BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


After a 4 day weekend, it is nice to get back into a routine, even if it is a bit difficult to get up in the morning. I've never been a morning person, I'd much rather stay up late watching television or reading a good book.

I just moved back to my farm in Appalachia and am planning on changing my family's eating habits completely. (Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver)
I am also in a fantasy land where I must obey every order given to me, a terrible spell put on me by a mischievous fairy (Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine)

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

Don't forget about the Bookword Game, taking place each week here or at Suey's. We are voting this week at Suey's for last week's word, and look for the result and a new definition tomorrow at Suey's . The more that play the better, and we need lots and lots of suggestions. Don't be shy, come by and stretch your brain.

  1. Seems like you are in the right place. Eating right is good and being in a fanatasy land is better!

    Tuesdays are for visiting new places

  5. Sounds like a good journey for you! I've been in Louisiana, but my journey hasn't been so pleasant!

    Happy "travels" everybody, and enjoy your week...

  7. Wow, I'd honestly not thought of reading Ella Enchanted before, but your little description there, I am totally sold! To the library list that one goes immediately!

  9. Sounds like your place is a good one. I'm in New England and it's 1991 but sometimes I go back in time to the era of the Salem witch trials.

  10. No big trips for me. I'm in Nova Scotia, as always, but I'm learning a lot about the history of coal mining: Coal Black Heart.

  11. My Paris experience this week is entirely different from Laura's...

  12. I'm in Zinnia, Mississippi. I've sort of accidentally become a private investigator and my second 'official' case is looking into the death of a famous local author. At the same time the ghost of my great great grandmother's nanny (who haunts my ancestral home) is determined to get me married off. It can be complicated being me.

  14. I love Ella of Frell! I recently read a companion fairy tale by the same author: "Fairest"--I believe it's a take of of Snow White

    I am here

  15. I'm definately lacking routine at the mo, on a two Easter break from school - but had to go in to teach a revsion class this morning, a 6.30 wake only for no kids to arrive as they all went to advanced maths instead - still I'm getting paid extra.

    Onto the books. My main read is set in 1950's Yorkshire, England - many family disputes are happening and no one seems happy (The Virgin in the Garden - A.S Byatt)

    I'm also in a political hostage seige, only the politician isn't here as he stayed home to watch a soap opera. This is set in an unnamed Latin American country (Bel Canto)

  16. Oooh! Enjoy "Animal, Vegetable,Miracle." It's an excellent book. Kingslover not only changed her family's eating habits, she changed mine. =D

  19. I have barely moved since last week - something that is almost unheard of! I am still stuck in the ice in the Arctic, and I am also still travelling through China.

  20. I'd rather be on that farm in Appalachia, I think. I'm on the tough and gritty streets of L.A. in this book.

  21. I'm running around all over history - in Europe and America, collecting books like mad.
