Good Luck Book Club

Ok, so I've decided to broaden my horizons.  I'm in a book club.

If anyone knows anything about me, it's that the last thing I can do is sit and read a book.

It's a sad state of events, seeing as though I'm an educator of kids, and an adult whom has made her way through a degree in education and a master's degree as well.

I know how to read.  I have read before.  I've used to read the comics every Sunday in the Detroit Free Press and News.  I somehow made my way through the inner workings of all kinds of famous writers from crazy books and novels in college.

And now, I'm in a book club.  The book that was discussed tonight was called "Gone Girl".   It sounded like a book  I'd try to steer clear of.  From what I understand it had a lot of lies, completely psychotic behavior, deceit, and all kinds of death, murder and stuff that would make me have a hard time falling asleep at night.
Having said that, I'm ready to delve in.  I've got this book on lock, and I'm going to go for it.  The ultimate summer read.  Why not?

In a world where I'm perfectly content with the big day where The Duncans decide what to name their new baby on "Good Luck Charlie"...I need to get a life, really.  Is this what actual adults do?

I believe that branching out is going to be a good thing.  It will ultimately give me something to think about on my runs.  Today, I had a hard time.  It was like hearing myself breathe was making me irritated.  Um...sorry, but that's a must.  I've got to give myself some depth this summer.  Being off from school, must have given my brain the ok to stop al function beyond necessity.
I'm excited to see what's next on the list for this book club.  I'm calling it "Opperation Brain Stimulation".

It's been a rough week to say the least.  Pretty much running and most forms of formal exercise have been put on the back burner...but today was an inaugural run.  I felt good.  I felt "back".  And I felt ready.  Running is usually a time for me to think...a little...and maybe reflect and relax...but I was a little scared to be alone with my thoughts these past few days.  Today was ok.  There's no way to deny that running just kind of gets me back on track.  Whatever track that might be.  I love to run.  And, maybe, just maybe, I love to read too!?

What's the last book you've read? -- The Twighlight series.  holy crap, I'm serious.

What's your favorite book you've read?


  1. The last book I read was Gone Girl! I loved it. A page turner and definitely unpredictable. I can't pick one favorite book--no way. Too many good ones.

  2. Visiting from Exposure 99% weekday Blog hop!
