The Wednesdays | Julie Bourbeau
post image

1. Liane Moriarty does a good job deepening her character‘s back stories.
2. As a teen, Go Ask Alice
3. Nonfiction and probably Chick lit

1. I used to read off of my phone but often if I need a book along I tuck my kindle in my purse or put my headphones in for audible.
2. My kindle, I most recently bought the Oasis in a “treat yo self” moment. I‘ve had a kindle since the beginning, no regrets! It was amazing to have the whisper sync - downloads anywhere, at that time it felt like magic.
@JenReadsAlot thanks for the tag!

History of Wild Places | Shea Ernshaw
post image
Pickpick

Somehow this seems like an appropriate book to finish after midnight on New Year‘s Day…it was creepy but also oddly captivating. It felt reminiscent of Lost, living among others, like a cult. I‘m curious about her other books, I really enjoy an element of magical realism. In reviews I read the books she writes are “atmospheric”, I would agree that her writing is nearly the definition of the word.

CBee I loved this one by Ernshaw 3w

peaknit @UnidragonFrag well we keep doing Disney, and it‘s likely the last family vacation for my oldest daughter (21), so probably Disney lol. And thank you, I find maintaining running in winter is especially hard, sounds like we can relate lol! 3w

The #festivephotochallenge is favorite gift, I was spoiled with good Bombas socks and slippers, and my oldest daughter gets me, long walks to the library would be heaven, I may need to plan ahead for retirement to live walking distance from the library and wear these socks. #WinterGames2021

AmyG Bombas are the best socks. I had one of the original ones for probably 6 years? (edited) 3w

When I run or walk (or knit) with an audio book I pin the words for the #WinterGames2021 onto my sleeve and use a stitch counter to click when I hear a word from the list.
