Booking Through Thursday: In Public

btt button

Question September 22, 2011:  Do you carry books with you when you’re out and about in the world?
And, do you ever try to hide the covers?

My answer: Absolutely!! When I'm reading a book I usually take it with me EVERYWHERE! Well, by usually I mean before Félix was born. If we're out and about at this point it's because we are running errands so that doesn't really leave time for reading. When we were living in Toronto and I was on the subway for 45 minutes each way I ALWAYS had a book with me. Did I ever hide a cover.....I don't think so but I know there were a few times where I felt a bit self-conscious about a title/cover, but I can't think of any specific examples.

Too long...and The Irish Country Series

I can't believe it's been 1 whole month since I've posted ANYTHING on here-not even a Booking Through Thursday or Friday Fill-Ins!!! How can this be? Well, I suppose having a 2 1/2 month old baby may have something to do with it, plus the visitors we've had, plus the 2 weeks we just spent back home in Winnipeg visiting family.

I have managed to read a few books since my last post-namely the first three Irish Country books by Patrick Taylor: An Irish Country Doctor, An Irish Country Village, and An Irish Country Christmas.

Please check out his website for book descriptions!! I know I should be reviewing them since this is a blog about reading (mainly), but as I think I've mentioned recently, I'm having a hard time finding the time and patience to give a thorough review, but I do want to keep blogging about reading-so I figure it's better to write a little something (even if it's just the titles and author's of the books) so that I don't completely stop, in the hopes that one day I will be able to write more! SO I hope you keep stopping by, but I'll understand if you don't!
