Working that Summer Reading Bingo...

Have you read in a hammock yet?  Ms. J. has. 
Check it off. 
It looks like she is reading a magazine. 
Have you read any good magazines this summer? 
How about a food and cooking magazine?
Or a sports magazine? 
Anyone read about the World Cup in a magazine? 
The only problem with reading in a hammock... it is so comfortable it is pretty easy to fall asleep.

Reading on a boat?!

Here I am reading away on board our kayak.  I'm reading a graphic novel memoir about a women who grew up in Iran titled, Persepolis. It is fun to read outside, but it is very hard to paddle and steer while reading!

Caught reading in New York City

Ms. J. was recently visiting the Big Apple and in addition to eating dim sum in Chinatown and catching a show on Broadway she was caught reading in some interesting spots.  Can you guess where she is in each of these photos? She was reading The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. It was 864 pages and it weighed over 2 pounds!  It was long and it was heavy to carry around but it was amazingly good which is why I managed to finish it.  Then I read a book by Carl Hiassen who wrote Chomp and Hoot and Scat.  He is a very funny writer.
