Tidelands | Philippa Gregory
post image

You can read the first chapter of the book
http://www.simonandschusterpublishing.com/downloadables/70493-Tidelands_download...

I‘m excited for this one... I used to read Philippa Gregory all the time but ended up too confused with all the British royalty and who was connected to who.

Crazeedi I've been waiting for this one!! 10h

Caught up with part 3 of #theliterarycrew read along.

Trying to figure out who Carlota is??? And thinking I‘m probably wrong (don‘t want to write any spoilers!)

Going to read ahead for part 4!

I‘m going to early 20th century Japan for my #staycationintime swap! I‘m excited to read the book and the chopsticks are so pretty!! And the Japanese snacks look interesting and will share them with my son!! 😀
Thanks so much for all of it @bookandcat - it‘s all really great and I love it all! ❤️
And thanks to @Chrissyreadit for organizing the swap - it was so much and one of my faves to do so hope you plan it again someday!

Chrissyreadit @Jerdencon I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! I love your Staycation package! I‘ve gotten a lot of positive feedback and will probably do it again next Summer. 6d
bookandcat I am glad you liked your package! I had fun picking it out. I am so curious about some of the snacks, I had fun guessing what they were like since I can only guess based on pictures as I do not read Japanese! Hoping you get some pleasant surprises in the mix lol 6d

The Deserter: A Novel | Nelson DeMille, Alex DeMille
post image

Multi-tasking this morning - reading the ARC by Nelson DeMille and watching Say Anything! I honestly don‘t think I‘ve seen this movie since I was in high school and saw it in the movies but love the radio scene! The book is pretty good too - typical DeMille but entertaining and a page turner.

TheSpineView I have this ARC too but have not to it yet. Good to know you like. 2w

Weekly update -

Totally slacked off on the walking this week but it‘s been super hot and I‘d been lazy so will try to up it next week.

@wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft

wanderinglynn You walked 9 miles this week and you call that slacking?!? And you met your water goal every day! So I‘m going to delete your slacking sentence and rewrite it to: “I walked 9 miles this week and hit my water goal every day!” (complete with exclamation point.) it‘s good to strive for more, but celebrate what you did accomplish. 🎉 And you had a good week! 🙌🏻 1mo
Jerdencon @wanderinglynn you literally made me lol! 😂 1mo
wanderinglynn I'm glad I made you laugh. 😉 So next week, I'll hopefully not see the word “slack“ with all the miles you walked. 😃 1mo

My goals were 6 books and I made it to 6 👍🏻
I wanted to walk 12 miles a week and I made it 5/6 weeks and only didn‘t make it this week but I was close. 11.4/12 🤨

But it was more than I was doing before - so that‘s a good thing.
