Friday Books: Reading in Iowa

I do not have a book report for you this week, I am sorry to say. I am about halfway through All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. So far it is excellent.

Instead of a book review, I will share a couple of pictures taken while attending the AQS (American Quilting Society) show in Des Moines last weekend. This first one I love. Quilting, as you can guess, is mostly a hobby taken up by women If men are around, they are often just waiting for their Significant Other to finish whatever shopping or browsing she is doing. This guy was reading, in a prominent waiting spot, surrounded by no one. His Whoever-He-Was-With was sure to spot him as she (or it could be a he) departed from the show area. Disclaimer: I realize there are also many men heavily involved in quilting, but I don't think this man was one of those guys.

This reader was a little removed from the actual door area and was snuggled up next to the column. Not as prominent as the previous guy. Whatever. I just love that they were both occupying their time by reading.

This is my cousin reading on our last day in Des Moines.

I know I promised more quilt photos -- they are coming! Time has gotten away from me this week, and I haven't been able to be as prompt as I wanted. I'm hoping to get the photos up some time this weekend. Until then, keep reading!

even though I have a tablet that I nearly always have with me, I finally got a smart phone this week. The second thing I set up on it after syncing it with my computer and tablet was Kindle. And I downloaded two books to it so I will now never have an excuse! Even if I only have two minutes, I can READ!!!! Yahoo!
