As I was doing some blog organization this morning, I found this draft of a post long abandoned. The photo is from 3 years ago, when we were still living in our condo in the Seattle area, and the post was intended to show my cozy “reading space” for the Estellagram challenge of that month. I don’t know why I didn’t post it on that day, although I did include it in my summary post of the Estellagram photos of that month (which is why there are some comments attached to it). However, finding the photo this morning made me homesick for that reading spot. Incidentally, the photo also shows my blogging spot — with my laptop on the round table and the view out over the greenbelt. I have other reading and blogging spots now in our new home, but those were particularly nice ones and I didn’t realize that I was missing them until I found this photo!
An afternoon trip to Powell’s (at Cedar Hills Crossing) yesterday, and there were readers everywhere!
On our walk this morning across the campus of Pacific University, we found a new “Little Free Library” in the middle of campus. What a nice way for the University to encourage reading and sharing books … for the college students and for us townsfolk, too!
I enjoyed participating in the #EstellaGrams bookish photo-a-day challenge this month. It really is a challenge to keep up and do a photo every day, but I’m glad I did it. It was fun to look at my reading life from a different angle, and I particularly enjoyed blogging a little bit each day. Thanks for following along with me this month. And a special Thank You to Andi of Estella’s Revenge and Heather of CapriciousReader — who are The Estella Society — for putting together this fun challenge.
Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Fluff.” I didn’t realize there was actually a genre called “Fluff”!
Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Yellow.” This is a book on my shelf that I’ve been interested in reading.

Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Growing.” For me, it should read “
Growing.” Hubby and I have been seriously downsizing our library, which is something I never thought we would do. But as we move closer to retirement, and closer to the big move to our new home in another state, we simply can’t move that many books. So, we’ve given our kids first choice, donated many to the library, and sold some…
But lest you worry that we will be starting our retirement years [which translates into “time for reading!!”] without books…The treasures, of course, we have kept.

Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Snuggle.” To tell you the truth, I’d love to stay home from work today and snuggle up with a really good book!

Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Reading Music.” It’s been a long time since I practiced the piano, but I do love music, it’s a very important part of my life, and I worked hard on being able to read music earlier in my life!

Today’s topic for The Estella Society’s bookish photo-a-day challenge is “Reading Nook.” Here’s my current absolutely favorite spot to read…my reading nook at our new home in Oregon.
