Week 5 photo challenge for #BFC
I love this quote. In this case, it reminds me it‘s about being active, taking care of myself and eating better. The numbers on the scale will go down, I‘ll be more focused and feel better if I focus on my actions and making good choices.

The vertigo has been bad this week so it‘s been audiobooks and meditation for me. Definitely making sure I‘m taking care of me. Sherlock has been taking care of me, too. 🐶 I‘m currently listening to the tagged book and I‘m enjoying it. #BFC

I received Ruby Red from a fellow Litten whose daughter loved it and is also a huge Sherlock Holmes 🕵️‍♂️ fan. It was a great fit for me. It was my favorite read of the challenge until I finished the audio of book 2, Sapphire Blue. Now I can‘t choose.

I‘ve been on medical leave for 6 months. 6 months were I haven‘t been allowed to do any exercising. I can now start walking and using a stationary bike. Today I had testing that aggravated my symptoms.

So for the 1st day of #BookFitnessChallenge I did some meditating and listened to an audiobook. Hopefully tomorrow I‘ll be able to do more.

#whodunitbymail group: this is my last update since @Tiffy_Reads is back and can take over again. This is what I have for where we should be through Nov 5 mailing based on those who have dropped out and requested their books now vs end of our complete sharing cycle. Of course, if the previous mailing wasn‘t executed as planned, we‘ll have errors on this.
@Tiffy_Reads

Susanita I sent Suspect X to @AndreaReads about a month ago, and based on other posts I think there‘s nothing coming to me for at least one more round. But I could be wrong... 13mo
BookishBelle I bought A Hidden Fire and sent it on to @ReadingEnvy for the 9/24 mailing. She should be getting ready to send it on for the 11/5 mailing. So where you have none for us should have that book‘s name there. 13mo
ReadingEnvy @BookishBelle yes, this is accurate. 13mo

Karen Any idea who is in and who is out? 13mo
kspenmoll I have not received a book in months, consequently I have no book to send. ☹️ 12mo
Emiller @Kangaj1 I received A Coffin for Dimitrios today and will mail on to @NovelGirl82 this week. I don‘t think you got the email that I left the group. 12mo
NovelGirl82 @Captivatedbybooks I have books ready to send you, but have not made it to the post office. I‘m so sorry that I‘m so late, but things have been happening that have made me very out of the loop for the last month or so. I will get them to the post office this week. 12mo
Kangaj1 @Emiller thanks for letting me know...I had no idea. @NovelGirl82 I will need to get/find your address. 12mo

I really did enjoy this thriller. @Cinfhen I think you should give it a try. Harlan Coben recently said that Pinborough is about to become our new obsession. I 💙 Harlan Coben so it was more than enough to get me to give it a shot. 🤓

Read4life @Cinfhen I would borrow if there‘s another BOTM pick you‘re really interested in. I got an e-ARC and feel it would have been a borrow for me otherwise. (But I can borrow from work so don‘t have to be on a waiting list) 1y

BookishBelle Hey, I don‘t mind buying Hidden Fire and sending it out after I read it since it‘s my book for next time. I don‘t want to step on anybody‘s toes though. 1y
Read4life You‘re all very welcome. I knew some people hadn‘t had any books for awhile while others were getting slammed. Those of you who have or will receive more than 1 book only need to send 1 out each mailing. Or send what you‘ve read. If you can read them in order that‘d be great and make future tracking easier. I didn‘t want anyone to miss a book so I didn‘t spread them to other members. 1y
Read4life @Marmie7 @BookishBelle has generously offered to replace Hidden Fire as she is the one who gets it next. Are you good with that? 1y
Marmie7 @BookishBelle That's very kind of you! Thank you🙂 1y
BookishBelle No problem! I hate that you won‘t get all the journal entries that were lost but at least we‘ll keep the mailing schedule a little more intact. @Marmie7 1y
PatriciaU Is there a revised mailing schedule? I know there will be some who don‘t have a book this month. I‘ve just sent Devotion of Suspect X on to @Susanita and know that @MrsV does not have a book to send to me this month. Can she expect a book to come her way soon? she has not had a book since she mailed me Devotion of Suspect X. 1y
Read4life @PatriciaU We‘re not changing the mailing dates unless the group as a whole feels changes are needed. As you can see in the above chart, @kspenmoll will be sending @MrsV a book when she finished it. Unfortunately 2 members (for their own reasons) got behind and had 4-5 books each. This really backed up several of us getting books each rotation. It also means 5 books were being sent to @Anovelobsession at once. Because you guys are missing books 1y
Read4life Cont.... I suggest that the first 3 of that group of five get mailed out in order as they are finished so @kspenmoll @MrsV @PatriciaU and @Susanita can get caught up. 1y

Jess7 Hey everyone! I have been out of whodunitbymail for about 8 months.. I sent the last book I received from @EllieDottie to @Tiffy_Reads back in December and I haven‘t received any whodunit books since. I assume @EllieDottie has been sending her books straight to @Tiffy_Reads I enjoyed this, but I realized I was struggling to get the books finished in a month and I wasn‘t really enjoying the cozy mystery genre. I think thrillers are more up my ally. 1y
Jess7 Also — When I quit in December I let @Tiffy_Reads know that I was donating the book I purchased originally (the Safest Lies by Megan Miranda) and the corresponding journal) to the group so it could keep getting passed around if you all wanted it. I do not need it back. But like I said — I passed on the Book I received in December to Tiffany, and haven‘t received any since. 1y
kspenmoll I currently have no book. 1y
JoeStalksBeck I haven Rosanna, The Safest Lies, Ill Eat When I‘m Dead and And Then She Was Gone. They keep coming so fast I can‘t read them all so I‘m just gonna pack all this and send it out 1y
Read4life Wow! @JoeStalksBeck that‘s crazy! I think you have almost as many books now as some of us have had the entire time! 1y
Read4life @JoeStalksBeck Once I hear from @Alfoster & @NovelGirl82 I can finalize the updated list. However, it looks like you‘ll be keeping Roseanna & Safest Lies until our September mailing. If you want to send I‘ll Eat When I‘m Dead & And Then She Was Gone to @Anovelobsession that‘d be great. 1y
Mdargusch Yikes! What a mess! 1y
NovelGirl82 I have Zig Zag Girl & The Rope 1y
JoeStalksBeck @Read4life hey just skip me the next couple times. I can‘t read all these and all it‘s doing is costing me money to send them back out 1y

#whodunitbymail group — I‘m waiting for 10 more responses and I‘ll be able to send out the updated list. It seems we may be missing a couple of books and we‘ve had a few books end up out of order. 🤪 We‘ll get it straightened out (🤞🏻) and know what everyone should be receiving from the August mailing.

#whodunitbymail group- I hope this isn‘t stepping on toes. It feels like we need to regroup. I took the updated list @AndreaReads sent us and set up this spreadsheet. Please comment below with what book you currently have in your possession. I‘ve listed which book I think we should have received on our last mail date of 7/2. The highlighted titles belongto members who dropped out. At least 1 told us to keep the book in circulation.

Read4life @kspenmoll @Mdargusch @Kangaj1 Sorry for misspelling your handles. 😔 1y
Read4life @Karen It never lets me tag you except in the comments. 😜 1y
Kangaj1 I have Flying Too High as indicated 1y

Captivatedbybooks I currently do not have a book. The last book i had was A is for Alibi. 1y
That-Bookish-Hiker When did she send this out? I don‘t think I got it. I have Let us Prey. 1y
Emiller I have In Cold Blood and will be mailing it soon 1y
Karen I have A is for Alibi. 1y
Karen I don‘t see A is for Alibi on your list. 1y
leslieseidel A is for Alibi was my choice that replaced The American Girl 1y
leslieseidel I have Still Mine and Behind Closed Doors 1y
leslieseidel To really confuse things, The Three Evangelists somehow got out of sequence. I received it prior to Still Mine and Behind Closed Doors. It currently resides with @Bklover 1y
TheWordJar I currently have The Keepsake/Black Orchids (which arrived together, maybe because Black Orchids dropped out) and just recently received A Rumor Of Bones. Almost done with The Keepsake and will be sending that on, along with Black Orchids, soon. 1y
MaleficentBookDragon I do not have any books at the moment. 1y
ReadingEnvy I currently have Death at La Fenice just as I should. 1y
Read4life @That-Bookish-Hiker She sent out an updated participant list in January. I set the spreadsheet up today. 1y
BookishBelle I currently have A Coffin for Dimitrios. 1y
dariazeoli I currently have no book, but The Three Evangelists is en route to me! 1y
Mdargusch I have My Sunshine Away. Thanks for doing this! 1y
Marmie7 This is awesome! I have IQ. 1y
Susanita I never got Hidden Fire or Devotion of Suspect X. A couple days ago I sent I‘ve Got You Under My Skin to @AndreaReads so I don‘t have a book ATM. 1y
AndreaReads @Read4life You are my favorite person! Thank you! I was thinking that I needed to update this list, but I didn‘t have a lot of time this last week. I am notoriously slow about passing my books along to Leslie, but right now she has Still Mine and Behind Closed Doors (since I‘ve already read it), so I am without a book right now. Though I‘m happy to go borrow either Hidden Fire or Devotion of Suspect X. 1y
Anovelobsession I have He Will Be My Ruin - planned on sending it out to kspenoll on Monday 1y
EllieDottie I have every last lie and vinyl detective! I just sent Camino island! And I sent generation lost to tiffyreads a month ago! I also think jess7 bowed out, because I send to tiffyreads now!! 1y
Jess7 Yep, I‘ve been out since December. I mailed the last book @EllieDottie sent me back then to @Tiffy_Reads and I havent received anything since. I let @Tiffy_Reads know the group or herself could keep the book and journal I originally bought for the group. I do not need it back. I am sorry I had to bow out but I realized cozy mysteries aren‘t really my thing.. I think psychological thrillers are more up my ally. I‘m sorry but I quit in December. 💜 1y
kspenmoll In total I have only received 8 books. I think I was caught in between two who disappeared. Last books I sent awhile back to @MrsV , sounds like she sent them on , Devotion of Suspect X was one, the other by Mary Higgins Clark - which came to me from @Anovelobsession (edited) 1y
MrsV Yes, @kspenmoll, those were the last two I read and mailed on. 1y
kspenmoll @MrsV That‘s what I thought! 1y
Bklover I currently don‘t have a book. I recently mailed The Three Evangelists to @dariazeoli And thank you for doing this!!! 1y
Alfoster I don‘t have anything either. @Tiffy_Reads hasn‘t sent one in months. I assumed it‘s cause she‘s been ill. 1y

Finally read this classic mystery. The narration by Kenneth Branagh was fantastic.

I‘m starting the e-ARC of this one. Book 2 in the Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club. I highly recommend book 1 The Strange Case of the Alchemist‘s Daughter.
Love the covers of both, too. 💙🤓

ladym30 Great cover!! 1y

I really enjoy the writing of B.A. Paris. Fast paced with enough twists to keep me guessing. So thankful I had the e-ARC of this one.

Read4life @ptkpepe98 I agree. So good! 1y

Hey #whodunitbymail ladies. This is in answer to the questions posted on Goodreads. Hope I‘m not overstepping @Tiffy_Reads These are the two previous posts I‘ve been using. Read lines are those who no longer participate. Ignore the yellow highlighting—that‘s me tracking the books I‘ve sent to @Marmie7
Is this still accurate @Tiffy_Reads ?

leslieseidel This answers a question I just put on Goodreads!!! Thank you. I couldn't find the mailing order in my stuff and here it is!! 1y
Read4life @leslieseidel You‘re welcome. I saw the messages on Goodreads and responded but thought this might help. 1y
Jess7 Not sure what the yellow means but I‘ve been out since December. I sent the last book I received to @Tiffy_Reads at that time and as far as I know she received it bc I think I saw a picture back then. I havent received any books since then but my original book (The Safest Lies) is still in rotation as far as I know. I let Tiffany know the group or her could keep it and the journal. I do not need it back. 1y

I love Dick Van Dyke and was happy to listen to him narrate his book. I enjoyed his stories and his opinions/points of view on a wide range of topics.
I did think it would be a bit funnier but still a “pick” for me.

I loved this book! The daughters of some of literature‘s best villains come together with Sherlock & Watson to solve a mystery.

Book 2 is out in July.

$1.99 ebook at B&N and Apple iBooks.

jmtrivera I was trying to decide whether to grab it. Thanks for helping! 1y
Read4life @jmtrivera Hope you enjoy it! 1y
