Treadmill Week 64 & What I #amreading

Treadmill Goals:

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals (exception…at the end of the week where a book is highlighted, I will finish it off-treadmill so I can feature something new the next week)

Note: Although I will try to avoid them, my weekly #amreading updates may or may not contain spoilers, so read at your own risk.


What I #amreading: Hound Dog & Bean by B.G. Thomas

My favorite lines this week:

20336285✿✿ SUNDAY ✿✿

“You can sue my little pink pucker,” H.D. replied casually and flopped back onto the grass, his hair forming a crazy halo around his head.

✿✿ MONDAY ✿✿

H.D. turned just in time to see the huge burly man who had caused the big fuss at yesterday’s adoption fair. And the asshole was barreling toward him like a train out of a tunnel.

✿✿ TUESDAY ✿✿

Suddenly, he felt like a teenager. “Thanks, Mara.”

He headed back into the small bathroom, feeling silly and dorky and lighthearted all at the same time.

✿✿ WEDNESDAY ✿✿

Bean gave a slight nod and found himself almost leaning into H.D.’s delicate finger movements. He was being so gentle. Funny that this young man could be all—what had Mara said?—”kung-fu-dancing guy” one minute and so tender with those hands the next.

✿✿ THURSDAY ✿✿

Bean swallowed hard and managed a single nod. “Sorry,” he whispered, and was finally able to look away.

✿✿ FRIDAY ✿✿

H.D. stared at the bedroom ceiling, its surface cracked and water stained. That and the smell of mold told him it must leak, and leak a lot, when it rained.

✿✿ SATURDAY ✿✿

“Okay,” she said. “Hormones. That’s what it is. And it’s spring. Who isn’t horny in the spring?”

  1. I’ve had my eye on this book for a long time, but for some reason I haven’t gotten around to reading it. But every one of those quotes pushed it up to the top of my TBR, so now I gotta go book shopping 🙂
