BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


The Orbis Terrarum challenge has begun, and I've been travelling around the world already: Cuba, a quick detour to Tennessee, and now Columbia. The Challenge site is a great spot to find books from around the world, based on author's nationality. It's fun to try and fill in a world map with books from other countries. It's like a list!

I am visiting Columbia and learning about the love and life of two very different people, Love in the Time of Cholera. I wish I knew the name already for a book that reminds you of another book because this book reminds me of Les Miserables, and that might not be a compliment, (I never finished Les Mis.) It's the tangents and details of characters that appear for a millisecond that causes me to compare them. Any suggestions? Suey should have a voting post up tomorrow so get your ideas in today.

Where is reading taking you today? Leave a comment, make a post, spread the word.

  1. Wow...I'm *never* this close to the top....where is everybody this wonderful Tuesday?? (I'm getting to know myself better - at least, that's the idea!)

    Have a great week everybody; May it be filled with Wonderful Books! (Maybe yours will pick up, Raidergirl!...the book, not the week; I assume your week is going just fine!)

  4. Fun travels! I haven't really begun my Orbis Terrarum reading yet for this year. I've still been all over the place lately though - London, Dusseldorf, Washington State, Tokyo.
    My post is up here.

  5. I'm in England between after World War I. I'm an investigator currently working on a couple of different cases. Both involve finding out what really happened to men who died in France during the war. It's bringing up some uncomfortable memories for me of my time serving as a nurse there during the war. I'm also trying to help a young girl who has been accused of a murder I don't think she committed.

  9. I've already completed a couple of books for Orbis, and Love in the time of Cholera is noex on that list.

  10. I am in LA. A young starlet has just been murdered and I am the prime suspect. What I don't know is that there are paranormal forces at play and that I have just wound up in the middle of something that could end up killing me as well.

  17. I'm in London (where I'm headed in real life-- as you're probably sick of my saying by now-- this Sunday). Let's hope I'm not pursued by the same Martians as in H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds which I'm currently reading.
