BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?

What a wonderful long weekend we had here in Canada. Thanksgiving dinner with both sides of the family, lots of great meals and wine and wonderful weather. I even got some decluttering done around here on Monday - getting summer things put away is so satisfying.

The Bookword Game at Suey's doesn't have many suggestions yet. Is there another name for What do we call a book that makes you read chapter after chapter long after you decided to quit for the night.? Leave a comment at her blog soon if you can think of something.

In reading, I am still in high school with Blue van Meer. She and her clique of friends are about to deal with some trauma. I am not half way yet (it's over 500 pages) so I am still getting the story set up. Someone just drowned at the party the kids crashed. (Special Topics in Calamity Physics, by Marisha Pessl)
I am also in the New Testament, reading ever so slowly the lost gospel by Biff, JC's best friend. Lamb by Christopher Moore.

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


  1. Sounds dramatic where you are!

    Here's mine!

  2. Some days I'd like to still be in high school. Well, maybe for only 5 minutes. I'm reading letters and emails from two friends.

    You can find me here.

  3. I just graduated from high school and now I'm working as a receptionist in a bank in England.

    Here's mine:

  4. Is that second one a fictional work based on the New Testament?

    I'm in Aliceville North Carolina. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

  5. In Vienna in the early 1800's, watching as a prodigy meets Beethoven: http://www.newcenturyreading.com/2009/10/its-tuesday-1.html

    How do you create the link within the comment?? I tried last week, but couldn't make it work.

  6. Well that's quite a contrast. I'm in Prague, in the old town. More details here.

  7. I've always been curious about Christopher Moore's book - it sounds interesting.

    Here's mine:


    Thanks again for hosting!

  8. Hi!
    Mine is posted at my place, Just Books. Have a great day!


    P.S. Just click on my name and you will go to my blog, Just Books.

  9. I just discovered this meme. It is a great idea. Mind if I join in? I am in Manhattan with a crazy rock critic. Here is my blog post: http://thereadingjourney.blogspot.com/2009/10/its-tuesday-where-are-you.html

    I would also love to know how to put a link in the comments section.

  10. I'm at Hogwarts!


  11. Sometimes I can manage to get my comment to be embedded, but I need to use a cheat sheet that I keep near the computer.

    {a href="putthehttp://linkin here"}what you want to say{/a}

    Just like that, except, use the <> brackets instead of the curley ones{} Keep all the spaces and nonspaces the same. Hope this helps some of you! If you want to attempt it here, try the link again. You should see what you want to see if you preview your comment.

    For those wondering, Lamb is a comedic look at the bible and Jesus, so some people may be offended, depending on your sense of humour.

  12. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving.

    I'm currently going back and forth from the US to the Dominican (The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)

  13. I'm looking forward to your review of Special Topics in Calamity Physics. I've had my eye on that one for awhile.

    I'm in Three Pines, enjoying the food at the Bistro. :-)
