One has videos, almost like being with living, moving people. Maybe these will inspire me to exercise more, even alone in my apartment.

Today, I'll start reading Mildred D. Taylor's All the Days Past, All the Days to Come (2020). Although I've had it for awhile, I wanted to read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (1976) about Cassie Logan and her family before jumping into this one where Cassie is an adult. To learn more about these books, see my Library Loot post.Nonfiction
