BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?

Three great challenges start this month - Orange July, 3rd Canadian Book Challenge, and Book Awards III. I just need to find an award winning book, written by Canadian woman, that is on the Orange Prize list. It's surprisingly easy to find Canadian women on that list. I'm going with the author and book which won the New Writers award in 2007. Too bad I'm not signed up for the Chunkster Challenge as well.

I am in a solitary cage, a political prisoner in Myanmar, formerly Burma. (The Lizard Cage by Karen Connolly)

I am writing letters to my sister in New York from our home in Ontario, during the Depression. (Clara Callen, Richard B Wright, a Giller Prize Winner)

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


  1. I'm in 18th-century England, sorting out societal issues, love woes, and battling the undead. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

  2. I'm in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950's. See my complete post at You're quiet, introspective, and a great thinker.
    You need a summer vacation that gets you away from the crowds and the heat.
    So retreat to the mountains, where you can clear your head..

  3. I'm having an affair in Hong Kong!! Wow, aren't books great? (The Painted Veil)

  4. I read The Lizard Cage a couple of summers ago and thought it was an amazing book.

    I'm in New Zealand.

  5. I'm in 18th century England and I've just bid good bye to Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley and the others at Netherfield Park. I've returned home and Mrs. Bennet is very cross that I didn't stay longer there.

    Pride and Prejudice of course.

  6. Oooh, I've been wanting to read The Lizard Cage...hope you're enjoying it!

    I'm on an island, finding that my whole family/village has been wiped out. (Nation)

    I'm also on Easter Island learning how that civilization disappeared. (Collapse)

    Sheesh...I think I need to find a mainland somewhere...

  7. I spent last week in Montreal, and now I'm headed to New York.

    Where am I?

  8. Oh and I meant to ask how you're liking Clara Callan. I really loved it when I read it a few years ago.

  9. Hi!
    I'm about to have my first child. Mine is posted at my place, Just Books. Have a great day!


  10. I'm on the island of Nantucket, you can read my post

  11. I'm in Maine. My mother has sent me to my grandmother, hoping a change of scenery will get me out of my depression.

  12. I'm back! Today I'm at a monastery in Tibet. I'm on a 7,000 mile trip to follow the Silk Road (Shadow of the Silk Road by Colin Thubron).

  13. I@ve left Engalnd and now I'm in a restaurant in New York. More details here. I hope you're enjoying The Lizard Cage - I've heard a lot of good reports.

  14. I'm a little behind and am nowhere nearly as exotic as most of the other commenters so far. I'm only in New York and L.A., which seems to pale by comparison to New Zealand, Greece and Tibet to name just a few.

  15. I am on a small island in Greece getting ready to direct amateur thespians in The Tempest. We just got here and it opens in six weeks. (Cafe Tempest: Adventures on a Small Greek Island by Barbara Bonfigli)
