Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Books With Sensory Reading Memories (where I was, what time of year it was, who I was with, what I was eating, etc.) which was submitted as a topic by Jessica @ A Cocoon of Books. Here we go, in no particular order:
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling - I took this with me on a family vacation in 2002 to Virginia. It got so hot that the spine glue melted - I still have that copy, at least I can say it looks unique and well loved!
The Final Descent by Rick Yancey - I have no idea why I remember this, but I can remember eating White Castle cheeseburgers and onion chips back when I was reading this.
The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare by Lilian Jackson Braun - Technically, this is just before I started reading it, but when I bought it at a yard sale the original owner talked to me about how much she loved the series.
Up The Down Staircase by Bel Kaufman - A friend of mine was in a production of this and at his urging I picked up a copy.
Slashback by Rob Thurman - I was reading this eighth installment of the Cal Leandros series on a trip to Ohio Amish Country - we even went to Heini's Cheese Chalet which has some of the best cheese.
Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines - I picked this up at the Island Bookstore on Mackinac Island. The cashier mistook me for a college student who lives on the island. I guess I have a clone out there somewhere!
Scowler by Daniel Kraus - I listened to this on audio - if you don't know it's a really dark and intense story. For some reason I decided it would be a good idea to listen in an empty room in the dark. Definitely a mistake on my part!
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick - I was listening to this on audio at work while I was digitizing 1930s traffic reports of Akron, Ohio - let's just say that 1930s Akron was a dangerous time to be alive.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - I listened to this entire classic on audio while biking on my favorite bike path over the course of a couple weeks.
Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson - I listened to this magnificent 18 cassette long audiobook while driving to work in my old car.
What are some of your sensory reading memories? Have you read any of the books on my list? As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
