BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


We are still recovering here from the weekend, a family reunion/golf tournament that has been happening for 37 years. Golfing, partying - there were some milestone birthdays to celebrate on Saturday night, eating, and trying to find some shade on Sunday. New this year were some potato sack races and adult-child relay races on Sunday. The potato sack races were supposed to be for the kids - the 15 great-grandkids, but with crew of adults who don't believe they have aged at all, there was a race for the grownups too. Luckily, no broken hips ensued.

Reading wise, I am still with The Gargoyle, but I'm not reading slowly for lack of interest. I've been in ancient Iceland, medieval Germany, Japan, Iceland and Italy. I think I am also taking a detour through Hell. I am savoring the experience, with love stories and an engrossing time in the middle ages. I am at a loss how to describe this book, but I won't soon forget it. (The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson)

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

I just (5 mins ago) finished up my read, I was on a beach off the coast of South Carolina having a mid life crisis (The Mermaid Chair).

I'm also in Sri Lanka starting up a tea farm (Green Tea and Tuk Tuks).
Think I'll be back in (a form of)England later with a book detective solving literary crimes ad mysteries (The Lost Book)

I can't wait to see what you think of The Gargoyle. I put it on my TBR list after reading about it in another book blog, and then took it off again because I read a really negative review. (I'm so wishy-washy.) Sounds like you're going to break the tie in favor of! :)

I'm always so jealous of where everyone else is. I'm not anywhere that exciting: L.A. again. Oh, well, maybe next week, I'll be somewhere as thrilling as all of you. :)
