Happy Summer Solstice!  What do you have in store for the longest day of the year?

My day will be spent drinking green smoothies, running errands, and beginning Wuthering Heights.  Jayme sent me Wuthering Heights as a part of a book exchange Mayte put together.  It was such a neat little swap, and I was so happy to participate in it and learn about so many bloggers favorite books in the process.

I wasn't scheduled very much this week at work, so I think I'm going to take the extra time to catch up on my reading.  Have a lovely summer's day!

  1. Ooohhh, that sounds like a fun idea. I wasn't a huge fan of "Wuthering Heights," but it's a classic, so I guess everyone should read it at least once. I'm reading "Feast of Crows" from the "Game of Thrones" series. Trying to get my wizard fix while I wait for season 3.

  2. Ahh the joys of almond butter, it is so damn good. And as soon as I read the words Wuthering Heights, all I hear in my head is "HEEEAATHHHCLIIIIFFF". I don't think she ever screams that in the book, but in my head she does.

    Oh and I intentionally didn't mention books, just because that is the one thing I find hard to give away. I still have the books I read as a kid on my shelves. When it comes to books I don't see a linear progression as I do with the clothing I have owned, simply because you grow out of clothing, but you never grow out of books. You may not want to read them for a while, but they are always there years later ready for you read again and it's like the story has entirely changed without the words having changed, simply because you've changed. It's like meeting with an old friend after having not seen each other in years, and within 30 seconds it's like nothing has changed, but you're both able to appreciate things more.

    1. I'm the same way with books. I'm afraid I've run out of proper shelving for them too.

  3. Have you read Wuthering Heights before? I had to read it in my second year women's lit class in university and then I re-read it a couple of months ago. The first time I read it, I didn't find it all that engaging, but this time, I really enjoyed it.

    I love the idea of a book exchange. How fun! Right now I'm reading a book called The Edmonton Queen. It's about the drag scene in the late 80s and early 90s in Edmonton. So far, SO GOOD! (I just picked it up last night. I actually met the author at an art opening, so he signed it for me. So fun!)

    Well, enjoy your lovely day of reading and green smoothies.

  4. Today I'm just about to leave to go do a creative photoshoot with some of my former classmates. It is hot here, as in no one can deny climate change when Canada feels like 110 degrees.
    If I end up with a tan line in the shape of my camera across my face, this is my explanation.

  5. Sounds like an awesome summer solstice to me! I miss smoothies so much! I should probably seek one out.
    It's too bad I couldn't participate in the exchange, but it's such a good idea, we have to do it again.
    Sometimes not working much can be a GREAT thing! Glad you're using your time off to read! :)

  6. That looks so yummy. Wuthering Heights was one of my favorite books we read in AP English, so I hope you enjoy! I still haven't gotten my book yet, so I'm hoping it's just delayed postage and the person hasn't forgotten, haha.
