Where is your most often used (favorite) reading spot? Do you have more than one? What makes your favorite spot just that?
Share pictures if you have them!
My favorite place to read? Well, the place I read most of the time is here:
In a chair in my living room.... It's comfy, I have a table with books, pictures of some of my grandchildren, a plant, and still enough room to sit my coffee cup in the morning. And a blanket/afghan if I get cold. I sit facing my big window in the living room and if I read everything on the table, I have more books in the basket by the chair and on the floor below.
If truth be told tho, my FAVORITE place to read is on the patio swing. It's just that our weather has been so bad lately, I haven't gotten a chance to just lay out there and read. I look forward to doing that. I like to read and listen to the birds and see the flowers.
OH...speaking of birds...we have a hummingbird back at our hummingbird nest. (see here for last years hummingbird pics/story)
I don't know if hummingbirds reuse their nests or this is a new one.
Either way, this is a more aggressive hummingbird. My adult son, says it's like a giant mosquito coming after you every time you go out onto the patio.
We ate dinner out there last night. She better get used to us quick. I plan to sit/lay on the patio swing and do some serious reading this weekend.
It's Monday What are you Reading is another weekly meme hosted by Sheila at "One Persons Journey Through a World of Books"
What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I just finished "House Rules" by Jodi Picoult (this morning sitting in that same chair by the way). My daughter-in-law, Sadie got me a signed copy when she went to a book reading/signing by Picoult.
I liked it very much, and I really didn't "clue in" on the ending. Picoult always has a twist at the end. My DIL told me that the twists are controversial for a lot of people....they don't like to be taken by surprise. I know there is a twist, but I can never figure it out. I believe that is my subconscious saving myself from knowing the ending in advance and not that I am too dim-witted to figure it out. ~grins~
Well, I just finished "House Rules" this morning and then I started "The Irresistible Henry House" by Lisa Grunwald. Henry House is a "practice baby", on loan from an orphanage to a College Home Economics program in the late 1940's. The class of women learned to care of infants and toddlers, then around the age of 2, the orphan was given back to the orphanage and a new infant was brought to the practice house.
I just started it, but I'm loving it.
The weird thing is, that I guess programs such as this did exist in the 40's and 50's.
It'll be interesting to see where the story goes.
