I finally made it to my apartment in Cleveland. I had all about all of Ky that I could take.  I tried reading Ringworld on the way up here but my stepfather erratic driving prevented me from doing anything productive. I even tried blogging to no avail. I felt like I was gonna puke, so I just listened to Hamilton on Spotify over and over again. It was a ten-hour drive so u can imagine how many times I listened to it.I LOVE the Hamilton soundtrack. I wish I could see the musical in person. Maybe someday.

Did you know that Goodreads now tracks rereads and that it will count toward your yearly goal now? In the past that always got to me that I couldn’t count rereads toward my yearly goal. I must not have been the only one cause now they fixed it to where you re-reads will count! That pleases me to no end. What can I say I am easily amused.

I was hoping to get to the library yesterday, but I did not make it. I got like 25 books waiting for me. I wanted my mom to take me, but I will just take a Uber either today or tomorrow and get my books. My reading slump is over so YAY!! I swear being in Ky so much time depressed the hell outta me, and I have had a complete life slump.I now feel that I am back from vacation mode and am ready to get my year started. I know it is late but I felt as if time was frozen in KY and now I am back to life again.

I am re-reading Ringworld. I read it years ago but get this I had NO IDEA there were books after the first one, so I want to read them all, and I have forgotten when happened in the first book, so I am starting allll over.

I got some codes for free audiobooks. I know I want the Desire Map on both ebook and audiobook and I am not sure for the other three. I want to get them on a book I already own so I can read and listen.

On the health front, something strange has happened. I found I can’t stand meat anymore. It is like my tummy gets nauseated whenever I am confronted with meat. I am now a vegetarian pretty much. I am thinking to start in March after I research it to become a gluten-free vegan. I will need to get some book on it from the library cause I have no idea what a gluten-free vegan eats. I will still follow WeightWatchers points. Anyone have any recs for info regarding becoming a gluten free vegan?

    I hope you sort the food issues….I don’t eat a lot of meat anymore, as I also find it doesn’t digest easily. Seafood or chicken works pretty well, and the occasional small piece of meat.

    Good luck! Here are

      I hope so also…. I wonder if it is a getting older thing??

    I did not know that about Goodreads rereads. Thanks for sharing that!
