BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, where are you?

Only 9 more sleeps! The little people are getting excited here. We went to a Christmas Brunch at the local hotel yesterday, with a great Santa, and tons of amazing food. It has turned into an annual tradition for us to get dressed up and take my parents and the children to the all you can eat buffet. The girls, 5 and 8, ate like birds - waffle, piece of watermelon, four Jellos, and a Pogo, but the 11 year old boy is understanding the concept of all-you-can-eat and he ate his fair share. I never ate another thing after we got home until breakfast the next day.
Reading wise, I am in Kenya, travelling with the camel bookmobile and getting to know the people of Mididima, one of the stops on the route. (The Camel Bookmobile, Masha Hamilton)
Where is reading taking you today?


  1. I am in Derry, Maine. My friends and I have come back to try and figure out what is going on in the town...again. (It by Stephen King).

    I am also living in the wilds of Russia, having escaped from a Communist work camp during the 1930s. (Under a Blood Red Sky by Kate Furnivall)

  2. I'm hitting the Oregon Trail with Francis Parkman and his cousin.

  3. I'm in upstate NY, looking for some "dirt"...my post is here; thanks so much for hosting this meme...I look forward to it every week!

    Happy Reading, everybody!

  4. That books sounds good me. I would like to be in Kenya.

    Mine is up!

  5. The title alone is intriguing. Makes you want to see a Camel Bookmobile!

    My post is here: http://booksandneedlepoint.blogspot.com/2008/12/where-are-you_16.html

  6. I've just arrived in Scotland. My boss at Scotland Yard called me at my family home in Cornwall and informed me that I had to come here to investigate a murder. Apparently since I'm an earl as well as a Detective Inspector he thinks it will help in investigating a murder that may involve members of the aristocracy.

    Payment in Blood by Elizabeth George.

  7. I'm riding horses through New Mexico, and have a strange young man with me and my friend who seems to have tagged along for the journey (All the Pretty Horses)

  8. I loved The Camel Bookmobile!

    I'm tramping through Dartmoor, England: http://booksandmovies.today.com/2008/12/16/tuesday-tuesdays-its-tuesday-where-are-you-december-16-2008/

  9. I am 26 years old and have moved back to my family home in Jackson, Mississippi. It's 1966, during the Civil Rights era, and I am working with a theater group that has begun to cast black people in plays. I've studied creative writing under Eudora Welty and am tranforming from a bored house wife into a playwright. (Ellen Gilchrist, The Writing Life)

  10. I did this for the first time today!

  11. marg - ooh, leave the lights on for It!

    beth - welcome, I love going to Ireland and was there in Heart and Soul last week.

    bybee - enjoy your hike

    mo - I'm glad you enjoy it and come by to play.

  12. guatami - The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penny is a book I'd like to read. I didn't realize it was a murder mystery. Sounds really good.

    kristi - Costa Rica sounds beautiful

    suziq - is this your first Lynley mystery? I love that series, but they are so huge! I have one here to read but now there are 2 more published. They take me a long time to read, but are so good.

    katrina - I'd like to read that one too! I get reminded of so many books here that I want to read.

  13. carrie - I like the idea of Holmes better than actually reading him, so that one sounds interesting.

    reallymagicalbooks - oh, Mississippi. I was there in Mudbound this year. Not an easy time.

    tink - welcome, come and play more often!

  14. I'm staying home for Christmas. (Yellowknife, by Steve Zipp)

  15. I am deep inside my own new novel, set in Nunavut and spanning most of the twentieth century. Hope it will be on one of your Canadiana lists one day soon. the novel is called Rankin Inlet. It is finally gone to press, so I am now building the website etc. More at www.gabypress.com


  16. This is the second Lynley mystery. I finally got around to reading the first earlier this year and I'm hooked.

  17. I'm in California with Dean Koontz latest book Your Heart Belongs to Me. Weird things are going on and I'm trying to figure it out.

  18. john - I'll be interested to hear your take on it, living there and all. Are there really tunnels? Which character are you most like? :)
    A book unlike I've read before, but not in a bad way.

    honeybee - good luck. I think you are the first one to be in your own novel, sounds cool. What are the odds two people in a row would be in Canada's north?

    suziq - what a great series you have ahead of you. Wait until Havers gets a bigger role. I am always surprised by how many words I don't recognize when I read George's books. I thought I had a good vocab.

    booklogged - I will have to read a Koontz book someday. Merry Christmas to you and Candleman and your family!

  19. I've only just started my book.. but I'm in New York! (I think) I'm reading Oracle Night by Paul Auster

  20. Yea! I KNEW somebody was hosting this idea. It's fun!
