Couple of updates - finally finished the Stanley Tucci book as part of #auldlangaspine @JenReadsAlot - it was really good - and made me want to visit all those restaurants and even want to cook (and I‘m not a cook lll!)
Also the #lmpbc #groupw book is coming back to you at @BookBosomed1 - sorry it‘s so late but it was mailed today. I enjoyed our round this time @julieclair @Deblovestoread

JenReadsAlot So glad you enjoyed that one! I listened to it but tempted to get the book for the recipes! 2w
julieclair I loved our LMPBC Winter round, too! @DebLovesToRead @BookBosomed1 The Winter Ghosts (which I loved!) will be on its way back to you next week, @Jerdencon . I‘m out of the country until Sunday. 2w
BookBosomed1 No problem. I‘m late this time, too. 2w

Jerdencon I‘m going to pick Meet me in Monaco @Deblovestoread @julieclair @Reggie 4w
Reggie Secretly that was the one I was hoping for. All of you had a book I almost chose for my 4 books and this was the one from yours, so yayyy! 4w

Not bad - but way short of my goal of 90! Since life has gotten busier from the COVID years less time to read so think I will make next years goal 75. This was the first time since 2015 I didn‘t meet my goal 😞
But onward to 2023 and lots more books and maybe sticking with all my challenges I signed up for and not dropping out by March lol!

Kaylamburson Same with me! First year since 2014 I haven‘t met my goal, but trying to remember that reading is just about the enjoyment and not about accomplishing an arbitrary goal. 71 is still a TON of books! 3mo
wanderinglynn (Do what I do, just lower your goal 🤫😉) Awesome job! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo

The Lost Girls of Willowbrook | Ellen Marie Wiseman

Wow - this book was so well written and hard to read at times.
One of my first jobs after grad school was working with the MR population in group homes. A good number of the residents there were people who had been at willowbrook- some had no family contact and most had some significant behavior difficulties that I‘m sure came from living in that hell hole. So sad…

Is anyone listening to this podcast? It‘s basically a serialized audio book (but with various actors doing the voices). It‘s sort of a loose follow up to sister stardust by Jane Green - started listening today and so far I like it - except the accent of the actor playing the main character goes in and out and is a bit annoying! Lol

Lost 5 lbs (down 11 now!), exercise bike 21/30 days, walk 6500 steps 26/30 days, and read 2/5 books (life got busy but summer vacation is here! 🎉🎉)
