Q:   Is reading a fixed part of your morning or evening routine?
A: I don't have a routine but I do read every day. I set aside a few minutes here and there just to read.

  1. I've been meaning to read this book or something by Nic Stone. I hope it is good. My quotes form Radium Girls

  2. I've been trying to get my hands on this book!

  3. That looks like a great book. I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Freda! I've seen Dear Martin doing the rounds, but I haven't read it yet and don't know if it's quite my style. But it sure does appear to be thought provoking.

    Have a good weekend!

  5. Oooh, I'm really interested in this one! I've been meaning to read it but haven't gotten to it yet. The snippets are interesting. Hope you're enjoying it!

  6. I'm very intrigued by the beginning. Putting this book on my TBR list.

  7. The narrator of the book has a great, distinctive voice. I'm going to give it a try.

    As for reading time, I almost always read in the evening. I try to get my chores, errands and writing done during the day.

  8. I hope you are enjoying Dear Martin. It's such a good book! It was one of my favorite reads last year.

    I have had days, weeks, and months like that too--where I fit in reading where I can because that's the best I can do. Life has a way of being that busy sometimes, doesn't it? The past few months I seem to have fallen into a pattern though, and it seems to be working well--at least for now. Reading on my lunch break on workdays and reading before bed. I also read with my daughter every day--I always forget to include that when answering questions like this. But that counts too, right? LOL

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Wow! That is some beginning!

    I forgot to put up my Book Beginning/Friday 56 post yesterday because I was celebrating my belated birthday with my mom and sister. I finally remembered and my post is up now. I added your link!

    1. Thank you for adding my link! Happy belated birthday!

  10. Oh oh, that doesn't sound too good for the person!! Here is my Bok Beginnings:

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
