When The Mr picked me up from work today, I was just getting to the climax of my book, and I did NOT want to put it down, so I was naturally a little cranky about going to the gym. (Side note: I’m enjoying the gym way more than I thought I would, but that’s another blog post for another time.)
Me: Ugh, this is annoying because I want to finish my book, but I also don’t want to be a slacker.
The Mr: Why don’t you just hop on one of those loungy bikes and read while you do that then?
Me: OH MY GOD YOU’RE A GENIUS.
So I did. I hit the “Random workout” button, popped in my headphones so I could listen to the Stranger Things soundtrack while I read, and I stayed there for 45 minutes and finished my book/acquired the strongest legs in the world. It was amazing. In fact, I was just reading the epilogue when The Mr showed up to tell me that he was all done.
Me: THAT WAS INTENSE.
The Mr: The book or the workout?
Me: Both! I’m so sweaty!!
On a related note, you guys should totally pick up a copy of Bonfire by Krysten Ritter (Yes! as in Jessica Jones!) when it comes out in November. It’s a slow burn, but man, oh man, when that spark reaches the gunpowder, THINGS. GO. BOOM.
Another side note: titling this blog post was really hard because “Sweaty Books” sounds disgusting and “Books make me sweat sometimes” also sounded gross and all things involving sweat can just be gross, so… I went with KABOOM because that felt safer.
