TGIF: Summer Reading

June 24, 2011

I got two and a half hours of sleep last night. It’s been raining, like, all week. I sort of feel like a groggy version of Eeyore.

But at least it’s Friday. Which means Miss Ginger over at GReads! has a question for me to answer. And it’s sunny and happy. So that’s nice.

Summer Love: Where’s your ideal place to take a summer vacation & get lost in a book?

Okay! Ideal place to take a summer vacation would have to be . . .  my bed. All I can think about right now is my bed. But no. In all seriousness, I was never really a summer vacation kind of girl. Nor am I a beach kind of girl. So I guess that my ideal vacation spot is somewhere in the woods, perhaps next to a nice lake, in a cabin with a porch. I would like to read on that porch with a glass of sweet tea (or wine) to accompany my books and my view of the lake.

HOWEVER. Since I will not be taking a summer vacation this year (well, I’ll be taking small weekend trips to, like, theme parks and potentially the Newport Folk Festival!!!!!) I can tell you my favorite place to read in NYC.

The glorious, amazing, unparalleled Central Park.

I’m sort of obsessed with reading here in the summer. And being here in the summer. Also, in the autumn.

So yeah! Those are my spots! I hope that everyone is having a way-less-than-Eeyorey Friday than I am, and that you have an amazing weekend! Happy Friday!

    AH, I guess autumn would be a good time to read in Central Park because there are less bugs! Hehe, but of course it is a beautiful place. I'm from/live in NYC! I'm also following you!xo,Lah @ Lazy Girl Reads

    Your ideal reading spot mirrors mine. 🙂 I hope you're able to get some sleep – maybe you can sneak out to Central Park for a read and a nap…Booking It with Runner Sami

    A unique answer, and I love it. Never been to NYC —- someday…..

    I've only been to NYC once, but visiting Central Park was definitely a highlight of the trip 🙂 that picture is gorgeous! I have many of myself in that same spot, haha.
