It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I love this meme, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

We saw Saving Mr Banks on the weekend, I adored Mary Poppins as a child ... ok still do, just beautiful and sad too, I cried ... a lot, such a sookie.

#bookblogwalkers update #6: Felicia's Book Blog Walkers ~ a good week for me. 

Mon - 45 min walk with Bella
Tue - 45 min walk with Bella
Wed - no walk 
Thurs - 40 min walk with Bella
Fri - 30 min stroll 
Sat - 40 min walk with Bella
Sun - 1.5 hours foreshore walk with Bella ... almost 10km and it was fun, didn't even feel like exercise. Topped off with sunset and fish and chips :)

  1. Congrats on your successful week of walking. The Olympics are distracting me from reading so I won't get to Lost Lake as soon as I want. Have a great week.

  2. Walking looks great - I am about to head out soon into the rain. Its cooler too, which is nice and not so nice. Loved Lost Lake too. Was a bit disappointed with Evening Stars, didn't think it was the quality of the first two in the series. I expect much from my top authors!! Picky!

  3. You did great with your walks, I was lazy ..well not all the time but still

  4. Good for you that you were able to persist with the walking. So tough to do it daily.

  5. You done a lot of walking... I wish I was able to get out more at the moment however incessant rain doesn't make for good walking weather! I love that sunset picture.
    Happy Reading!

  6. I'm really looking forward to One Plus One now.

  7. You had a great week of walking. Our temps are still keeping me indoors. My Fitbit isn't getting much of a workout. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great reading week!

  8. You are doing great with the walking! I keep finding excuses, and then manage to get in some feeble attempts...LOL. Must do better!

    I can't wait to get One Plus One...and Lost Lake.

    January Wish looks intriguing. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. I am looking forward to getting my hands on One Plus One and Lost Lake. Enjoy!

  16. Love the pics! I also enjoyed Lost Lake. Sad that we have to wait for another SAA book! Maybe I should re-read her novels. I've liked each of them!

  17. The Summer Queen looks great for those of us who are snowbound! Those beach pictures look pretty good too!

    Have a great week!

  18. You are doing great. I love walking and can't wait for spring when I can start walking with Gage again. I've had to focus on the food this winter. I've lost 8.5 pounds since the beginning of the year :)
