  3. I'm reading Hounded by Kevin Hearne, an urban fantasy... and it's taking me to Tempe, Arizona with Atticus, fighting giants, dodging treacherous witches, minding polite manners with temperamental gods, and trying to stay alive ...reminds me of Harry Dresden by Jim Butcher :)

  4. Whitney: LOL Right!?

    Debbie: Ooooo fun! Thanks for stopping by!

    Cherry: O sounds like fun. I love Arizona. It's a very cool place with a great feel. I need to try the Dresden books. I've been watching the show on Netflix.

  5. Great quote, and I love the picture too.

    Right now I am reading An Unlikely Suitor, and enjoying my visit to New York City in the late 1800's.

    Maybe you should start a meme, this just might catch on, LOL!

  11. Oh, what a great quote. My reading is taking me on some incredible journeys this weekend. Somehow I've not been able to make up my mind what book I really want to get into, so instead I'm reading FIVE: Forbidden, Die for Me, Artemis Fowl, The Fourth Stall and Two Moon Princess. Of all these great books I think the farthest I'll travel is France! :-)

    Reading has taken me this weekend to Wyoming in Unearthly by Cynthia Hand and to 1500's England and a prep school in Mass for Infinite Days. I've been busy!

  29. I just had a painful 2.5 hour flight without any book! I had just hiked out of the Grand Canyon and was planning to pick something up at the airport to read but ended up without any time! I read the inflight mag cover to cover...and then again.

  30. Fantastic quote, Juju. So very true. This weekend I was visiting a small town named Junction in 13 to Life and another small town named Washokey located in Wyoming in Like Mandarin. I don't know where I'll travel next. Hopefully it's somewhere cool, hehe! =]
