It's Tuesday, Where are You?

Every Tuesday, raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading asks, "Where is reading taking you today?" I love this question! Reading does indeed take you "places" and it is interesting to see where people are in their reading journeys.

Today I'm not sure where I am yet! Last night I finished Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination, so I was bouncing around between London, Miami, Los Angeles, Honduras, back to London, Port Sudan, back to Los Angeles, and finally on to Maui. Whew! I have just read a few pages into Salman Rushdie's The Enchantress of Florence and I'm not sure where it is that I am supposed to be (not Florence yet), so I'll just say that I am wallowing in a field of beautiful words.

Where are you today?


  1. I love this question, too!

    I'm in 3 places:
    The Nile (Down the Nile)
    Lake Eden, Minnesota (The Strawberry Shortcake Murder)
    Charles Valley, Georgia (The Three Miss Margarets)

    What did you think of Olivia Joules? Being an enormous Bridget Jones fan, I was so excited when Helen Fielding had a new book, but was very disappointed with it.

  2. tll: I thought Olivia Joules would make a good beach read -- light, fluffy, entertaining. I thought of it as James Bond meets Nancy Drew and that helped me get past the silliness. It was nowhere near as good as Bridget Jones. If someone really likes the chick lit genre, then they will probably enjoy this more than I did. So ... not a total waste but I won't go recommending it.

  3. A field of beautiful words :) I really want to read that book!
