I used to read on my short (25 minutes door to door) commute to work when I worked out of our downtown office. I even perfected the art of simultaneously walking and reading so I could squeeze in a couple more pages to and from the subway.
But in April, our department got moved to the company's head office building. The upside is it's closer to home so I can walk or ride my bike along Vancouver's stunningly beautiful seawall, but I usually ride because I can get to work in 15 or so minutes (door to door) vs. a 30 minute walk that can get a bit sweaty (TMI!) in the warmer summer months. Unfortunately, reading and walking the seawall results in my feeling motion sick - I think it's the small bricks used as pavers because I see them out of the corner of my eye as I'm reading. Strange, I know, but there you have it.
Sadly, I have not perfected the art of simultaneously cycling and reading. So that means I have to carve out other time to read and I'm still struggling to do that because that "other time" is my sewing time.
I did get some fabulous quality reading time on holidays last week, and I read The Town That Drowned written by Riel Nason, who is a quilting blogger!
I. Loved. This. Book. So warm, so lovely, so touching. Typically Canadian in its beautiful sense of place, this novel is a coming-of-age story and so much more.
Have a lovely weekend!
