  1. It`s raining a lot here in Norway aswell..
    I bicycled down to the store. Couldn`t see a thing and was soaking wet when I arrived.. Bought myself a candle, new thick socks and candy for todays read-a-thon 🙂

  2. It’s a cool morning in SoCal and I’m about to start breakfast or break my fast as they say in A Clash of Kings. I have been putting off finishing it, but the silence has let me enjoy this book more today than previous.

  3. a bit of sun behind the clouds – hopefully warm enough for me to open the window for a bit this afternoon. Unseasonably warm for Maine in mid-October. I’ll take it!

  4. It is a beautiful weather outside. Sun is shinning and I can literally hear birds singing right now 😀 I might go out and read in a park in a couple of hours!

  5. The first sign of sunlight on my pages had me seeing spots for a moment, but the clouds seem to have reasserted themselves now.
    (In Cambridge, England.)

  6. Weather? That’s probably something that takes place outside, and I am huddled safely within. Nothing to do with me or my book.

    (PS. The link to the coffee or tea challenge doesn’t work for me — it doesn’t affect me because I’m a soda drinker, though.)

  7. Pretty sure it’s going to be a sunny day here in northern California — it usually is! The sun is just coming up, though, and I haven’t been outside yet. The window feels a little on the chilly side at the moment. Hopefully it’ll warm up so that I can go for a walk with an audiobook later on.

  8. Here in Scotland, it’s pretty surprisingly alright! I’ve just raised the blinds and there are blue skies with some clouds, but a fair amount of wind! Trees whipping about everywhere!

  9. Nice to see some fellow Canadians on here. 😀 It’s gloomy in Ottawa and I’m curled up in a blanket. If I don’t leave the house today I’m not going to feel particularly guilty about it.

  10. We’ve got plenty of sun here in northeastern part of Slovenia. After a summer full of rain now we have sunny fall. The world has gone mad. 🙂

  11. Glad you liked the music video – listening to jazz whilst reading in a hammock sounds like an absolute dream! I will have to imagine a hammock whilst my legs are thrown over the side of the couch! Also Gilmore Girls do rock!

  12. Lucky you with the sun out but I totally see what you mean about the rain! It is on and off here now which would kinda suck if I had any intention of leaving my house again but right now after all my errands are finally done – I’m good!

  13. Rainy and chilly in Southeastern Wisconsin, USA. Sun may come out later, but right now, it’s perfect for a cozy corner and some books.

  14. Hahaha! Keep that AC on before you melt! Either that or cause a forest fire with all of your surrounding books!

  15. Indeed – something therapeutic about the sound! I actually downloaded a sound app the other day – might put on a storm – all the best bits without the bad weather!
