It’s Thanksgiving in the US. Which of course means nothing to Australians. BUT…
There’s a nice little initiative going on at Jen’s Bookshelves and Literate Housewife – they’re hosting Thankfullly Reading Weekend, November 22-25, 2012 –
“There are no rules to the weekend, we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for 2012.”
I like the spirit of it. And I like any excuse to devote some solid time to reading.
Part of the weekend includes some mini-challenges. The first is A Thankfully Reading Recipe where we’re asked “What ingredients when combined together make for a perfect read for you?”
Here’s my perfect reading recipe:
1. Take one sunny beach day.
2. Make sure there’s sand between your toes.
3. Add your latest read.
4. Combine. Guaranteed perfect result every time.
Love this so hard! The sad thing is that since I’m not in Australia that it’s too cold here to sit on the beach and read. I’ll be thinking about this all winter long! 🙂
Wish it was a true reflection of my everyday life – alas, it’s not!
Looks great to me! Silly me, I actually put up a recipe on my blog post for this challenge, but to me, eating and reading go hand in hand! Hope your holidays are good!!
As you can see from my book reviews, food and reading DO go hand-in-hand for me as well!
Ingedients for me are simple. A good book and a comfy chair. That’s it! Reading at the beach and sand between the toes. No never, for this person. And I live near the beach. But swim only and then go home and get changed.
Ha ha! I would LOVE to live closer to the beach – perhaps that’s why I like it so much when I’m there? Most of my reading is done in my chair or in bed – by the sea/pool is my ultimate.
I love to read on the beach, too, but there are a lot of distractions from other people around you unless you’re lucky enough to be there when no one else is!
