So, recently I received a copy of the book Sky1-Foundation written by William Ammerman. This is a futuristic type of story about a group of people who find out the government is not lifting quarantines inside their walled world. The main character, Nick, finds out some sketchy things are going on and rushes to attempt to get his wife, child, and a few others to immigrate to another level for safety.
The city this book is based in walled itself off from the rest of the world. Inside this wall are different levels, these levels represent different castes of people. You have many levels, from one to 137 or more. The people in the lower levels are impoverished and less educated. They are also subject to abuse from those in authority. There is some opportunity for "leveling up", I guess. The book it's stated a couple times that people usually only go up 1-2 levels in their life time. Though at least one person went up from level 55 to 130-something due to his intelligence and probably underhandedness. In short, he's not really a good guy.
The first few chapters were okay, then I got a bit lost when the author jumped between characters to show the events that were all happening at the same time. However it fairly quickly comes back together as the main characters are rushing to try and secure documentation to get out of the level they are in. This level is being quarantined and conditions are quickly deteriorating.
Just when they thought they made it to safety, things change. You're left with a nice cliff-hanger that encourages you to get the second book in the series. In short, not my usual type of book, but a fairly interesting read. The ending was great, made me want to get the second book in the series.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Today ended up being another rest day. It was my baby's 13th birthday so I tried to make the day about him. It also rained and stormed again making doing anything outside difficult.
Juneathon Day 8
Today I went for a walk, dragging my oldest son along this time. He talked about a favorite game the whole time and I just smiled and nodded. He's getting ready for his Senior year in high school so I'm just enjoying every minute I can now.
Anyway, it was a cool 75 degrees outside, with a nice breeze and the humidity felt like it was a bit lower for once. Went a bit slower than I intended, but I did something. I'm also going to go through my challenge exercises and be done for the day.
Have a good evening dear readers.

Tomorrow is another day, and I will probably do a few squats here in a bit. I just think I needed a lazy day.

However I did do 70 squats, 8 burpees, 2 x 20s planks, 8 chair dips. I'm trying to stay active and keep going on this Juneathon challenge. Some days my motivation is really low and working out is the last thing I want to do. I figure, though, if I do a little bit maybe I'll want to do a little bit more.
5 days in, almost a week. If I make it past a week, I'll be doing better than I do on most challenges. How sad is that? Anyway, I'm off to finish up my day.
Have a great evening dear readers.

Today I really didn't feel like doing much. I did do a little more than a half mile walk with the dog in tow and completed today's challenge exercises. So, better than nothing I suppose.
I hope all my dear readers out there accomplished more, tomorrow I've nowhere to be so maybe I'll do a longer distance.

I'll post later today after I complete today's run/walk and workouts. Have a great day dear readers.
