‘Books I’m Reading’ with Martha Stewart

Just wanted to let you know about something fun that I’m participating in that launched today. Martha Stewart has started a Books I’m Reading section on her blog. Three of the bloggers in her Martha’s Circle network will be reading along and writing about the books with her…and I get to be one of the bloggers, along with Black Eiffel and Oh Happy Day. I LOVE reading, so this is right up my alley. (Click here for the press release if you would like to read more details, and click here for Sony’s special Martha “Books I’m Reading” page.) Sony sent each of us a lovely Sony Reader Pocket Edition. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a reader, any reader, for ages. I’m actually really liking it. The reader is so much easier to hold and read in bed than a book! {Insert choirs of angels singing from on high.}

The first book is Cold: Adventures in the World’s Frozen Places by Bill Streever. As I awaited to hear which book Martha picked first, I must admit a book like this was the furthest thing from my mind. But after reading her first blog post today, it all makes sense now! I’m about 50 pages into the book and will wait to share my thoughts until I’ve completed it. I will say this…what were all those Arctic and Antarctic explorers in the 1800s thinking?!?!

Off to the kitchen. I’m going to start cooking up some Thanksgiving food and will {hopefully} have a post and recipe for you later today!

      I’m super excited about it….and definitely feel grateful for all these fun things I get to be a part of! 🙂

    I was originally against readers/Kindles of any kind. I like to hold a book in my hands, but now that you mention it, I like lying down in bed to read before I go to sleep, and a reader would be MUCH easier to hold!

    And that’s so exciting that you’re one of the bloggers!

      I was originally not to excited about the readers either. I love reading, I love books. but I must admit, we have SO MANY BOOKS it’s starting to bog me down, so I’ve been trying to borrow books, go to the library, give books away when I’m done reading them, etc….just so I don’t end up with so many. I’m actually kind of loving the idea of having a lot of my books digital. I’m coming around myself!! and, seriously, love it when I go to bed at night!

    is your reader pink like the picture?

    • Jane Maynard

      no! I wish it was! mine is boring old silver. which I’m sure nate appreciates, in case he ever uses it. 😉
