Sunshine and Roses: BTT

Posted 20 September, 2007 by Trish in Reading Nook / 8 Comments


This week’s BTT is the reverse of last week’s question:

Imagine that everything is going just swimmingly. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and all’s right with the world. You’re practically bouncing from health and have money in your pocket. The kids are playing and laughing, the puppy is chewing in the cutest possible manner on an officially-sanctioned chew toy, and in between moments of laughter for pure joy, you pick up a book to read . . .

What is it?
Honestly? I usually will pick up whatever book I’m currently reading. Right now I’m reading two books–Travels with Charley and Howards End. I had some great news yesterday about a job offer, so I came home and read Travels with Charley–the more entertaining book of the two. I don’t think I really read for my moods, but I definitely don’t want to read something that is depressing (or boring like Howards End) if I am in a superhigh mood.

  1. My first instinct was to say “anything!” for this one. Then I went with cookbooks, because when I’m high-energy—which I tend to be when I’m really happy—I love to cook. :)

  2. I’m pretty much like you too!! This was a hard question! Even though I consider myself a “mood” reader, it’s really only reading moods I’m talking about. It doesn’t have anything to do with what’s going on in my personal life!

  3. I’m not generally a rereader but I’ve listed a few titles that would fit the bill. Howard’s End would fit more in my Bad Day category.

    I agree that I would tend to pick up whatever I was reading. BTW, I loved Travels with Charley.

  5. *Heather – I love to cook when I’m happy as well!

    *Stephanie – Hmm, I guess “reading moods” is a good way to put it. I don’t really read according to mood either, but I do have book moods.

    *Callista – I don’t normally re-read books, so there isn’t anything particular that I run towards.

    *Petunia – I’m really really struggling with Howards End. I had heard good things about it, but it is BORING!! :)

    *Bookgal – Thanks for coming by! I’m really enjoying the book as well. Definitely not what I expected!

    *Gautami – I need some moral support for Howards End. Maybe I just need to get further into it!
