1. Registration for Armchair BEA is open! Armchair BEA is an online book conference for those that can't attend Book Expo America (the largest annual book fair in the US) in Chicago. You don't have to be a full time book blogger to sign up (because I'm not, obviously), you just need to enjoy writing about and discussing books with fellow bloggers. It runs from May 11-16, and it's a lot of fun! There's daily blog topics, a daily Instagram challenge, lots of giveaways and of course tons of bookish coverage to keep you filled in on what's happening in Chicago. Join usss :D


2. I watched The Visit last weekend. I feel like all the interesting parts (aside from the "twist" towards the end) were already shown in the trailer >_> 6/10 - was ok but wouldn't recommend.

3. I think I want a Fitbit. Actually, I know I want a Fitbit, but can't decide which one to get. I'm really hoping it'll make me less of a couch potato. Being able to track everything and seeing charts and stats is fun for me, so I think that will be really motivating. Also you can connect with all your friends that have one! I already know a few people that want to be accountability buddies with me! So which one do I want? I don't know :( I'll be buying it with a giftcard, so the more expensive Fitbit Blaze and Surge aren't options. I'm torn between the Flex, Charge (which comes in a burgundy color I really like), and Alta. Ideally I want to get the Alta; it has the slim design of the Flex but still has a screen. At first I didn't think I wanted a screen, but not needing my phone to check all my numbers is really appealing. My phone is so big and doesn't fit in most of my clothes pockets, so carrying it everywhere isn't always convenient. However the Flex (which does not have a screen) is the cheapest, which is always appealing as well. If you have a Fitbit I'd love to hear your opinions!

Sophisticated Cat agrees.

 I'm really happy because today I found out I don't have to go to jury duty anymore (sorry, Ashlee)!

5. Did you know that this week is National Library Week? This year Gene Luen Yang is serving as honorary chair. I was just talking about him last week! Unfortunately my library isn't doing much to celebrate, but this week I've been reading a lot of library books in their honor :P

National Library Week

Bookish (and Not-So Bookish) Thoughts is hosted every Wednesday (even though I'm posting mine super late) on Bookishly Boisterous!
