Weekly Book Haul.....March 13, 2016

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea, Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's ReviewsThe Sunday Salon is a new facebook group I've joined and Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia to be Continued.

I went hiking with a friend yesterday in Cave Creek National Park, and a wrong turn meant that we hiked for 5 miles instead of the planned 3, and my Fitbit showed us climbing 48 floors, although my butt and thighs would have sworn it was 50.

But the view from the top was beautiful.  And coming down off a mountain is a lot easier than going up one - in that way, it's like childbirth - you don't remember how horrible it was at the end.

I have had a great week - I finished You by Caroline Kepnes and it was as good as people are saying. I'm going to post my review tomorrow, so I won't go into too much detail except to say it was a definite must read for me.

I didn't add any new books to my TBR pile - it's already overflowing and stressing me out!  I really need to start using audiobooks, but I feel like they are so expensive.  And while I'm listening, I tend to get distracted and miss parts.  But I haven't been sitting still long enough to read as much as I would like. goal for this week is to plug my phone in at 7pm and ignore it until I go to bed.  I'm tired of giving hours to my work email, Facebook, google searches of useless information, such as "Is Brandon Flowers a practicing Mormon? How many ounces in a pound? What is the temperature in Fiji right now?".  I need to cut the cord on my phone.

So any tips on making audiobooks my friend or how you quit being psychologically dependent on your phone are welcome!!!
