October runs and reads

I came in at 67 miles for October, which was lower than my previous months but definitely expected as I hit the end of pregnancy.  My highest mileage day was 7.25, when I did 4 in the morning and 3.25 more when I met up with Kimberly for some trails.  I’m on the treadmill now pretty much all the time.  I started because it was getting super cold in the mornings, but I’ve stayed there because I figure this late in my pregnancy maybe it’s wiser to run at home in case labor would start up.  And it’s still been pretty cold in the mornings, or rainy.  Although I’ll admit that on some afternoons when the sun is out and the leaves are all so pretty I am itching to go for a second run and enjoy that fall air.  Maybe that needs to happen this weekend.

This month I read 9 books:

  • The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown – I’ve had a gift certificate to the local bookstore for almost a year and never used it.  It’s REALLY hard for me to buy books because I don’t want to buy a book I’ve never read and then hate it.  But I bit the bullet and picked this one out and guess what?  I liked it!
  • the Harry Potter series – once a year I read the series again.  I read this completely out of order but yeah, loved it again.  As always.
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon – I haven’t had a chance to get to the library lately so I’ve been re-reading books off my bookshelf and it had been awhile since I’d read this one.  It’s so good!

I finished The Curious Incident a week or two ago and haven’t picked up a book since.  I need to go to the library, as I’m completely unmotivated to re-read any books on the shelf right now.

Do you have any book recommendations for me?  I’m hoping to get to the library soon!

  1. Lordy, I’ve barely read since my daughter was born 2 years ago. This needs to change! Good idea about pulling books off of my own bookshelf – I know I have a ton of great ones!
