It’s Friday. I’m in New York, visiting my brother, and above all, I am not at work. How much better can this Friday be? I plan to spend some time this afternoon on a bench in Central Park (if it doesn’t rain), reading my Friday Reads pick – Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman. It will come out in August, and I am loving it so much, I really don’t want any of you to have to wait. But wait we will.
When I started #fridayreads take me away in tandem with THE Friday Reads movement (?), I wanted to talk about fun books, books you read just because. Books you read without having to put too much thought into the reading. But escapist reading isn’t just about not thinking. It’s also about reading about a place or time other than where/when you are. So this week, just a question to answer:
Do you favor any particular setting as the backdrop to your reading choices? What books have you read set in another locale that made you feel like you were there?
