Under the Tuscan Sun | Frances Mayes
post image

France!! I went there my senior year of high school as a class trip for students who took French class (20 *coughs* years ago lol). It‘s a beautiful country and we went all over, from Paris to Nice. I would love to travel to Florence Italy because that is where my Grandma was born and raised. I actually rented this movie and we watched it together. The joy on her face seeing parts she recognized was priceless. #7daygiveaway @Rachel.Rencher

Full Bleed | Dirk Wood

This is actually a hardcover magazine! It‘s Vol.2 and the first one was so amazing! No ads, just pure content! Great articles and comics. You can get these at your local comic shop or order them from the IDW website. I honestly can‘t recommend them enough! They usually have a Kickstarter for each issue, which is how I got both of mine.

1. Florence, Italy. It‘s where my Grandma was born and raised, so it would be very special for me to go there. Also Ireland has always been at the top of my list.
2. Hogwarts!!!!
3. J.K. Rowling, Dr. Suess, Shel Silverstein
4. Drive Route 66 beginning to end!
5. Nancy Drew......those were the first chapter books I remember reading when I was a kid and I thought she was so cool, lol!!
#tellmetuesday @Ke633 these were fun to answer!

Ke633 I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing. I‘ve been on a large part of Rt 66 but not the whole thing. That would be an awesome trip. 2y
bookish.escape @Ke633 have you really?! That‘s awesome! I hope someday I‘m able to. It‘s always been something I‘ve wanted to do. Plus I live on the WI/IL border and the route starts in Chicago so I wouldn‘t have to drive far to get to the starting point. ☺️ 2y

1. Usually only if I‘m going for a walk down by the lake. I like to stop and get an iced coffee (decaf, or my anxiety goes through the roof lol) and sit on a bench and read.

2. No, I love owning my own books.

3. Never. Reading on a Kindle or iPad gives me a
headache. I love having a physical book in my hand.

1. Always finish a chapter. I can‘t put it down in the middle of one, I think I‘m little ocd with that lol.
2. Most of the time I read in the evening, but occasionally during the day.
3. Nope, I can zone out in a book no matter how much noise.

bookish.escape @bookish22 @BennettBookworm thank you both for the input!! The book is always better, right?!?!!! I'm looking forward to watching the show as well, but most of the time if I read the book first, whether it's a movie or show, I get frustrated because so much is left out, lol. 3y
[DELETED] 206653737 I agree, while I understand they can't put everything in a movie or show it's so disappointing. 3y
