80 pages in and hoping this picks up soon!
Scooby is not impressed so far! 🐱

MelissaSue81 I found that nothing much really “happens” in this one until the end.. not the kind of thriller where you figure things out bit by bit.. 3d
jillannjohn @MelissaSue81 I‘m getting that feeling. I‘m also not loving the letter writing format. But now I gotta see how it ends! 3d

Love this cover but the story was just so-so for me. The Tox is gross so that was fun. 🤣

This book started off great. I really like the setting of the creepy historical building with a scary past. And of course I loved that there was a connection to a book and its author. I thought it was going to be a supernatural thriller but then it went in a completely unexpected direction at the end. It‘s good but not my favorite by Riley Sager. The Last Time I Lied is still my fav!

Looking for recommendations please.

My 88 year old mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a month ago. She has had surgery and will be starting chemo (and later radiation) in a few weeks.

I‘m looking for books on nutrition & cancer or any alternative & holistic treatments for cancer. I just ordered the tagged book. Thank you!

wanderinglynn I am so sorry. Sending healing vibes & positive thoughts. 💚 2mo
mydearwatson I‘m so sorry 😞. 2mo
DaveGreen7777 Sorry your mother is going through this! 😔 If it‘s any consolation, my 80 year old father went through chemotherapy a few years ago. It was completely successful, and he‘s actually in better health now than he was for a good part of his 70s! Hope your mother has similar results! ❤️ 2mo
jillannjohn @wanderinglynn @mydearwatson @DaveGreen7777 Thank you. @DaveGreen7777 I‘m happy to hear your father did so well. I haven‘t seen much about the elderly and chemo. It‘s nice to hear it was tolerated well. 2mo

#BFCr2 #week1 check in!

How was your week team #justbookit?

I had a crazy week & only walked 3 days, did a little yoga, and only a little reading. Not worried because I‘m gonna rock it next week!

Chili I‘m 7/7 on yoga, completed 5/18 books and I will be hitting the treadmill shortly to make 7/7 on cardio. I think I may have to up my book total. It was a really good week. Next week may not go so well with the holiday. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
Marmie7 Great job! You're hitting all those goals! 3mo
jillannjohn @Chili Wow! You‘re killing it! 3mo

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌 I would rewrite this sentence “only walked 3 days“ to “I walked 3 days!“ (complete with the exclaimation point). Celebrate your accomplishments. Maybe you didn't do as much as you wanted, but you DID IT DESPITE your crazy week. You're making progress, moving forward and NOT QUITTING! There's always week 2 and week 3, etc. to aim higher. But celebrate what you did do! #positivity 3mo
jillannjohn @wanderinglynn You are so right! Thanks! 3mo
Cheshirecat913 Awesome job with week 1 @Chili 3mo
Cheshirecat913 @jillannjohn Good job for getting in 3days day of walking and some yoga and reading. Every bit keeps you active! I had a good week, 3 days of walking, yoga, and have done all the darebee workouts, plus some reading. 3mo

#thisisourteam Hey team! We‘re in this together! Throw out some cool names for our team. 😎And if you haven‘t posted your goals yet, let‘s see them!

@wanderinglynn

Chili I use the treadmill or stationary bike at home because I can read on my kindle while using them. I can‘t do audio books. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
wanderinglynn That looks like a great place to run/walk. 👍🏻 3mo
jillannjohn @Chili I have a terrible time concentrating on audiobooks! My mind wanders all over. I‘ll be hitting the treadmill & bike this week too! 3mo
See All 22 Comments
Chili @jillannjohn I can‘t concentrate on them either. It just turns into background noise and then I have no idea what the book was about. I‘ve done my yoga and will be hitting the treadmill soon. Day 1 👍 3mo
LibrarianJen Is that corn? I like running Im the desert. The dirt/sand is almost springy as you run and is easier on the feet than concrete. 3mo
jillannjohn @LibrarianJen It‘s sugar cane. I think I‘d love running in the desert! 3mo
bookandcat I prefer home or outside but did the gym earlier today - too hot out! And I don't live in a walkable neighborhood so I run out of places to walk without driving there first. I have taken to walking around my apartment complex while reading physical books a la Belle 😂 sometimes it is just too visually boring to walk my complex with audiobooks alone lol so that is my compromise lol. That looks like a lovely place to run or walk! 3mo
Cheshirecat913 That looks like a great place to run. I am not an audiobook walker/runner either. I let my mind wander too much. Walking is usually my time to just run through all my thoughts and get them out. I do listen to music though. I've been mostly sticking to my neighborhood lately for walking. 3mo
Cheshirecat913 Name ideas, just grapping at straws here.....fit readers, just book it, litsy fit. 3mo
Dragonfairykats I don't like to work out? Lol. However, I'm going to have to adjust my goal of walking 2x a week to something I can do inside. It's way too hot and humid to go outside!!! There's no gym nearby or anything. So thinking either the stationary bike or some yoga. 3mo
Marmie7 I did yoga/meditation this morning, but on days I work I won't be walking. I work 3on3off, that's why I set my goal for walking 3d/wk. I live in a small town surrounded by hills and trees, so I just walk around town. I also live near multiple trails for hiking. I hope to do a weekly hike. 3mo
jillannjohn @bewareofwords Welcome to the team!! 3mo
bewareofwords @jillannjohn Thank you so much!! Sorry for the late addition, but I‘m excited to be part of the team! 💪🏽 3mo
Chili @jillannjohn #justbookit sounds good to me. 3mo
Buchbeeg I'm good with #justbookit too! 3mo
Buchbeeg I can only do audiobooks with multiple readers or nonfiction. I walk at the college indoor track when it's too cold or hot or rainy. But I'd much rather so nature trails! 3mo
jillannjohn @Buchbeeg Nice! My gym has an indoor track but it‘s SO small I‘m dizzy in a couple of laps! 3mo
bookandcat #justbookit sounds great and also makes me think of Pizza Hut (their old bookit challenge 😂😂) and that makes me happy 3mo
Cheshirecat913 😄 Ha, @bookandcat the similarity to Pizza Hut's challenge made me laugh...I did read for pizza. @Marmie7 Hiking is my ultimate preferred exercise, but not so many trails close by where I live now-a-days. I use to live in KY and there were a ton. 3mo
