I do other stuff besides run!

I promise I do have a life outside of running. It’s just so easy to talk about running and working out. It’s easy to post goals and new products. It’s weird that I waited until age 35 to find this passion in life!

But, I do have other interests and this blog was/is supposed to be about my life, not just running. So, without further ado, here’s one other thing I love to do!

I love to read, in fact, I’m in a book club. We are an awesome book club, we call ourselves ‘Bad Girlz Read Books’. Go ahead, laugh if you want, but we rock! I’ve been soooo busy lately at work and in life that I have missed a few of the books recently. We just started a new list and the 1st one up is a book I chose so I better read it. It’s called “The End of your Life Book Club” by Will Schwalbe. I downloaded it on my iPad, it’s my first time. I like to have books I can hold.

I’m only in chapter 2, but so far I’m hooked. I’ll keep you posted.

Here are some of the books we’ve read this year (or last) that I’ve loved:

  • The Paris Wifem Paula McClain
  • The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern
  • Unbroken, Laura Hillendrand
  • The Book Thief, Marcus Zusak
  • Firefly Lane, Kristin Hannah

Read any good books lately? What do you do in your “spare” time?

    I was in a book club that read The Paris Wife and The Night Circus which I both LOVED. I want The Night Circus to be made into a movie!

    Loved Firefly Lane! Thanks for this post I needed some new book recommendations!

  3. I love to read. Like I’m a Literary Junkie..lol and a book hoarder. ;) I also co-host a monthly online book club under the name Literary Junkies…so if you feel like you’d like to add another book club to your belt, you are welcome to join! We’ve read Night Circus (loved it!), The American Heiress (Daisy Jacobs…enjoyed it), The Casual Vacancy (J.K. Rowling…hated it), The Paris Wife (enjoyed it…got Paula McLain to sign a copy for one of our book club members), Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn…that one was good!). We are in the process of reading Diamond in the Rough: A Memoir by Shawn Colvin (the singer..known for the song Sunny Came Home). I’ve already finished. I didn’t know a thing about her, so that was fun to get to know about a musician. Our next book is Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick.

      I’m not sure I could keep up with another set of books this time of year but I may check out those suggestions. We will be reading Gone Girl this year too. Thanks for stopping by!
