Reader's Workout: The Color Run aftermath

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


I woke up Saturday morning with some slight back pain. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to do the walk, but was determined to show up to support the rest of my group. I got there and took my time walking around to get signed in and trying to find the group. My back was feeling okay so I did the walk.

I had so much fun, but couldn't stick around for the after party. My back just couldn't handle standing much longer. I spent the rest of the day just chilling in the house with a friend. It was worth it!


  1. It's great that you went ahead and did it even though you were in pain!!
    Hope you're back is much better now!

  2. Yay -- 12,000 steps is a lot! That's a lot of blue you got there.

    I find it harder on my back to stand than walk. I did some work with yoga and figured out a way to stand that works better with my back (hips tucked under with knees slightly bent), but even that only works for so long.

  3. Yea I really got hit with the blue. Yellow was the least, confined mostly to my right ear. Purple was my back but only because my friend rubbed her's off on me.

    Walking was okay, it was the standing that started to bother me. I end up pacing during the day when my back starts to bother me.

  4. My back is getting there. Thanks!

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!

The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover

Real series by Katy Evans

Vintage by Susan Gloss

I Love This Bar by Carolyn Brown

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 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…
