Where did you take your book this summer...

and where did it take you?

Just for fun, we'd like to take an informal survey of where you did your summer reading.  Was that novel really a beach read, or did you take it hiking in the mountains or on the plane ride to your family reunion?  Or, did you stay home and let the book take you for a ride?  Please take a moment to share your reading travels by adding a comment at the end of this post.

To get you started, we have...

Larry Adler relaxing on the shore of Lake Placid while he reads the Adirondack Trail Guide.

Sophia Friedman, really on the dock by the lake, visiting the Treski's house while reading Jacqueline Davies' The Lemonade Wars. 

Caleb Friedman in body is visiting Lake Placid, but in his imagination he's transported to the English village of Stilton as he reads The Mysterious Cheese Thief by Geronimo Stilton.


  1. I loved, loved the terrific photographs of this wonderful family enjoying the joys of summer reading. It did my heart good to see the children riveted by books instead of video games. Having Lake Placid in the background is a treat as well. May they all read forever.

  2. My beach read was "Song of Achilles" by Madeline Miller, a wonderful retelling of the Illiad from the perspective of Patroklos. I never liked Achilles in the Illiad, but he gained my sympathy with this novel. Being transported to the Greek Isles on a rainy day was a treat!
