@wanderinglynn #bfc I wouldn't be able to do the fitness part of my goal without my headphones & these 2 apps. Depending on the book & the time I do my walk, I switch between music & books.
Have tagged my next listen on Audible - I can't remember why I added it to my #tbr pile, but it's narrated by my favourite Doctor - Peter Capaldi, so I'm already looking forward to my next walk!
Forgot to take a pic of the post office, but this was the route I took home after sending my #mysterymessageswap @TheReadingMermaid
#bfc week 3 stats so far: 1/2 walks; another book completed (at 2/12 now) and some more fruit consumed @wanderinglynn
The book is great on Audible, especially the narration of The Stranger story (it would have been equally good if Mark Gatiss narrated this bit!) and the Indian police woman. Definitely spooky! 5 🌟
Another UK #Kindledeal!
IF you can see the hill in the distance, that's where my house is! Alternative route to & from the shops pictured, I prefer the park route I've been posting!
Haven't had any additional fruit & veg in my diet, just the usual amount which I'm not counting as I haven't gone out of my way to consume it.
Have tagged the book I've completed.
#bfc progress not so good this week, but I did have a hospital appt & a visit to Bletchley. @wanderinglynn
3 🌟 My replacement for G on #litsyatoz @BookishMarginalia as I wasn't getting on with my original (The Goldfinch). Also my replacement for #booked2019 #booktomovie @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage
It was OK but I might have to borrow the 1990 film!
Bailing for now but may come back to it later in the year.
Another excellent talk at Wimborne Literary Festival means I have another book on my TBR pile!
#hookedonafeeling #maymoviemagic @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant
@wanderinglynn one of two walks completed for week 2 of #bfc completed as my manager at Oxfam needed me again, & by volunteering there means that I know that the exercise part of my goals is started.
Second talk from Wimborne Literary Festival attended, & much better than Kate Williams' one. So much so that I bought the book!
Back from the talk - engaging but didn't really learn anything new.
But I did learn that:
✔ The murder of RIZZIO is a red herring to disguise the fact that they wanted to abduct Mary
✔ Kate is of the 'Mary wasn't involved in the murder of Lord Darnley' camp
@Cinfhen please #saveme from myself... these are all my tweets that Anne has liked! It makes me smile (& occasionally jump up & down) when she likes them!
The Chasers did The Wizard of Oz for #letssinganddanceforcomicrelief - Anne was the scarecrow!
#bfc #2 is the answer, although I do stop and get out of breath on both. I dread this one more though. Both are manageable if listening to music or audiobooks. @wanderinglynn
The only good things about this road is that it contains lots of squirrels & you occasionally see a cat on the pavement!
Question for all #bfc participants! Which of these hills do you think I have to stop/get breathless on most frequently? @wanderinglynn
That is actually my 2 walks for the week done, any extra will be a bonus now! I also drank an orange juice on the way back so that's good too! Just need to improve the book side of things now!
@Cinfhen LOOK WHAT'S HAPPENED ON MY TWEET! 😹😹😹😻😻😻
The contestants had to give words longer than 6 letters in 'Killer Queen', which in my opinion is her song!
@Cinfhen When there's a question about your home county on #thechase and your favourite Chaser reveals she has a cousin who lives in Tolpuddle (in the same county), which is near the river Piddle (or Puddle) and features in tagged book!
First walk for the #bfc completed, thanks to my manager at Oxfam asking if I could cover this morning! @wanderinglynn
Have tagged the book I listened to on the way back (it's a bit scary to listen to at 8:40 in the morning on your own when walking through the park!)
If any of the #bookfitnesschallenge littens use Samsung Health, I'm jenniferw88 on there as well.

1. Dark Chocolate
3. Game of thrones, Sherlock, Dr Who (12 ❤) and THE CHASE!
4. Marvel, The Greatest Showman, Johnny English
5. Tie between pink and purple
7. I'll have to come back to this one
Red lines are for the tagged book.
5 stars for this retelling of Macbeth, as it was easy to compare to the original, unlike Atwood's interpretation of The Tempest.
1. I'll say cardio, as that will be better for me in terms of my health.
5. This playlist has most of my fave songs in, but I'm going to try audiobooks for the #bookfitnesschallenge. https://open.spotify.com/user/1165314581/playlist/35D8x1bvnCjuI2P1UY5zTZ?si=W1ZM...
OK, slight change to my goals for @wanderinglynn 's #bookfitnesschallenge.
I'm still going to do 12 books and at least 2 walks into town and back each week, but I'm going to add try to eat more fruit and veg in my diet as well.
Today's #jb and #litsylove thanks go to @Crazeedi @BookNAround and @Mynameisacolour (also thanks to the last two for the book recommendations!) I'm slowly working my way through all my Litsy birthday cards - expect a reply at some point, but I received 40+ cards in total (not all Litsy-based) so it may take some time!
Update for #mysterymessageswap and #summersantagoespostal match - I'm pretty certain my to read stack is up to date now! @TheReadingMermaid @BookishMarginalia
Pictured is my 21st birthday ring from my parents, which I mentioned in my #mysterymessageswap form. It's a pink emerald surrounded by 2 diamonds.
However, the song's inspiration was not initially Vietnam or social unrest, but Keith Richards seeing people scurrying for shelter from a sudden rain storm. According to him: ⬇️
