Reader's Workout: Color Run (Walk)

Reader's Workouts is a weekly event which is hosted over at Joy's Book Blog.




---


I didn't hit any of my goals this week.  It was a slightly painful week for me. I work up Wednesday and felt a sharp pain in my left shoulder. I had limited movement in my head and it turn to really move at all. I called out of work, iced it and was very thankful that I had an appointment with my chiropractor later in the day.  As the pain of that started to go away I started to get pain in my sciatic. So again I was thankful to have an appointment with my chiropractor Monday morning and now I'll be going back tomorrow (Wednesday) night for another appointment.

I'm hoping (and if you could send positive vibes my way) to be back in walking shape for Saturday.  I'm walking a Color Run this weekend.  If you don't know a Color Run is a 5K where at various points along the route you get hit with colored powder (see image above). So at the end of it all you are a rainbow mess of color.  I'm signed up with a group and I believe only 2 of us are walking. Wish me luck!

I'll report back next week, with some pictures.

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:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read. But…

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!

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
