BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, where are you?



The last 'where are you' in 2008. I hope everyone is ending off with a fantabulous book and looking forward to another year of reading together. I've gotten so many great ideas of books to read as I hang out with a bunch of great readers who read the most interesting books. Thanks to everyone who played along this year; I've enjoyed meeting so many new people and reading all the new blogs. If you've been lurking, why not play along today?

I am in Maine and my dead husband, a famous writer, appears to be haunting me. Bool! (Lisey's Story, Stephen King) Where is reading taking you today? Leave a note in the comments, and feel free to post on your own blog.

I'm in England - same as last week but a different time period. Here's mine.

Happy New Year!

I'm in dystopian America trying to find OUR brother and boyfriend. I'm sharing a body with its previous owner.

I'm in NYC learning how to cook and blog about it. (Thanks for this idea by the way!)

Beth F said...

Mine's up here.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2009 takes you to some great bookish places.

The Bumbles said...

I am ending up on a high note I think - although I wouldn't have expected Wisconsin to be the place to make me such a happy reader!

Stephanie said...

Right now, I'm in the West African nation of Luandia, with the Asari tribe. Fighting genocide for the sake of oil in Richard North Patterson's new book, Eclipse!

laura - Happy New Year to you too. I like English stories.

gautami - thanks for playing along, I haven't read any Shreve yet.

katrina - weird! I still haven't read any Meyers.
Happy New Year to you too!

bkclubcare - you're welcome and thanks for playing. What book is that you are reading? I like cooking and blogging.

raidergirl3 said...

beth - Graphic Nancy Drew is pretty neat, I was more of a Bobbsey Twins fan myself.

bumbles - This latest Oprah pick seems to be a really good read.

stephanie - sadly, that sounds like a nonfiction book - genocide for oil. Thanks for playing today.

It's been fun playing along this year. This week I'm mostly growing up in the suburbs of Detroit and slowly becoming alienated from my pious parents' Catholic faith (The Longest Trip Home/John Grogan), but every once and a while I take a break from Michigan to hang out with those crazy characters from Brooklyn (In the Country of Brooklyn).

I am STILL in Derry Maine! (It by Stephen King).

I am also in Rome, having just been chosen as leader of the Venators, and that means killing lots of vampires (Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason)

This is my first Tuesday post, I'm in between Budapest, Hungary and Montreal, Candada. Check out my post HERE.

I left Stony Mill, Indiana last night after visiting my friend Maggie as she solved a murder mystery and got to meet a few ghosts. Oh, she also got a new cat while I was there and she's the cutest!

I hope to do this on Tuesdays in 2009. Today I am in San Francisco with Mary Russell as she tries to untangle the secrets of her past in Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King.

bookinhand said...

I'm still climbing Mt Everest with Jon Krakauer (Into Thin Air). Today we reached the summit, but a storm is coming fast and making everyone a bit uneasy. Diane

raidergirl3 said...

claire - I loved Angela's Ashes, but not a very cheery read to ring in the new year.

megan - two good looking books. Happy new year!

carrie - a sister book sounds great.

marg - It is a super long book! I'm not surprised you are still there. Plus, the scary! I got the latest Gleason for Christmas, I can't wait to dive in.

bkbookclub - yeah, you have to write the html code to do the link, I keep a cheat-sheet by the computer for when I have to do it

raidergirl3 said...

Red lady-Bonnie - welcome and thanks for joining in. My son read a Hungary revolution book in school this year, he really enjoyed it.

tink - wow, Maggie sounds like a busy lady!

nan - I hope you play next year as well.

diane - everyone should feel very uncomfortable, that was a good book, but not a happy ending. All I could think as I read that was - Why would anyone want to climb a mountain?

Bybee said...

I'm in Antarctica, freezing myself with Sir Ernest Shackleton and the brave members of the Endurance expedition. Endurance, indeed! These were strong men...nearly supernatural in their ability to withstand cruel hardship.

raidergirl3 said...

bybee - brrrrr! Endurance, schmurance. That's just crazy,(says me who lives in Canada in the cold, expecting a blizzard to start the new year. How's that for an omen?)

Florinda said...

I'm new - and late - to this. Hello, and here's where I was on Tuesday (and still am, BTW).
