BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


It's Tuesday, Where are You? didn't make the short list for voting in BBAW, but some other really great memes were nominated. Don't forget to go vote once this week for all your favorite blogs and events. Other fun stuff coming up next week includes Blogger Interviews, voting results, and lots of give-aways. Suey and I plan to bring back The Bookword Game after BBAW is over, so start planning to participate and keep an eye out for books that need a good description.

I've been doing battle with one of those huge zucchinis - cookies and a chocolate cake that I've made two batches of now it is so popular around here. And that is with just one zucchini, thank heavens I didn't grow any myself and was only forcefully gifted with the one. I still have 2 grated cups left - maybe a loaf, or maybe the cake again. It's really good!

In reading, I'm not sure where I am. I am about to start a journey possibly to Brooklyn, by Colm Toibin which is due back at the library soon, so if I don't start it now, I'll not have the book to read. If it doesn't make the Booker short list (being announced today), I may take it back. My other choice is to go to ancient Egypt and learn about the great Nefertiti, by Michelle Moran. I'm looking forward to reading a great historical fiction.

Where is reading taking you today? Write a post, leave a comment, spread the word.

Good to hear about your zucchini gift. My family has always loved my Zucchini Bread with a sprinkling of chocolate chips on the top.

Can't wait to hear what you think of Brooklyn - I've read some great reviews of it.

I've seen that book about Nefertiti on a lot of blogs. It looks good. Good luck with the zucchinni. I've been making lots of casseroles with mine! Allrecipies.com has some good ones. It sure cuts down the grocery budget--squash, tomatoes, cucumbers and corn. Gotta love summer. I am here

I really want to read the Coibin. I loved The Master.

I'm on Prince Edward Island with a bunch of industrious young adults. (But Anne Shirley is not one of them, not this time.)
