  1. THANK you for this list! I’ll be following along. I love that your “Other” list includes Harry Potter.

    I have a recommendation!
    Give Swimming to Antarctica: Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmer (by Lynne Cox) a read. It’s insanely inspirational. This woman is SO motivated. I think a lot about that book and her trials when I’m struggling, especially during a blegh run.
