a good book

A good book is a good book, wherever you are reading it, but a good book enjoyed while sitting outside is one of my favourite things.  These are pics taken during a trip to Cypress Hills this past summer when I was taking a break from reading at our campsite. The book I was reading was “The Rosie Project” by Graeme Simsion.

The view while reading at the campsite

This is probably the third time I've posted a picture of this mug. I must drink my coffee from this mug on a camping trip.

“A story is not like a road to follow … it’s more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time.”
Alice Munro
