Bookish Tuesday and free yoga!

One of my favorite things to do, after running of course, is reading.  I am madly in love with my Nook Color.      However, my favorite kind of books to read are generally paranormal romance (??I have no idea why??) or smut!  I'm not opposed to reading other kind of books, but let's be honest here...I have limited time that I can devote to reading.  I read to relax.  Plus, haven't you ever heard the saying "smut is good for the soul???"    No? Maybe I made that up.  I figured I should take one day of the week to review books or talk about what I'm reading or some such thing.

So, this week I will tell you about a non-smut book I read recently that I LOVED.  

Wild by Cheryl Strayed.  This book really spoke to me.  It was a fabulous read about a woman who hikes the Pacific Crest Trail in an effort to "find herself" after several major life tragedies. I definitely recommend it! I read it and then declared to hubby that I was going to go hike the Pacific Crest Trail too.  Bless his heart he humored me.  :)  I realized my goal was a bit lofty and decided to start working towards being able to do something like that if I wanted to.  I think this book really planted one of the first seeds that pushed me towards running.  Cheryl Strayed has another book out that I have downloaded on my Nook but have not started reading yet (too busy reading smut).  

The second thing I wanted to tell you guys about today is free yoga!!  Steffi over at Almost Healthy Life has started doing yoga videos on her blog!! Her blog is a recent find of mine, but it's one of my absolute favorites!! She makes it all seem not so intimidating!!  So, go check her out and do some yoga!!
