THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favourite place to read in?

I think I’m just going to answer the random question this week. Currently my favourite place to read is anywhere. Since we moved here a couple of years ago I haven’t really found a favourite place to read. I like to read outside, so now that the weather is getting warmer I might try sitting out on our porch to read. The only drawback is that it’s at the front of our house and we live on a fairly busy corner. I can see right into Tim Hortons from our porch, but we’re far enough away that it might not be a problem. I’ll see how it works out anyway.

Bookmark Monday – Queen Victoria (May 22)

bookmark-mondayBookmark Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Aloi from guiltless reading. Take a picture of one of your favourite bookmarks, post it on your blog, and head over to guiltless reading to share a to your post.

Today is the Victoria Day holiday in Canada, so I thought I’d share this picture of a souvenir bookmark that dates from 1897 and was issued to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It is on display at the British Museum.
