Today’s blog topic: If you could read a book anywhere in the world, what book would it be and where would you read it? The winners will be selected by random draw and will be announced tomorrow morning.
It would be a Sherlock Holmes collection..anywhere there is warm sun and ocean. 🙂
I would like to read “The World of the Saltmarsh” by Charles Seabrook on the Georgia coast.
I would like to read Catch 22 on the island of Pianosa.
It would be tempting to say something here about a work of great literature and intellectually stimulating surroundings, but the truth is that a fast-paced thriller or mystery, read on my screened-in porch during one of the Chicago area’s too-brief spells of fine weather, would be my perfect book experience. Either that or one of Tim Ferris’ engrossing science books that are so good (and easy-reading) that you are tempted to skip meals and stay up all night, consumed anywhere you can lug it; I just finished rereading of one of them. In either case, there just might be a beer at my elbow.
I read The Travels of Marco Polo while visiting many sites he visited hundreds of years before. That was pretty neat. But if I had to choose another I hadn’t done, I would like to read Heyerdahl’s Kon Tiki while sailing to the South Pacific.

As a mystery lover, I would have to choose the Sherlock Holmes canon of stories. The Victorian fog-covered streets of London become almost real within the stories. Of course these are best read from a Baker Street hotel.
The Bible, In the mountains.
I have an LED flood light that draws 17 Watts, but puts out as much light as a 75-Wayy incandescent. Best of all, I shouldn’t have to drag the ladder out to replace it until 2016, or so. Nice!
LED bulbs have CFLs beat all around.
I would love to be in Alaska again reading how to build a log cabin
“My First Summer in the Sierra” by John Muir, I would like to read it a little bit at a time while travelling along the same path he followed and described while writing the book.
I would read again NIKOLA TESLA…and hang out with him and tell him to keep on trying…..
Cosomos by Carl Saga, somewhere the sky is clear and you can see the milky way.
I’d like to read Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” while floating down the Mississippi River on a steamboat.
I would read Moby Dick on a boat cruising the high seas.
I would read one of Phillipa Gregory’s historic novel in England and go to the places she writes about in King Henry’s days.
I would read White Fang by Jack London overlooking a lake somewhere in Alaska.
I would read Fields of Fire by James Webb, while sitting on any beach
I would re-read “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” by John le Carré, in London of course.
I would love to read 100 years of soleto or “Cien anos de soledad” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Its inspirational how this writer describe a simple event and interconnet the events and time with out lost the reader. The place it will be in Seaside Park Bridgeport CT its a quiet and beutifull place.
I would read Anne’s House of Dreams in my own living room
I would read Fields of Fire by James Webb, while sitting on a beach anywhere.
I would take the time to read 1984 again, as George Orwell has been proven to be a prophet of our times. I would like to read it on a beautiful beach trying to forget how accurate he really was…
I would take my dog and read Steinbeck’s Travels with Charlie following the same route.
unbroken in green lake wi
The Bible, in Hawaii.
I’d read “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” sitting in a coffee shop in Stockholm!
Goodnight Moon with my daughter in Phoenix, AZ
A Sara Paretsky Mystery, anywhere in Chicago!
I would read “Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road” on the shores of Nova Scotia.
any book by Mary Higgins Clark in my living room in my comfy chair
According to the link, Book Lover’s Day was last month, August 9th!
But nevertheless, I like to read the latest non-fiction books in an actual Library. Right now, I’m reading a new book about Edison and how incandescent lights changed society.
AHHHH! You are absolutely right! I guess it would help if I were looking at the right month on my calendar 🙂 I will go up and comment on the post. Thanks Again!
Cosmos by Carl Sagan, outdoors under the darkest sky I could find.
treasure island , reading it on a deserted tropical island dreaming about pirates !
I would read “Goodnight Moon” in my rocking chair with my grandson in my lap….21 years ago…
I’d re-read ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ in a cafe at Baker Street, London UK!

I would read Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln” in Ford’s Theatre
Thomas Harris’s next book (if he writes another book) while lounging in my own living room.
Any book of my Daughter’s choosing while sitting together in our living room.
I would like to re-read Gone with the Wind on a porch swing on a breezy autumn day.
Probably a Louis L’ Amour book somewhere in the mountains.
Le Petit Prince Tunisia
or if the Tunisia is busy I shall read in Petra.
I’d reread “Confederacy of Dunces” on the NYC subway. I remember the last time I did so, I busted out laughing at a description of Miss Trixie and everybody on the train thought I was out of my mind!
I think I would re-read the Lorax and sit by the ocean to think about how luck we are.
I would read Earthly Delights by Kerry Greenwood, an author recommended to me by my aunt who is a writer. The place would be along Big Creek in the Bitter Root Valley in Montana. Looking at today’s news, I need a serene place to escape to in my head.
a Star Trek book while cruising through the universe.
I would read WRTH 2013 with a CCrane radio in my grandmother’s home in Londrina, Brasil.
