A little reading while waiting for my massage...😍
I‘ve got my bagel, my book, and 5 days of work left until summer break!
I have never been as tired or stressed as I am these days, and reading has never felt quite as laborious as it has seemed recently. The shame of it is, is that I love reading more than anything else, and I just can‘t seem to ever feel relaxed enough to read anymore. Well I had a long car ride today and started this audiobook, and I love it. Nothing like a story about a book lover to bring a book lover back into business!
It has been months since I‘ve been able to sit down and enjoy a book. I decided to force it, despite being exhausted from my first week back at teaching and doing grad school work all day. I‘m glad I did. Enjoying this so far, even if some of the dialogue seems a little forced.
After a five month hiatus, I‘m back at it. This first discussion board post is taking longer than usual because I‘m so out of practice! Here‘s hoping I‘ll be able to get through this all (and still have enough time to read!!!!)
New homeowner as of this past September, and we know nothing about pools! All I know is I can‘t wait to sit poolside with a book! Happy summer!
Staring outside longingly after a week of rain. This turmeric latte is keeping me nice and cozy though as I wait it out!
I LOVE cookbooks, and I was waiting very impatiently for this new Inspiralized book to come out. It certainly did not disappoint! I can‘t wait to get cooking!
I love audiobooks. I listen to them when I am too busy to sit down and read- on the way to work and back, at the gym, and before I go to sleep. The problem with audiobooks is that you have to find the perfect marriage between story and storyteller for your preferences. I thoroughly enjoyed both, and although there were some predictable plot points, I was engaged enough to be terrified when my husband walked into the room last night!
I had a few long drives yesterday, and a few more over the next few days, so I was looking for an audiobook to hold my interest. While I‘m a little uncomfortable with the premise, I‘m certainly entertained!
Downed power lines and trees in my school district means my fourth day off of work this week. It‘s a good thing I have books to keep me company!
A little snow day reading...
At work with about a million things to do, and all I want to do is read.
On my way into the city to see Hamilton!! Not much in the mood these days to start a new book, so an old favorite it is. Kate Morton can transport me on this cold, dreary day.
Book lovers dilemma: get another coffee and keep reading at the store, buy it and read at home, or get it from the library (where there is always a wait!!)?
Taking five minutes from my lunch to read a little bit. I wasn‘t expecting to react as emotionally as I have been with this book- excellent start!
It sounds like it‘s going to be a mix between Rebecca and The Tea Rose- looking forward to starting (and drinking this hot chocolate)!
A page turner, to be sure, but there is one big question I am left with, that I don‘t think was fully explained. I tried going back and rereading to see if there was something I missed, but I can‘t figure out what happened to Ella/Lanie when she was first ‘abducted.‘ Did her Mom sell her to Tom? Why did the mom say she thought he‘d bring her back? It wasn‘t fully explained. Any insights appreciated
What‘s a girl to do on Christmas Eve when she is Jewish? Read!! And so far, I am not disappointed at all. (And in true Dan Brown fashion, the front and back flap hold a surprise for anyone who looks carefully enough!)
One of my favorite books to read to my students - I can not wait to see the movie!!
Not reading for two months has left me famished for books! Finished The Twilight Wife...I couldn‘t put it down! Now laying on the couch while my husband watches TV and I‘m fully engrossed in Behind Her Eyes. Hoping to finish tonight. That will hold me over for a while. God, I love reading.
