TGIF at GReads! (15) & Weekly Recap

Friday, October 14, 2011

This Friday blog hop is run by Ginger at GReads! (who also created this beautiful button). Each week she posts a new question for us to ponder. Click the button to join in!

This week's question is:

Show & Tell: Where do you grab a book and get lost in it? Show us your favorite spot you like to read at.

As weird as it may seem, I actually love reading on the train. My commute is one of the few times during my day that I can spend time alone and uninterrupted. I find it much harder to concentrate on my reading when I'm at home with the husband and the dog. Plus, the train noise and rocking is kind of soothing.


My weekly recap is inspired by the phenomenally talented, kind and generous Small Review. If you are not already following her, you are really missing out. Also, have I mentioned how much I love Cool Text? They're the folks that allow me to make these cool (and simple) text buttons - for FREE!

If you're a first time visitor, or just didn't get the chance to stop by this week, here's what you missed:

If I had a train ride every day, I'd definitely read, too! Seems like the perfect place for it. :)

I used to love to read during travel time, but now I get motion sickness, so I'm a little envious of you!

NaKesha said...

I get motion sickness too when I try to read in a moving vehicle. I'm always jealous of people who could read on the bus/train. Plus it would have made those long childhood road trips so much better!

Alexa said...

Reading during my daily commute is one of my favorite things to do as well!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh I have a feeling that reading on the train would be like me reading in the car. Instant headache. I'm so jelly of people that can do it! :)

great choice! lots of time to get reading done :)

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

I think reading on the train is great! I used to read all the time on the Trax in Utah :)

I am jealous of the ability to read during your commute! We don't really have reliable public transportation way out here in the middle of nowhere, so I as stuck driving my 90 minute commute for 3 years... that as before I discovered the joy of audiobooks... so no reading for my commute! (Now? My commute is from my bedroom to my couch - so not so much time to read in that journey either ;) )

I love that picture!! You read on a train- thats awesome. I get sick if I read on anything in motion, so I use audio books for the car...:)

I can read on the train too. I solved the problem of not being able to read in the car by getting audio books!

Because I don't live in the city, I have a romantic fantasy about public transportation. In the town where I live it's a joke, so whenever I visit New York (or Boston, etc), public transport seems incredibly reliable and efficient. And, since someone else is driving, you can read. Which is my way of saying I totally envy you.
