Day 685: Reading on the Run

I don't know if I've mentioned to you that I really love to read.  But I do.  The only problem is that I don't have much time for reading any more.  So now, I have my books read to me by my cute little ipod.

This morning I listened to the first part of Unbroken.  It's about a guy in WWII who survives some really bad stuff.  I don't really know because I just started it.  But at the beginning it tells about his rise to Olympic glory.  And I listened to it while I was running on the treadmill.

I hate running on the treadmill.  So boring.

But running while listening to some amazing feats of running wizardry makes running on the treadmill so much more bearable.  In fact, it was so fun, it was today's Joyful Moment.

But now he's lost at sea in enemy territory, so I'm not sure there will be any more Joyful Moments coming from it.  Still really enjoying it, though.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that turn out to be a lot more fun than expected!

I totally do the same thing! At our library we have these awesome books already downloaded on to "playaways". I've loved using them, so I don't have to download books onto my iTunes/computer.

It totally makes running much more fun.

Yes! I've tried a few of those playaways as well. They are so convenient. And I enjoy listening to the different accents and such from the reader.

My JM was our Family Home Evening. We read some articles in the Dec Ensign about Christmas and got some new insights on the birth of our Savior. And for our activity we made pasta angels in preparation for the Activity Day activity on Wed. Dad made it a lot of fun.
