BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, where are you?

It's a sad day around the book blogging world as we come to grips with the sudden passing of Dewey. Everyone has their own special memory; for me, it will be my introduction to graphic novels that I will associate with her. Rest in peace.
In reading, I am in Florida, quite a while ago, following Janie as she looks for love in a post-Civil war era. (Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston)
Where is reading taking you today? Have you met some neat people? Are you in a situation you would never get to experience without books? Share in the comments, and/or post to your own blog as well.


  1. I've answered on my blog this morning; I'm just starting on my 'journey' (only 30 pages in), but I always have a good trip when I go with Ms. McCrumb, so I'm looking forward to it!

    Happy Reading!

  2. Avery, Vermont, the book is Testimony!

  3. I'm in Hong Kong in 1995. I've read just the prologue and the first chapter, so I've only met a couple of the characters in a story of Hong Kong in the period leading up to the handover to China in 1997.

    The Unwalled City by Xu Xi

  4. I'm in 1764 Boston, posing as a male apprentice to a portrait painter from Edinburgh, hoping he doesn't find out I'm a girl.

    I'm also in modern Dublin, working as a freelance journalist.

    Here's my link:


  5. I'm in England - just left a private school - my post is here: http://booksandneedlepoint.blogspot.com/2008/12/where-are-you.html

  6. I've been in 19th c. rural England where I attended a lovely ball. Now it's back to the brothel in China.

    Here's mine.

  7. I've been reading about one man's crazy menagerie in Enslaved by Ducks by Bob Tarte, this morning. In fact, I'm not dressed. Better go put change clothes.

  8. I am in Ancient Rome, playing messenger boy for the current Emperor, and I hate it! (Shadows in Bronze by Lindsey Davis)

    I am also in Edinburgh contemplating the deep and meaningful questions in life! (A Comfort in Saturdays by Alexander McCall Smith)

  9. I posted my answer here http://confuzzledbooks.blogspot.com/2008/12/where-are-you-today.html

  10. In Buenos Aires, which is neat because, as you know, I've actually been there!

  11. mo - it's such a good feeling to pick up a book when you have such confidnece in the writer. Enjoy1

    alea - another one Ihaven't read yet. I'll be looking for your review to see what you thought.

    suzi - you finally left Ireland! I hope it's a good read.

    carrie - i love those books where women have to pretend to be a man to do what they want. I loved Pope Joan.

    kristi - that is all the description I'd need to want to read a book. It reminds me of Enid Blyton and the books of my youth.

  12. tanabata - I haven't heard of that Jane Austen story, The Watsons. Intriguing.

    bookfool - I love days where I don't get dressed. I hope you stayed in PJs for the day.

    marg - I like the McCall Smith books too, very restive to read

    shannon - wow, you are in lots of places at once right now

    3m - I saw your pictures earlier, just lovely. I imagine it brings back some great memories.

  13. I just returned from growing up in Mooreland, Indiana (A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel). Now I'm on my way to Japan yet again (Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami).

  14. New York City - Ginger, the daughter of a stripper, is struggling through culinary school there in The Art of Undressing. And the so-far-unnamed narrator of Breakfast at Bloomingdale's has just gotten on a bus on her way to the big city to become a fashion designer.

  15. South Africa, 1976 during apartheid

    Ruby Red by Linzi Glass

  16. I am in Boston, USA in my Tess Gerritsen medical thriller called Life Support and I am also in my very own neighborhood in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the Danish thriller "Aldrig mere fri" (translates to "Never free again") is taking place.

  17. terri - I loved Zippy. I have the sequel to read but haven't got to it yet.

    tinyll - Wouldn't it be fun to go to New York? I enjoy books set in NY.

    michelle - is that a new book? Sounds interesting

    bogsider - I must try a Gerritson, I hear such good things about her books. I love suspense books.
