Reader's Workouts - Hoofing it to the Beach

So I had no idea what to post today, I didn't have my planned book review written and then I saw this weekly event which is hosted over at Joy's Book Blog.



I'm a Fitbit wearer, I like that it helps me keep active and moving during the week.  If you also wear one feel free to friend me!

This holiday weekend wasn't a great one, but I did manage to get moving, unfortunately I didn't have my Fitbit on me and can't accurately tell how much I moved.  Yesterday (Monday), we went to the beach and got a late start which meant parking in East Bumbble F*ck.  So after hoofing it three blocks a young man (he was probably my age but still) offered us his parking spot, so I hoofed it back to our car to then drove up to park closer. With the walk across the beach, and then back to the car, and then a three hour shift at work, I totally got my steps in for the day!

  1. I've had my FitBit for a couple of months and it's so helpful! It gets me to move, even when I'm not thinking of it as exercise.


    Glad to have you join Readers' Workouts!

  2. Have you started to feel bare when you forget to put it on for the day (if you have forgotten it)?

  3. Worse than that, I resent every step I take that doesn't get counted!

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
