10 Books in 10 Days- Strong is the New Beautiful

Can I just be real for a minute?

I picked this book because it was short. Okay? I wasn’t REALLY interested in what a skier had to say about fitness. I mean, sure, Lindsay Vonn is a great athlete, but a skier fitness book? Really? It was the title that sold me. Strong is the New Beautiful? That’s an amazing title. Continue reading 10 Books in 10 Days- Strong is the New Beautiful

10 Books in 10 Days- The Alchemist

The Alchemist has been on my to read list since 2007. When I thought of doing 10 books in 10 days, I decided to look into this book on Scribd. This app has become a life-changer. For $8.99 a month, I can download and listen to as many books as I like. I’ll admit, Scribd doesn’t have every title I am looking for, but they have a lot. Like The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

10 Books in 10 Days- The Blood Sugar Solution

10 Books in 10 Days

I’m gearing up to move to the mainland for a month while Chris is recuperating from his kidney transplant, and I play nurse-maid. I am wanting to finish a couple of books with Chris’ help, and work on my big projects of ZooFit- How Animals Changed My Health and Fitness, Stupid Questions, and Conservation Fitness Guide.

Finishing these projects will be a huge deal. I have a lot of work before they are ready to be sent off. One of those tasks is reading and studying comparable titles. I have the Scribd app on my phone which is perfect for listening to books while at work or in the car. Continue reading 10 Books in 10 Days

30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 27- Reading Nature

Knowing I was doing this experiment, I tried to focus my reading to books on nature. I have way too many books in my “to read” pile, but this month I whittled down the list a little. Okay, a smidge. Okay, a fraction of a smidge. Continue reading 30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 27- Reading Nature

30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 24- Green Hour

I finished The Nature Principle and was going to type up notes from the book, but I’ve been a little pre-occupied by other projects. I’ll be sure to get the notes out before the end of my Experience Nature project. Some of the information in the book is too important not to share.  Continue reading 30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 24- Green Hour
