Weekly Geeks & BBAW

August 28, 2008

It’s time for another Weekly Geek! This week Dewey has asked that we host a book photo tour. You can take a photo of your personal bookshelves, pictures of your book club or share with everyone your favorite place to read. Since my bookshelves are a bit dusty and my book club isn’t meeting for another month, I figured I would show you one of my favorite places to read. The weather here in the North East has been delightful the last few days, so I’ve been squeezing in some reading time on my back deck. As you can see below, I’m one hundred pages into Keeping the House by Ellen Baker. You can read a synopsis about the book on the author’s website. So far I’ve found it to be a really lovely read.

    Great idea for a photo tour. LOL I really don’t have a favorite place to read, but I read a lot on transit. LOL next time I will have to make someone take my picture reading on the subway!

    I read Keeping the House for LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers program when it first came out in hardcover. I love the artwork on the paperback version! I remember liking the book okay but having some issues with it.

    It looks very peaceful out there! Mine (if I ever get it done) also includes a deck photo, although lately, my deck is plagued by BEES.

    Serena – I think you should ask someone to take a pic of you on the subway, just make sure they don’t jump off the train with your camera!
    Lesley – I’m actually really enjoying Keeping the House – did you review it?
    Dew – sorry about the bees – luckily, it’s be a relatively bug free summer!

    I picked up Keeping the House recently, so I look forward to your review.

    I read outside too on my lawn swing. Of course the swing is ancient, but comfortable so it is still a favorite place of mine. Although the kids will go out there to read or play their DSLite’s on it and then there is no room for me. How did this happen. Anyway we are lucky enough to have this weather all year around so that makes it cool for reading although it would be fun to cozy up in a chair by a light while it is dark and snowing outside, that I kind of miss.

    I read outside also, especially around 7pm when it just starts cooling off.
