First, the winner of a surprise prize from last week’s post is: limecello
Please e-mail me with your mailing addy so your prize can go out.
Okay, so I am doing really well…and I mean really well when it comes to reading for the Unleash Your Story fundraiser. I will update the progress meter for that tomorrow night, but let’s just say that I have met my original goal and then some.
And I am slowly inching my way toward the fundraising goal, but I could still use some donations if any of you are able to donate. Any amount helps and you can donate by clicking here. It’s a wonderful cause and I’d love to be able to meet my goal and help make a difference.
Remember, if I meet both of my goals, I am going to celebrate with a big giveaway.
So all of this reading has got me to thinking about…well…reading.
I have always been an avid reader. I wouldn’t go anywhere without a book or two. We even have video footage of me at about 2 or so at one of my brother’s little league games with a book. While other kids are playing, I am reading…or at least looking at the pictures.
In elementary school, I would take books with me out on the playground and in high school I read during lunch and classes (my teachers didn’t seem to mind as long as I did my work and continued to get good grades…which I did).
Even today I read wherever and whenever I can. I went to a NASCAR race last year and, yes, I took a book. And at my brother’s high school football game (he’s a coach) a couple of weeks ago, again, I took a book. I didn’t get to get the books out though at either place but they were there if I needed them.
Books are like my security blanket…they bring me comfort and I don’t want to go anywhere without at least one.
This month I have done more reading than I have in a long time. I am slowly chipping away at the TBR Mountain Range and I am thrilled about that.
And although I haven’t done it this month, my love of reading has led to me reading in some strange places in the past…bathrooms, movie theaters, etc.
So I was wondering, what is the strangest place you have read a book? And do you take one with you when you go places or is it just me?
Once again, I’ll give away a surprise prize to a commenter. Winner will be announced next Sunday!
