goals. I‘m really bad about tracking my reading time, so my goal is 1 book/day.

A Grisham audiobook that‘s blowing me away and I want to read more about Lacy Stoltz! Halfway through and too bad I go to work soon…I‘d give it a 5 at this point~great characters and suspense.

I‘ve read so many of Paulsen‘s books over the years; it was nice to read about his own life. He had a challenging childhood and adolescence, but the bright spot was meeting a librarian who encouraged him to read, then to write!

1* & 2* Growing up we always had gardens for both vegetables and flowers. As an adult, I‘ve always had outdoor and indoor plants, and flowers. Now I have lots of rose bushes. The pic is my Belinda‘s Dream.

📔75% voracious reader, 15% bibliophile

📗📘 Lots of books I must keep for a variety of reasons, but many more that I donate or share with friends and family.

#two4tuesday @TheSpineView

LiseWorks I am a 100 % voracious reader. I read from my tablet. If I read a real book it's because it was given to me and I usually pass it on. I really do not keep books. 2w
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 👍📚💙📚💙 2w
jlhammar Thanks for the tag! If a book doesn't fall under the really like or love category for me, I pass those on to others. Usually via my Little Free Library. That way my home library consists only of my favorites and books that I haven't read yet. 2w

1️⃣ If I take good care of my body, my mental/emotional health improves.

2️⃣ I went to the shoe 👠 store on my day off, and bought a pair of shoes that I rationalized i couldn‘t live without🤫

#thoughtfulthursday @MoonWitch94

KristiAhlers I always make time for myself and I treat myself to sound baths, or guided meditations. I suffer from an anxiety disorder and this helps me so much. And today after I cleaned the house and changed the sheets on the bed I read a book I bought the other day and had a cup of tea and didn‘t do much else for a few hours. 2w
Texreader Thanks for the tag! And yes shopping is wonderfully therapeutic! 2w
