Feature and Follow Friday and Giveaway information

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community.

Featured Blog: Guiltless Reader. I love your eclectic list of favorite books!

Here’s this week’s question: Where is the best destination reading spot for you? (Where do you like to go to read other then your home)

Hmmm...I can pretty much read anywhere-at my desk during lunch; in the doctor's office waiting for an exam; on a train, plane, or bus heading toward or from a destination; I also enjoy listening to audiobooks while I'm driving in the car; but my favorite would be sitting in a deck chair at the beach, lake, or Puget Sound.

July is my Blogoversary.  Please help me by participating in my giveaway.  All you have to do is answer the following question in the comment section, follow me, and sign up on rafflecopter.

Today's Question: What is the best biography that you remember reading?

My answer: Schindler's List is a fiction book about an actual man: Oscar Schindler. It was excellent.


  1. Any place that you can hear the relaxing sound of water is paradise for me. Wish we had more places to do that here.

  3. I don't read many biographies, but I remember as a child reading a bunch of short ones about various ballerinas and their lives were fascinating.

  4. Oh, there's a week question too? I like to read on my back deck or in a beautiful vacation locale. (as long as I'm warm enough) I hate to be cold.

  5. I just discovered your blog this summer when I actually have time to track down great reading blogs! What a fortune to find yours... I grew up on Mercer Island a LONG time ago but your photos of Mt. Ranier bring back beautiful memories. It was the view off the deck in our backyard back in the day. Count me in as a new follower!

    As far as biography....hmmm. I literally read every biography our school had back in my elementary school days but I do believe my favorite was about Helen Keller (and Anne Sullivan.) My heroes.

    Thanks for sharing a great blog.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about my blog.

      I don't believe there is anywhere more beautiful on earth than the Puget Sound region during the summer (now the winter, that is a different story.) We all refer to Mt. Rainier as "the mountain" as if it is the only one. Paradise, the National Park on the South side of the mountain, is aptly named.

  6. Hi Anne! Thanks for your kind comments ... your reading spot sounds wonderful! You must have quite the view! I loved the movie Schindler and it always brings me to tears. I remember starting reading this but never finished it.
