I’m participating in the Good Books Inc. Scavenger Hunt hosted by the lovely and talented girls over at Padfoot and Prongs. The challenge is to complete 10 different book and reading related challenges within a few months. Since the deadline for entries is today, I’m finishing up with my last two entries. I’ve been procrastinating on this particular challenge, which was so silly because it was so easy. Here is challenge #1:
Take a picture of you reading somewhere that is not your house or apt etc. examples park, subway, restaurant etc. Find a new favorite place to be literary.
Anyway — enough with the disclaimers — here is me reading my “car book.” This is the book that I keep in the car to read if I am stuck in the car for any length of time. My “car books” are chosen to be easily picked up and put down and read over a long space of time. My current “car book” is called The Most Wonderful Books: Writers on Discovering the Pleasures of Reading. It was edited by Michael Dorris and Emilie Buchwald. It is a delightful book full of short essays by 57 different contemporary writers about the books and events that made them lifelong readers. I’ve had it as a my car book for about a year (!) and am actually getting close to finishing it (so perhaps you can expect a review pretty soon — even though I probably remember almost nothing of the essays I read a year ago). So, without further ado, here are the photos of me reading my “car book.”
And, yes — I never drive and read at the same time! This is only for when I am stuck somewhere (too early to pick-up at school, waiting for my husband to run a quick errand). Am I the only one who has a car book? Do any of you have a car book too?
