With all the Halloween festivities, this snuck right up on me! #botm picks now completed. ✅

PerksOfBeingABookworm These are the two I‘m trying to choose between! I keep telling myself I should only get one because I won‘t have time to read until mid-December. But... when has that ever stopped me from buying books before? 😅 1mo

I‘ve been in a terrible reading slump lately that I CANNOT seem to shake.

Went to the Half Price Books Tent Sale today hoping something would tempt me. But it was small and crowded and only found a few things in the end. Still slumping. 🤨😖

Because my drive to work has been awful lately, with tons of construction delays, I‘ve taken to audio driving. So now my #bookoutlet orders look like this! 👀 📚

CoverToCoverGirl Nice! I love audiobooks, I listen to at least one or two a week, especially while I‘m walking or when I‘m to busy to sit and read a physical book. 6mo
stacybmartin Audiobooks are awesome - with a one hour commute each way to work and a lab job where I‘m alone most of the time, I listen to A LOT. Thankfully, my library carries them now so I can borrow tons. 💜 6mo

After reading How to Walk Away a few months ago, I‘ve been anxious to read more by Katherine Center. I‘m about a third of the way through this one and I‘m really liking it so far.

Making Faces | Amy Harmon
post image
Pickpick

Amy Harmon was a new discovery for me. This book secured her spot on my reading list.

It‘s a love story, but not exactly a romance. There‘s a girl who loves a boy, a small town that loves their kids, a Pastor who loves his flock, a group of lifelong pals, teammates and soldiers, who love each other and their country, and a girl who loves her imperfect friends but doesn‘t quite love herself.

It‘s not all love but heartache too. Be prepared.

The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel | Diane Setterfield

I started this audio book today.

I‘ve only tried an audiobook once and I was constantly getting distracted. My mind wandered and I‘d miss whole passages. Let‘s see if I have better luck this time.

MarriedtoMrT I have very specific tasks I can do while listening: walking, driving, cleaning, puzzling. If I have too much on my mind or if it‘s something I have to concentrate too hard on or not enough on (like when I‘m just sitting) my mind wanders too much. I hope you find your audio groove! 7mo
julesG Mind wandering, getting distracted, falling asleep, missing parts... It happens. Depending on the book, I go back a few minutes or I roll with it. 7mo
Cortg Good luck! I usually do audiobooks as rereads, nonfiction or books I‘m curious about but not dying to read, that way if my mind wanders a bit, I‘m ok with it. I did listen to this one on audio! 7mo

CoverToCoverGirl I hope you had success listening this time! 7mo
TaciturnWhenReading @MarriedtoMrT @JulesG @Cortg @emz711 @CoverToCoverGirl Thanks all! I‘ve been listening only when driving to/from work. The story has grabbed me - the narration is really well done - so it‘s been much easier to stay focused this time! 7mo

I bought this as a going away gift for an expat in our office who goes back to Japan next week. He‘s very sad to be leaving the US and he and his family had a great time traveling to the national parks while they were here. I hope it‘s a nice reminder of his time here with us.
