Follow Friday and TGIF (2-24-12)

Happy Friday everybody! I hope that you are having a great week and ready for the weekend. Unfortunately, I have to work all weekend, but that's the life of a restaurant manager! Oh well ... time for some Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

Activity! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most!

Well, I'm going to sound lame, but I don't really have a favorite place to read. In the summer, I love being outside and reading, but the place doesn't matter to me. Right now, I love going to Starbucks, getting my Skinny Vanilla Latte, and enjoying my book. But the place doesn't matter, so long as the book that I'm reading is a good one!

GReads asks:

Required Reading: Which book from your school days 
do you remember reading & enjoying? Is there a book published now 
that you'd like to see in today's curriculum for kids?

Great question! My favorites that we had to read were probably To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and Ethan Frome. Something that I think should be included in today's curriculum? Harry Potter. Haha, I have no idea, but I wish that had been required reading when I was in school!

So, where's your favorite place to read? What was your favorite required reading in school? Let me know, and have a great weekend!


  1. I love to read in the same places as you! Especially with a latte :)

    La Toya (La Toya, Literally.)

  2. That's cool. I wish I had more than one place where I could just go, relax and read :)

  3. When I was in fourth grade, one of our options for lit circles was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which was a big hit. I hope they still read it!

  4. Wow, Starbucks, good idea! I don't have one in my city, but there's one near campus... I'm planning to go there to read someday :)

    When I went to school there weren't many good books to read. The first that I REALLY enjoyed was Ella Enchanted. I loved it! I think it was the one that got me reading. And yeah, I'd definitely include Harry Potter.
