Bought this book for my niece - the illustrations are gorgeous. Highly recommended!

Plus it matches the #mermaid puzzle we put together today.

I only just bought this one, so I haven‘t started reading it yet. As soon as I finish The Beekeeper of Aleppo I plan on starting on some of these essays. I look forward to seeing a new perspective on the Middle East that I feel I don‘t often hear about.

I‘m starting my new book, got my frozen margarita, and a gorgeous view at sunset - I think I‘m set for the night.

I highly recommend this coming of age story. It was not quite what I expected when I first started reading it but Craig Davidson did an amazing job. It gave me a new outlook on how the human brain (and our memories) work. I loved it.

Started a new book to this wonderful view, the half hour hike down (and up) hill was torturous but we got our steps in today.

Can‘t beat the Mediterranean Sea.

crazyspine Beautiful. What do you think of the book? It's pretty weird (not in a bad way). 4mo

The Color of Magic | Terry Pratchett
post image

I wish I was reading to this view, Florence is amazing. I‘m in the middle of Terry Pratchett‘s ‘The Color of Magic‘ though (which is amazing so far). I‘ve read through plane rides and train rides, completely worth it for this view.

Plus the over 15 thousand steps that Erin and I put in exploring Italy today alone.

mc916 Beautiful!!! 5mo
wanderinglynn Gorgeous view! Enjoy your trip! 5mo

Got some reading material for my trip tomorrow! Haven‘t read Dante‘s Inferno since I took Italian in high school, but it‘s the best part of the Divine Comedy.

Italy, here we come!

crazyspine Have fun! 5mo

This is my first week check in!

Planning on finishing up my first book tonight if work is a bit slow on the overnight (or tomorrow when I have the night free). And I hit my fitness goal and I‘ve done 2 hours of yoga this week.

Okay, took me a bit to actually post this, but I‘ve been working on my goals for my fitness challenge!

My reading goals are to read 3 to 4 books and to work out 2 hours a week. I‘m hopeful to finish my goals although I know I‘ll be distracted for a couple weeks while I‘m abroad in Italy.

And I wish everyone luck on their goals!

crazyspine You'll be walking so much in Italy; that'll count as exercise. Eat all the pasta for me. 5mo

Rereading this well-loved book in anticipation of watching the new Amazon Prime series! This was one of my favorite books in high school and it has not lost any of its humor!
