#WonderousWednesday
1. Just whatever I‘m feeling unless I‘m doing some sort of challenge.
2. Sometimes. It depends on how long the ride is.
3. Lots of noise or movement.
4. Trader Joe‘s popcorn, Pirate‘s Booty, & Cascade Ice coconut

Going Postal | Terry Pratchett

It‘s Terry Pratchett, therefore, it‘s brilliant. 👍🏻👍🏻

daniwithtea Have you seen the TV adaptation of this? 2d
TK421 This has my favorite main character name of all time. 2d
wanderinglynn @daniwithtea No, I didn‘t know there was one. 2d

wanderinglynn @TK421 Right?! His name is pretty awesome. 😂 2d
daniwithtea @wanderinglynn yes! One of the British networks did a series of them a few years back - Hogfather, Colour of Magic, and Going Postal. They‘re all delightful!! 2d
wanderinglynn @daniwithtea Thanks! I‘ll have to see if I can‘t find them. 👍🏻 2d

Mehso-so

It‘s been a long time since I‘ve read the tagged. I‘m not sure the 100+ year old story holds up. Overall, the framework & the premise still work, but the story gets bogged down in the middle & the characterization of the tribe is not PC for today.

Jim Dale, as always, does a fabulous job narrating.

In the meantime, I‘m at SeaTac about to catch a flight to DC & will be out of pocket for a bit.

Audiobook 2/6 for #BookFitnessChallenge

Caterina This was one of my first reads on #SerialReader and I was shocked. I couldn't believe anyone loves it... It's sexist and racist and so gory too! (The description of how Captain Hook uses the hook!! 😱) I would never give it to a child to read. I agree that it hasn't aged well. 3d
Caterina Great job getting 1/3 of the way there with your book goal! You're right on track! 🙌 3d
wanderinglynn @Caterina The play was originally written in 1904 and the novel adaptation in 1911. So that explains some of it. But you‘re right. In this case, I enjoy some of the movie adaptations far better than the book. 3d

Lindy @Caterina Many children‘s classics haven‘t aged well. Fortunately, there‘s lots of great new children‘s literature written by a broad spectrum of writers. Spread the word to parents and teachers that you know, because nostalgic adults are an impediment to getting better books into the hands of young people. [Stepping off my soapbox now.] 2d
BookwormAHN Nice job 👏🏻 2d
LibrarianRyan I have not been in SeaTac for years!! I used to live on Whidbey Island. I agree. I read this with a group of kids, and they were not impressed to say the least. It does not hold up. the story outline does, but not the original prose. 2d
wanderinglynn @LibrarianRyan I live in Silverdale. I love it so far. But I do hate having to get to the airport. I haven‘t been up to Whidbey yet. 2d

Death & Honey | Kevin Hearne, Chuck Wendig, Lila Bowen
post image

To help keep the #BookFitnessChallenge folks motivated, here‘s a sneak peak at *some* of the potential prizes (there may be more not shown 😉), including a signed & numbered copy of Death & Honey.

Because (1) so many signed-up, (2) some aren‘t keeping track of points, & (3) some are able to post/comment more than others, I‘ve adapted my prize strategy to make sure that EVERYONE will be entered to win at least once. 😉

I found the information in the tagged book to be spot on & highly recommend this book. My full review on GR: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2825755697

We had a great hike, about 2 hrs and 45 minutes (the book estimated 3 hrs). Lovely views from the top. And bonus, I earned my Fitbit Skyscraper badge because we climbed approx. 1,000 ft! (More photos on IG.)

Magneto | Howard Chaykin
post image

#MayMadness #graphicnovels #villians
While there are some amazing villains, Magneto is my favorite. He‘s an Omega-level mutant—amazing abilities and powers. But he‘s also a sympathetic character because his backstory is so tragic. I sometimes almost root for him. And that‘s what I think makes an excellent villain. Plus, both the great Sir Ian McKellen and the awesome Michael Fassbender have portrayed him on the big screen. ❤️

TheReadingMermaid Awesome villain! Great choice! 🤘😆🤘 4d
cobwebmoth I love Magneto.❤💜 4d

I was hungry & exhausted when I got home this afternoon. I didn‘t want to do anything but sit. But some little dog gave me the sad puppy eyes. And I did commit to walk him at least 1 mile every day. So we did our mile while I listened to Peter Pan.

2. Week 1 of #BFC is done! The response and all the encouragement has been so motivating and heartwarming. 💪🏻💜
3. Can I say American since American cuisine pretty much steals from every other kind of cuisine? 😂

Kaye Thanks Lynn. Ive been checking in this week. Do you need a separate post with a weekly summary if we check in daily ? If so, I‘ve walked / gone to the gym each day. Haven‘t missed one. I‘ve finished 2 audiobooks, one short, and wrapping up a print book just now. Thanks. 💕 (edited) 6d
wanderinglynn @BookwormAHN so glad you‘re enjoy enjoying it! 6d
wanderinglynn @Kaye no, your good. 👍🏻 That was more for folks I haven‘t heard anything from. I know some people don‘t post everyday, so I want to give them a chance. But then for the ones I haven‘t heard anything from, I‘ll be following up with them to make sure everything‘s alright. 6d

Excellent week 1 Team #BFC! 🙌🏻

As you can see, I didn‘t quite make my goals. But that‘s okay. I have something to aim for next week.

Adapt & change, but don‘t quit. And if you‘re struggling, please post so your team can help you!

Optional photo challenge for week 2: post a photo of something that motivates you & tell us why it motivates you.

LibrarianRyan I will get my updates posted tomorrow or saturday. I am running a library conference tomorrow.

wanderinglynn @baes Yes you can change your goals. The important bit is to set goals for accountability. But sometimes our goals are right for us at that time. And as we change, so must our goals. I want everyone to succeed. 💜 6d
julesG Like your stats. As to sugar consumption, I challenged my son this week. We both went without any sweets and had healthy meals. He's doing good, no "hangry" spells. 6d
RachelO Thank you for this! You‘ve made me think about changing my Fitbit step goals - I regularly fall about 2000 short, so I‘ve reduced them by 1000 - I‘m more likely to put the effort in to reach 1000 more steps than 2000, which would still be heading in the right direction🤞 6d
Jerdencon Nice job!! 😀 6d
baes @wanderinglynn Okay I‘m going to change my goal then to 35,000. That is more doable on a regular basis! 6d
wanderinglynn @RachelO That‘s the idea. Adapt. Make reachable goals. Because you‘re exactly right—if our goals are too high that we can‘t reach them, we won‘t even try. 👍🏻 6d
TheEllieMo I‘m going to add a new goal - to stick to my calorie allowance! I‘ve been terrible for going over recently, which would explain why I haven‘t lost any weight. No more picking! 6d
mcipher Yay - looks like you did awesome this week!! I started to post mine but for overwhelmed by math 😆- but i know I‘ve done okay! Lunch break at work and my brain is mush... 5d
VanChocStrawberry I love seeing everyone's stats! It's inspiring! 5d

A Study in Emerald | Neil Gaiman
post image

My small, but quickly growing, graphic novel (& comic) collection. I blame Neil Gaiman & Sherlock Holmes. I happily ignored graphic novels until Gaiman published the tagged & of course, I had to have it because Sherlock PLUS Gaiman = awesomeness.

Several of these are on this weekend‘s TBR list. 😀

Cinfhen Well at least they‘re waiting for you if the mood ever strikes @TrishB 😉 7d
wanderinglynn @Cinfhen @TrishB It was the same with me—like my struggles with audiobooks, I had to find the right ones to start with. Enter Gaiman. And then I had to find the rhythm of them. GNs never be my faves, but they‘re nice for quick reads. Plus some of the art is amazing. I probably spend more time studying the art than anything. 7d

Audiobook 1/6 finished for #BFC. My full review of the book on GR: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2503568790. The short version is it was entertaining but not so much that I‘ll pick up book 2.

On the fitness front, did 3 miles tonight, 10.4 total since Friday. I have hit 10k steps every day & have done my 10 min of yoga every morning. I‘m already feeling better. 😀🙌🏻

Team #BFC y‘all have inspired me. First, you‘re posts & comments = awesome! I love that y‘all are sharing both the good & the tough. It‘s exactly what I imagined. ❤️ We‘re in it together & we‘ll succeed as a TEAM! 🙌🏻

And b/c of your inspiration, I have take my #BookFitnessChallenge to the next level. I‘m now using my June 5K as a training run. I have 19 (& a half) weeks to train. It‘s going to be a LOT of audiobooks. 😉

Once I'm out I have never regretted going for a run but there are many times I've given in and skipped a training run and regretted not going.
You can do it!

Despite a morning headache and sinus issues, I did my 10 min morning yoga. This afternoon, Dexter & I completed a 2.5 mile hike.

And despite its predictability, I‘m enjoying Magyk. The audiobook is read by Allen Corduner, who has a pleasant voice. (Of course, I can always listen to anyone with an English accent.)

You want to post more than your weekly check-ins so your fellow #BFCers can cheer you on. And remember, we will all have tough days—those are the days you need to post. 💚

You only get the 10 fitness points for completing the entire 6-weeks. So you won‘t add in these 10 points until the end.

Let me know if you have any questions! And keep up the awesome reading & fitness! 🏋🏼‍♀️🏊🏻‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️📚

You got this!

ferskner Is there a way to make up if you miss a day? I was so exhausted after a hard week that I fell asleep on my couch on Friday evening and didn't do my 30 minutes of physical activity. The very first day!!!! 😂 1w
wanderinglynn @ferskner I guess it depends on how you set your goals up. For example, if the goal is to work out 30 minutes 4x per week, then yes because our week is Friday-Thursday. 1w
ferskner D'oh, no I have 30+ minutes every day. Oh well, I still will keep going! The points aren't a big deal to me. I want the motivation and the community! 1w
wanderinglynn @ferskner well, you might revise your goal. 😉 1w
ferskner !!!!!!!!!! MIND BLOWN 🤯🤯🤯 1w

Lucifer Book One | Mike Carey
post image

I just finished season 4. And I‘m so thankful Netflix saved Lucifer. But I really need them to get on with making season 5 now.

Has anyone read the Mike Carey Lucifer series? I definitely think I‘m going to pick it up now.

RamsFan1963 I'm waiting until I have a day off so I can marathon as much of Lucifer as possible in one day. I know when I finish one episode I'll want to rush to the next and the next and so on... 2w
wanderinglynn @RamsFan1963 I had intended on doing that too. But then I just couldn‘t wait. Took me 3 evenings to finish (there are only 10 episodes) & I did stay up later than normal both Wed & Thurs. But it was so worth it! 🖤 2w
KathyWheeler I‘ve only seen the first episode of season 4 because I want to space it out. I‘m so happy Netflix saved it. 2w

Pretty good first day of #BFC (and it‘s not quite over, so my step total will be a bit higher). I walked Dexter 1 mile, started listening to the tagged, and I‘m still reading Going Postal.

@Litsy just announced a new feature — mute hashtags you don‘t want to see.

😂 to see #bookfitnesschallenge on the list in the photo! We haven‘t been around long, but already making an impact. 😂

Meaw_catlady Who would be tired of catoflitsy!!!?! So tragic! 2w
guinsgirlreads @Meaw_catlady I thought that too!! Bad example lol! 2w
Litsy Snort. Hey. I had to have SOMETHING!

Originally I had a joke about people who muted CatsofLitsy being monsters, but… 451 is a tough limit.

Also—sssh!—I don't actually like cats. Indeed, I'm allergic. This may or may not be @timspalding.

Thanks @Meaw_catlady for the opportunity to enter your #7777giveaway

1. My pets
2. I might have choose to go to a different undergrad college.
3. I love my life right now & I‘m in a really good place. So even though I wonder what would‘ve happened if I‘d made different choices, any arbitrary turning along the way and I would be elsewhere; I would be different. If that makes sense.

Meaw_catlady I completely understand what you‘re saying with number 3 and I feel the same way! Thanks for playing !! You‘re entered! 🥰💕🤗 2w

#BookFitnessChallenge

I was so busy organizing (b/c you guys blew me away with your enthusiastic response!), I almost forgot to set my own goals. And like the rules & the points system, I of course couldn‘t resist being a bit complicated. 😂 #blameitonthedayjob #lawyersoflitsy

And because you all embraced this idea so thoroughly, I have a couple other ideas brewing that I may toss out to you later this summer. 😉

Let‘s go team! 🙌🏻 #BFC

Bookladylinda So I have a last minute question. Do you have to have a Fitbit to join this challenge??? I have an Apple Watch, I have a little Zip Fitbit but honestly have no idea where it could be. 2w
wanderinglynn @Bookladylinda No, there was no requirement that you had to have a fitbit. Goals were to be based on your individual needs/abilities. 2w
Read4life These goals are great. I‘m with Dexter in regards to the rain. I don‘t mind if it rains, I just don‘t want to be out in it. 🌂⛈ 2w
Bookladylinda @wanderinglynn ok, I guess I was thinking that people would be sharing their goals via Fitbit. Thank you! I know the challenges start today and I was thinking of signing up but wanted to check that first. 2w

#MayMadness new to you authors

I didn‘t know Rick Yancey before reading this. The book was okay. Definitely aimed at younger audiences, like the HP books 1-3 age group. My full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2814992979

TheReadingMermaid Love the cover though 2w
wanderinglynn @TheReadingMermaid the cover is the main reason I picked it up at a yard sale. Plus the title sounded fun. It‘s not a bad book, just written for a younger audience. 2w
TheReadingMermaid Ah, I've come across a few of those too. 2w

1. Strength
2. Outdoors

5. I have a great running playlist, but it‘s upload from CDs (I never did it on Spotify), so not easily shareable. So I‘ll share my favorite 10-min morning yoga workout: https://amp.mindbodygreen.com/articles/5-yoga-poses-to-practice-first-thing-in-t...

1. Strength
2. Both (I'm a complete gym-rat)

* Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith
* Dominique Forthier
* Michelle Bardsley
* Linda Poitevin/Lydia Hawke (her pen name for some series)
* Keri Arthur
* Nikki Giovanni
* Leslie Budewitz

BarbaraJean I‘ve been pondering signing up & decided to go for it...then I got confused on the book goal instructions.😬You‘ve said it‘s how many books you will read during the 6 weeks & any format counts—but is that specifically number of books read while working out/walking/fitness-ing? Because my goal will definitely be higher if it‘s all books read whenever during the 6 weeks! But books read while sitting around seems contrary to the challenge, so...🤔 2w
wanderinglynn @BarbaraJean No, the books don‘t have to be read/listened to while working out. While I know a lot of people do audio books while walking (which was my original thought for this challenge), some workouts wouldn‘t allow for that anyway (like my fave workout, boxing). So it‘s just however many books you think you‘ll get to in 6 weeks. 2w
Butterfinger Ready to start!!! 2w

So far I‘m enjoying the story. But this bugs me: every chapter that ends on the right page, then the next page is blank. But they‘re still counting that page for the page numbers. It‘s such a waste of space and it interrupts my reading flow.

Plus the huge amount of space at the bottom margin. This book could‘ve easily been resized a bit smaller and wasted less paper.

Cinfhen I literally got tagged 26 times from this one post!!!!! Is anyone else‘s Litsy account doing weird stuff??!?!!!?? (edited) 2w
Cinfhen And I checked my spam/ junk it wasn‘t there 2w

Scavenger Hunt | Robert Ferrigno
post image

And with My Grandmother, my #MayScavengerHunt is completed!

Thank you @TheReadingMermaid for hosting such a fun challenge. It got me reading some books that had been languishing on my TBR. 😀

TheReadingMermaid You are MOST welcome sweetheart!!!! I'm so glad you had fun. Shoot me an e-mail to be entered to win some free books: TamaraTheReadingMermaid@yahoo.com 2w
rjsthumbelina Wow, that was quick! 2w
wanderinglynn @rjsthumbelina I was motivated because I was in a mega-reader slump during the 1st quarter. I‘m WAY behind on all my reading challenges, so I used this to help catch up. ☺️ 2w
rjsthumbelina @wanderinglynn well, I'd say you're well on your way to being out of your slump - You did awesome! 2w
wanderinglynn @rjsthumbelina thank you! It feels so great to be reading again. ☺️ 2w

All the feels. Once again Fredrik Backman has created odd and perfectly lovely characters who I‘d love to meet and have tea with.

#MayScavengerHunt - originally written in a different language

TheReadingMermaid OMG girl, did you finish the list already???? 2w
irre This is my favorite by Backman. 2w
wanderinglynn @irre it might be mine too, although I have read Beartown or Us Against You. 2w
flying_monkeys Every time I read another Backman, I tell myself, okay, this time you‘ll get through it without crying. And every dang time he gets me! My fave is a tie between My Grandmother... and 2w
wanderinglynn @flying_monkeys Right?!? I was doing okay (tearing up but not outright crying) until I got to the part with the Wurse. 😭 2w

BillBlume I‘m so sad you didn‘t like it. Was one of my favorites from 2017. 2w
wanderinglynn @BillBlume It just fell flat for me. But I was looking at the GR reviews & a lot of people loved it. So maybe I‘m in the minority on this one. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2w
4thhouseontheleft That‘s a shame! This one is on my #TBR 2w
wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft Yeah, I hate giving negative reviews, but it just didn‘t work for me. But a lot of people did like it. 2w

A sweet story about a bear from Peru. I can‘t believe I‘ve gone this long in life without having read Paddington.

Andrea4 Paddington is from PERU? !!! 😯 Is anyone else shocked by this? How did I not know this? I feel so confused and lost! Lol 2w
QuietlyLaura I love Paddington Bear! I have the stories on audiobook and listening to them is comforting. ☺️ 2w
wanderinglynn @Andrea4 yep, it says “deepest Peru.” 2w
wanderinglynn @QuietlyLaura I have a shelf dedicated to my favorite children‘s books and this one is joining that shelf. ☺️ Such a sweet story. 2w

#bookfitnesschallenge fitbit users - I couldn‘t find some of you based on the user name you gave. In case anyone needs to know, this is how to find/set your username on the app. Or just find me.

Tagged folks indicated fitbit users. If you‘re not tagged & want to be part of the fitbit group, let me know your fitbit username.

I also created a closed “#BFC” fitbit group. So if I haven‘t invited you yet, let me know!

CocoReads Thanks. I‘m pretty clueless on the Fitbit username thing. 2w
wanderinglynn @CocoReads No worries. Fitbit didn‘t make it easy to find. 2w

Is anyone else watching Netflix‘s Dead To Me? Holy fish nuggets! I watched the trailer this afternoon & thought, hey, that looks like fun. And so of course I just finished binging the entire season. I LOVED it. Christina Applegate & Linda Cardellini killed it!

This would make an awesome book.

In other news, who else is ready for season 4 of Lucifer on Wednesday?!?

julesG Ready for Lucifer? Yes! But I might not be able to watch it. 2w
Megabooks Oh I love Linda Cardinelli! 2w

Megabooks But apparently I can‘t spell her name! 🤨 2w
wanderinglynn @julesG How come? 2w
wanderinglynn @Megabooks Me neither! I had to look it up. 😂😉 But the show is fantastic if you like dark humor. 2w
julesG I'll just be busy. And, I have no Netflix, Prime,... subscriptions. I watched GoT this past weekend, because my friend's been on holiday and left her login details with me. But, I don't use her login while she's at home. I only catch up on shows during the weeks that I don't have the kids, too. So, I'll just give it a bit of time and then binge. 😁 2w
Lovesbooks87 The trailer looks amazing but I haven't waited it yet! 2w
irre Just watch the trailer and it does look great. Thanks for the recommendation! 2w
LibrarianRyan I binged this Friday and Saturday. It was so good. I thought it was a movie when I started it and just let it keep going. 2w
