I read three #OneWordTitle books this month, but I'm going to pick this one for #ReadWithMrBook! I didn't know anything about it before I started, other than that it was on the #TOB2020 long list, and I loved it! The narration was excellent, the stories, characters, and settings were absorbing, and it made me extra-eager to go #audiorun to spend more time in it. The writing was lovely. 😊 @MrBook

Beautiful #audiorun today. 2 months ago I ran this same 5 mile loop at a 12:25 pace, and today I was able to do an 11:29 pace. Progress!🏃‍♀️🎉 Love this #audiobook for running, it's beautifully written + suspenseful. 😍

I'm at 8 hours for the #24b42020 #readathon. 😊 Got in an #audiorun this morning + #audiobook time during weights after my run and the drive to the YMCA and back. Read The Water Dancer and Jesus and Nonviolence: A Third Way during the afternoon/evening and finished up The Bullet Journal Method on my phone. Now I'm ending my #audioknitting for the night with my hat almost done! Will make the pom-pom and sew the hat together tomorrow or Monday. 😊

marleed I love the hat! 2mo

Day-after-Christmas #audiorun in my parents' very hilly neighborhood (maybe I shouldn't've been avoiding the hilly parts of Berkeley all these months 😅) and #audioknitting on the project from Stitch & Story that I got for Christmas. Such a lovely project kit and such soft yarn! 😍

I didn't know anything about this #audiobook before starting it except that it was on the #ToB long list and available from my library, and I'm loving it! #ToB2020

ljuliel Your hat looks like it‘ll be very soft and squishy. 2mo

Finished this up on an #audiorun today! Excellent as an audiobook (read by the author). Very entertaining, weird, funny, and can I say weird again? 😂 Beautiful writing that grows on you, and tenderness that creeps up on you. I thought it was just entertaining for the first couple hours and then it grew on me in a weird way and by the end I found it far more poignant, funny, and beautiful than I thought I would. Worth a listen, ⭐⭐⭐⭐.

Megabooks Totally agree with your review! 2mo

First #audiorun since getting home! It was 34°F, which is the coldest run I've ever done, and this neighborhood is very hilly (this picture is from the only flat stretch in the whole area 😂), so it was a fun, challenging run! Loved getting to listen to more of this audiobook, I'm only a couple hours in but it's sucked me in! Glad the #ToB long list got to me pick it up! 😊

This was a great #audiorun listen, especially once I sped the narration up a tad! The author reads it well. A few times she obviously teared up, so I may have cried a bit on a couple runs. 😂😭 This memoir kept me listening- loved her passion for trees/plants/soil, her friendship with Bill, her marriage and child, the struggle of being a female scientist with bipolar disorder, and her love of reading. I could see myself revisiting this someday. ❤️

I only got rained on a little on my gorgeous 8 mile #audiorun today through Berkeley, the Aquatic Park, and the Bay Trail! Longest run ever. 💕🎉🏃‍♀️😁💪 Made a solid start on this audiobook, and so far it's quite entertaining for running, but not amazing. @Emilymdxn

Bookwormjillk Great job! 3mo

Managed to squeeze a quick #audiorun in on the treadmill this morning! My second-to-last week of the semester has begun, and I am drowning in coursework/dreaming of break. So very ready to be done with this semester! 🤪

Another long day of studying with a quick #audiorun! Ran on a treadmill mostly to make sure I didn't get over enthusiastic and run too fast. 😂 I have a race in two days so I don't want to use up all my energy! This audiobook, written and read by Hope Jahren, is such good company for runs. I feel like I know her and Bill and am invested in their lives. As a side note, it's going to rain in the Bay Area today! 😄🌧️ #NFNov @Clwojick @rsteve388

Emilymdxn Do you live in the Bay Area?? Do you mind me asking where? I‘m so obsessed with that part of the world lol 3mo

Caterina @Emilymdxn Yes! I just moved to Berkeley in August to start seminary. Living here's been everything I hoped it would be! 😊 If you make it all the way out here to this piece of the world while I'm living here, let me know! I have an air mattress + kind of know the area. 😊 3mo
Emilymdxn @caterina incredible! I got to visit once when I was sixteen and loved it so much. I may be going to LA next year and I‘d love to make it into a bigger California trip but it will be very budget dependent lol 3mo
