Friday. Friday. Friday!

Book Blogger Hop
Happy Friday.  Happy hopping.

Question of the week:

"Where is your favorite place to read? 
Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?"

My answer:
I pretty much love to read.  So where ever I am, I enjoy it, but if it is nice weather outside I really, really enjoy reading in the hammock in the shade under our Mountain Ash tree.  That is heaven for me.  This time of year, you'll usually find me snuggled up in the overstuffed chair by the gas fireplace.  And I always read in bed before going to sleep, but these days my bed is likely to lull me to sleep before I get too far in the book.  

How about you?

Meme 2:

Friday's Finest is a new meme from A Bookful of Thoughts.


~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn't a spoiler!
~If you'd like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

"The first thing you find out when yer dog learns to talk is that dogs don't got nothing much to say. About anything."  -The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, pg 1.

The story takes place on a planet where all male thoughts can be heard aloud, even male animals.  So begins this marvelous novel, part one of the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness.  I am just a few pages into the third book and I want to put everything aside and just read.  In fact, I think I will!  Happy Friday!


  1. New follower here! I love reading so much I too don't care where I am! I prefer the bed, because I usually don't get time to read until then.

    Great blog! Looking forward to hearing more!

    Stop by my blog if you'd like.

  2. Hopping on by & finally following to return the favour :o) A hammock sounds lovely in the spring/summer weather. Have a great weekend!

  3. By the fire(cooler weather) or on the deck in a chair(nicer weather) I read sometimes on the trampoline. I actually like reading on planes. It takes my mind off the annoyances of travel.

  4. I have to read before bed or I can't go to sleep. ;)
    Hope you come by and see my ANSWER!

  6. Ooh, this book! I still need to read the third one. Ahah, and the quote you chose -- I thought it was funny. A great beginning into the series.

    By the way, do you have an email that I could send you for the code? Where the box has a flowery background? That would be great!

    Thanks for participating!

  7. You are cordially invited to add a link to your book reviews for the week at my Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon. It's a sort of round-up of bloggers' book reviews each week on Saturday:

  8. I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
