This past week I was on vacation in Nevada, and on Saturday I had the pleasure of reading in a beautiful garden at Edith Palmer's Country Inn in Virginia City. That's me up above, reading Where the Dogwoods Bloom among the greenery! The sun was shining, the sky was a lovely blue, and the flowers were cheery as I held this delightful little book in my hands. (If you would like to read my review of the book, click HERE.)
Did anyone find some time for reading this weekend? (What a silly question!) If so, where did you do your reading? If you get a chance for some more quick reading, check out the poem I just posted by clicking HERE or scrolling down the sidebar. This poem was where the title of my blog came from.
And now, enjoy an interview with our very own Tammy (Bluerose) from Bluerose's Heart!
Amber: Where is your favorite place to read? Do you prefer curling up by the fire or going out into the sunshine?
Tammy: My absolute favorite place is on my front porch. I read somewhere (I can’t remember where) that a book is always better outside, and I completely agree. There’s nothing like hearing nature while reading! I live in the country surrounded by trees and fields, so I get to see a lot of nature, too. It’s so fun to look up from my book to see the hummingbirds fighting, or a rabbit hopping across the yard. We’ve counted 14 deer at one point in the field behind our house. Nature and a good book just makes the world seem more peaceful and brings me closer to God!
Amber: Where is the most interesting place in which you have read a book? (This could include an intriguing town, an exotic trip, or simply an unusual quiet spot.)
Tammy: The last book I read traveled a little more than normal. One half was read at the lake, where we went to visit my husband’s family. (I took advantage of a babysitter!!!) The other half was read in a vehicle on the way to and from my son’s doctor appointment, which was about 3 1/2 hours driving time. (I took motion sickness medicine to be able to do this!)
Amber: If you could choose any location to read in for a day, with any kind of scenery, where would you want to go? And if you could choose to bring only one fiction book with you for this day trip, which would you choose?
Tammy: I would definitely choose the beach! It’s been awhile since I’ve got to go enjoy the ocean. I’ll assume this trip is after September 1, and I would bring A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman.
Amber: Which upcoming release (book) are you most look forward to, and why?
Tammy: We all know I’m really looking forward to A Hope Undaunted, because Julie’s books have quickly became one of my favorite series’ ever! I also want to add two more, though. I can’t wait to read Karen Witemeyer’s Head in the Clouds, because I loved Tailor-Made Bride. And last, but not least, Jan Karon’s In the Company of Others. I started reading The Mitford Series several years ago, and it’s another of my favorites. I can’t wait to see what’s going on with Father Tim and Cynthia.
Amber: I'm definitely with you on the release of A Hope Undaunted! Can't wait! Thanks so much for joining us today, Tammy!
Happy reading, everyone!
