Friday Memes 5/29

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Can you read in a room with noise or do you have to have total quiet? 

My Answer:
Growing up with 8 siblings quiet wasn't easy to find so I quickly learned to block out noise and focus on my book! I do prefer reading when it's quiet but it's not necessary!

A distant flash of lightning crisscrossed the darkening skies of the west, followed by the call of a nearby loon. "I don't think you should set out." Caroline Taylor clutched her shawl tighter against the cool gust that wrestled with it. "The storm's coming fast."

My Thoughts
I love the wording used and it definitely makes you want to find out what happens next!

When I was younger, I could read anywhere. I'm one of seven myself. But now that I am older, I need it to be quiet. What book is yours from? You can find mine here... http://lisaksbookthoughts.blogspot.com/

I'd say I'm pretty good at blocking out noise as well, it's very necessary! I love lightning and storms myself, it's one of my favourite types of weather! Not quite sure this is one for me although I am intrigued! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have  great weekend!

I do most of my reading at work, and it's always loud. I can concentrate on books when I block out the noise. :D

Lisa-I hope that doesn't happen to me but I'm sure it will! The sentence was from Jody Hedlund's newest book!

Juli-Haha yeah it can be at times! Storms are pretty fun to watch though I'd say the wind is my favorite part!

Shannah-Good for you!
