It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile!
I have not shared what I am reading (at least on this weekly meme) since April--I better get back with it.
I read this book yesterday:
in the car, and I drank that good coffee! (which I only get when I'm on vacation)
and I ate this candy bar.....which is a great memory from my childhood...
but in reality? eh--it was only okay.
It's a regional thing I'm sure, manufactured by the Owyhee Candy Company? Chocolate marshmallow inside covered with chocolate and coconut, shaped like a potato.
So, during my 8 hour car ride home, I read a book, drank good coffee and felt nostalgic about a candy bar.
It was a great 8 hours!
Next up on the TBR list?
That's what's up for me this week in books.
What about you?
Before I go, I wanted to share with you where we ate lunch yesterday...
The Geiser Grand Hotel in Baker City, Oregon.
The Geiser Grand Hotel is a historic hotel in Baker City, Oregon, that opened in 1889. It received a restoration and reopened in 1993 after closing in 1968. Decorations include mahogany columns up to a high ceiling, Victorian-style chandeliers, and a stained glass ceiling. It was known as "the Queen of the Mines" during Gold Rush times and described as being the finest hotel between Portland, Oregon and Salt Lake City with the third elevator built west of the Mississippi River
It is so beautiful! I love old buildings and architecture.
The formal dining room --- we didn't eat there of course, we ate in the diner and grill part of the hotel--but I did purchase a book mark which had a photo of the Gentlemen's Dinner in this dining room.
The ceiling in the dining room!
And what you see when you come in...
We ate here and it was very good, but I would love to eat in the dining room some day.
These two below are not my photos, but I didn't get a good one of inside the little cafe. We sat right there by the door and had a wonderful breakfast.
And the outside without the sun shining into my eyes.
Stop your cars, get off the freeways, check out The small towns of the west!
That's what I have to say.
OH...and read books!
