Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I’ve read in coffee shops plenty of times. It’s usually where I hang out while waiting to meet up with friends for lunch or dinner because I only need to order a drink or a snack and I could stay for hours. But now that we’re in the middle of summer, I choose to go to coffee shops to take advantage of the free wi-fi and air conditioning. I mentioned in my previous Shoot That Book post that the temp here can get as high as 35 degrees (95 in Fahrenheit) – and it’s a humid kind of heat, feels very sticky. So here’s a snapshot of the books that I brought with me in Starbucks yesterday:
Joanna Bourne’s The Black Hawk, which I mentioned in yesterday’s post and Meg Burden’s Northlander. My friend Michelle of See Michelle Read and I are going to do a readalong for Northlander and we’re both pretty excited for it. Included in the picture is my Venti Basic Black iced tea (all gone) and a cup of water. Also, check out the bookmark that I’m using because I think it’s perfect for the weather that we’re having:
Pretty cute ice cream bookmark, huh? So do you read in coffee shops and do you have a favorite place? While we’re at it, I’d like to know what your usual drink is. I don’t have a usual because I like mixing things up so I won’t get bored. In Starbucks, it can be an iced tea, a caramel macchiato, soy green tea latte or a dark mocha frappucino. In Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, it’s usually a Southern Blend iced tea (I’m a fan of iced tea when it’s brewed and not made from a powder mix) or a Chai or Tropical Passion tea latte.
