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:

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!
