This month's Where in the World are you Reading is actually all about WHO you are reading with. Kelly is hosting and you still have a few days to submit your links, so join the fun! (think deadline to submit links is November 28th for the wrap-up on November 30th). If you're new to Where in the World Are You Reading, it's a monthly themed meme hosted by Lisa, Kelly, and myself. More details on the static page.
If you would have asked me two years ago who my reading companion was, I would have said MAGGIE! Oh how I miss Maggie. I never made mention of it on the blog because it was just too much at the time, but we had to put Maggie to sleep two Decembers ago when she was suffering from kidney failure. I had had her 10 years and I loved her so. If I was on the couch and needed someone to cuddle with I'd yell Maaaaaaaaaggie and she'd come running and jump up on my stomach. I miss her.
These days I've been trying to read more with Elle but she's busy! Her idea of reading is pulling ALL the books out of her little bin and playing. I'm not going to lie...her floor looks like this everyday except the day that I pick up the books to vacuum.
What? The Doggies are upside down? Also...it's "dah-hee." (She'll run after Lexi, our lab, screaming DAH-HEE! DAH-HEE! I've tried explaining that her name is Lexi but I also know that Ls are tough for babes to pronounce.)
But as much as I try (which honestly isn't often), I don't get much reading done with Elle around. She's way too interested in what mommy's doing. So, after she's gone to bed and all is quiet in the house...this is my real bookish companion:
(yes that's Mockingjay on my nightstand. yes I'm still only halfway through)
