Friday blog hop!

Posted on: October 22, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Crazy for Books, the blog hop is a fun way to say Hi to book bloggers you already know, and meet new friends.

If this is your first time at Little Red Reviewer, Welcome! I review mostly scifi, fantasy, new weird, graphic novels, a litle bit of non fiction, and if you know where to look, even a little romance. Take a look around, check out the review index, make your self at home.

I’m getting super excited for November, when it’ll be Manga and Graphic Novel November around here. Check out the Manga and Graphic Novels link at the very top for more info. Is gonna be awesome!

Anyways, back to the hop. This week’s question is:

“Where is your favorite place to read? Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?”

My most favorite place is where I am right now. On the comfy sofa, with a coffee within reach. I so love this old squishy comfy sofa. We got it for free a few years ago when some friends at work were getting new furniture, and it’s so ugly, such a peice of garbage, and it’s falling apart. But it’s so squishy (terrible for your back!) and so comfy if you’re sitting sideways (like I am right now). My husband and I fight over who gets to sit in this spot when we’re watching tv. and the coffee maker just told me something wonderful is ready. :)

When the weather is nice, I do enjoy sitting outside and reading, but I hardly ever get anything actually read, because there are so many wonderful distractions out there. look at the bird! look at the flower! look, there’s my neighbor! hey, you can hear the train! look at the tree! look at the bug! I’m like a chipmunk on speed out there.

I love a free couch! Woop! I usually end up sideways on my couch too. I am always all curled up with the pillows all around me.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting this morning. I really very seldom read outside. Never thought about it much, but sometimes I’ll start to read outside, and about fifteen minutes later, I just get up and move inside the house. Might be some quality of the light outside just doesn’t seem “right” for reading to me.

I have had so many couches over the years, but they all have one thing in common…they have to have big curled arms and lots of pillows.

Hey there, hopping back. We used to have a great couch too…we actually called it “Couch.”

I have the same problem when reading outside. And I have the photos of the flowers, birds and other critters to prove it! I get a lot more reading done in the winter months. But my yard is still my favorite place for warm weather days.

I like your answer for this week’s question. Such a funny post, with all it’s funny distractions, and I know exactly what you mean about these distractions when reading outside: birds, squirrels, in May the smell of my lilacs, how my garden needs taming, how I have to pull weeds, how I should be working on my yard instead of reading:)

Thanks for stopping by on the hop! I agree, the best couches are the comfy old worn in ones!

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
