Haven‘t been on here for a while because I‘ve been so busy that reading has taken a back seat. But it still holds such an enormous part of my heart. So much so that I have decided to declare my love for it permanently on my skin. #literarytattoo #literaryink

There‘s not many of these I haven‘t done. I‘m close to having read all of Jodi Picoults books but I‘m not quite there. I also didn‘t check the $50 one because I don‘t know what that would be in my currency but I never did that while in the States.

Today I did something new, I donated blood for the first time. Honestly I was surprised at how sore I found it. But blood saves lives and that makes the pain worthwhile so I will probably go back in 8 weeks again. Continued with some of the monster that is Outlander. About 70% through now so slowly but surely reaching the end.

BookwormAHN Great job, but wow that's a big needle 👏🏻 6mo
ladym30 That is truly nice of you, but one scary needle! 6mo
RebL I freak at the sight of needles. Even so, thanks for the donation. 6mo

Today I found this for $2 at a second hand book sale. I actually really like the fact that it looks used, I feel like it adds to the affect of what the story tells. I‘ve been listening to it on Audible but I‘m grateful to find a physical copy. #secondhand

I was put on bed rest for a week and had no energy to even read never mind go for a walk. So I lost a lot of time on the #bookfitnesschallenge. For this week I am trying to simply build my strength back up, eat properly and keep my fluids up. While watching a lot of Downton Abbey I did have the opportunity to knit this blanket for Aaron and I really love how it turned out. As an update on books, I have finished one.

Louise Lovely blanket! Good healing to you! 7mo

Finally half way through. I love Jamie Frasier!

Birdsong28 This is the best way to read this series I have found as some of the lengthy passages would have lost my interest if had physically read it. Also Jamie is so dreamy! 😍😍😍 I have bookmark saying my heart belongs to a 18th century red headed Scottish Highlander 7mo
ReadWithAJ @Birdsong28 I agree that I would have lost interest had it not been for Davina Porter. When I was reading I wondered where the book was gonna go for another several hundred pages (or thousand if you consider the series) now I don‘t care I just love listening 7mo
CrowCAH I agree; I‘ve only listened (so far the first two books). It definitely helps push the story along. 7mo
Sarah1960 Completed the series and through it all Jamie is sooooo my book crush boyfriend He is still the VERY BEST!!!!! LOL 😂 7mo
Sarah1960 Absolutely the best series ever! Loved every precious moment of these books. 📚❤️📚❤️📚❤️ 7mo

I‘m participating in Bingoathon this week while working on #BookFitnessChallenge. I‘m curious to see if I can actually finish 9 reads, my 31 books goal isn‘t going super well but if I can do it over two months I‘d still be super proud of myself. The point was to be reading more and I‘m definitely doing that, Litsy has been such a help to me because I feel like I‘m reading with friends and the accountability and inspiration is amazing.

BookwormAHN You can do it 🍀 7mo
dariazeoli Good luck!🍀 7mo
4thhouseontheleft Reading more is always the biggest benefit! 😍 7mo

I was out and about the whole day yesterday and didn‘t have access to WiFi so I wasn‘t able to make a day 1 post but I did reach my water goal and listened to two hours of Outlander (the narrator is amazing and actually narrated a book I had on cassette tape as a child). Hoping to get a lot of reading done today while I supervise homework and projects.

Heroine | Mindy McGinnis

Pickpick

This month I am going to try and finish 31 books. I will not necessarily have begun the book this month so it won‘t exactly be a book a day. I will also allow myself to reread. But I need this challenge in order to stop myself from spending so much time on my phone. The first book I completed was Heroine by Mindy McGinnis, had an hour left on my audiobook this morning. 5/5 Stars. #AJreads31books
