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.
