I love reading about travel in books and blogs--glad to hear I'm not the only one lapping up the beautiful photos and experiences.

The love the color unity of your words and the book's binding.

That's what I love about books too - being taken to other worlds, peeking into other lives.

I would much more happily embark on a page/word journey than a plane/car journey of inconvenience and grime.

I finally bought "The Secret Life of Bees" this morning. Have you read it? My book group is doing it next time...(I shall have to put aside my Dean Koontz "From the Corner of His Eye" if I intend to read it before we meet again!

gracie said...

cool photo and font color... voyeur?? perhaps... although some reads feel a lot like participation

tinker said...

Yep, I have much love for armchair travel; sometimes it's the only way to fly.

I adore reading and have just bought 9 books from amazon on the advice of other bloggers, only to remain untouched beside my bed. Other times I can trough through 2 0r 3 in a week. It is bizarre the randomness of it all.
