Reader's Workout - Back to the Gym

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


I've been slacking in my attendance at the gym. Without someone to go with me, I find I can easily talk myself out of going.  This week my friend and gym buddy went back to her school schedule which means we can get to the gym together on Tuesdays. In my book, one day is better than no days.

My goal for this week is to not talk myself out of going to the gym on Thursday. I find I need the treadmill to get a good walk in, otherwise I find a walk around the block turns into a slow meander while I listen to my audiobook.

Yesterday, I didn't start a new audiobook. I wanted to finish another episode of:

I love this podcast and sadly over the spring/summer I fell behind in listening. I caught up and only have to listen to the new episode that came out Monday. 

So Thursday, I'm going to have to start a new audiobook and I have no idea what to listen too. I currently have a number of books waiting to be heard on my audible account.  

I'm leaning towards:
  • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz narrated by Anne Hathaway
  • I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teach I Ever Had by Tony Danza (who also narrates)
  • Joyland by Stephen King
I don't know which to choose first. 

Hope your week is going good!


  1. I love listening to audio books while I walk on my treadmill! I'm starting Fatal Catch by Roxe Anne Peacock tomorrow.

    I love SK books!!

  2. I'm still working my way through podcasts. I ended up subscribing to a few more the last few weeks (I don't know why) so those have been keeping me company on my 'walks'.

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!
