This week has been extra exciting for me because someone FINALLY logged one of the books I set free via Bookcrossing. I think I may have found the perfect level of overkill to ensure that people at least consider logging their find. You just have to put stickers on ALL the sides, add a bookmark that gives them specific instructions, and put it all in a bag that also tells them what to do.

  • The History Chicks
  • Stuff You Missed in History Class (the episodes are so short that I didn’t feel like linking ALL of them)
    • Did Genghis Khan really kill 1,748,000 people in one hour?
    • The Elizabeth Bathory Episode: Was a Hungarian countess the world’s most prolific serial killer?
    • Fact or Fiction: Is D.B. Cooper still alive?
    • Ergot and the Salem Witchtrials
    • The Cursed Tomb of King Tut
    • What was in Peter the Great’s cabinet of curiosities?
    • How the First Olympics Worked

coffee-drink-2433133_640.jpgIt doesn’t happen often, but I try to make lunch at home when I have to work in the office all weekend. Even if that means I just buy a pre-made salad from the store, at least I’m not going out to a fast food place. When I’m working at the bookstore, it’s a bit more difficult. I usually end up eating both breakfast and lunch in the Food Court. I have been attempting to make healthier choices with all my meals though, and I usually take a lot less food that I would have previously. I’m trying to listen to my body more to determine when I am actually hungry and when I am full.

Today I also started writing down my healthy living intentions, including days when I plan to go to the gym. I have this fancy day planner that rarely gets used properly because I only fill out the monthly calendar portion. I decided to use the weekly layouts to highlight all the days I want to workout, when bills are due, what I’ve been spending my money on, and other personal events that aren’t going to take the whole day to complete.


Once again, a sad showing for my blog posts. I need to start reviewing books again. Stay tuned… they are coming.
