BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, where are you?




Yikes! I almost forgot about this! Back to school has changed my computer habits and reading habits and sleeping and, well, you get the picture. We had the remains of one of those hurricanes blow by us and we got a dump of rain. Lots of basements and streets flooded. It's the first time I can remember we've had roads washed out here. Crazy weather for sure. I hope everyone along the eastern seaboard survived the weather events this last week and stayed relatively dry.

Reading wise, I am visiting with some mates in a pub in London and we are about to deliver our friend's ashes as per his last wishes. It's Last Orders often at our favorite pub in Graham Swift's Booker winning novel.

Where is reading taking you this week?

This is a fun idea.
I am somewhere in Western Australia, I have not found out exactly where yet. I believe surfing is going to be involved at some point.

Africa (Nigeria--Half of a Yellow Sun). Although I just got there. Previously I was in Italy, India, and Indonesia learning to Eat, Pray, and Love.

I am STILL in London with Pip (Great expectations). I am listening to it, so I don;t get to move forward in the story very much.

I am also in Outback Australia. I have just gone back after a long absence (Diamond Dove by Adrian Hyland).

Finally, I am in Rome trying to infiltrate the vampires (Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason)

My dogs were wrestling in the living room and knocked Last Orders off the shelf, reminding me that I haven't read it, and should soon! I'm in Guernsey with the letter writers, and on audio - inside the head of Daniel Tammet an autistic savant who has written, Born on a Blue Day.

Hope the rain didn't cause you any damage.

I'm in England, having given up trying to eat the pigeons in Trafalgar Square, I'm searching for dogs (I'm a cat) to help me rescue my unloving family (Varjak Paw)

I don't seem to be anywhere happy this week...on a disturbingly creepy island in The Island of Dr. Moreau, in a ballroom full of witches in The Witches, and in a hospital room in the short story "The Blue Lenses". May next week find somewhere a bit more pleasant.

Stephanie said...

Hmmmm....I'm going back and forth between London, fighting Vampires (When Twilight Burns) and heading towards North Umbrage in New England with The Good Thief!

I really need to get more organized and remember to do this on the right day. :) My only excuse this week is I'm stuck in the middle of the Pacific Ocean waiting for some seriously bad weather to hit (Tsunami by Gordon Gumpertz)and having a hard time putting the dang book down!
