Book Twins in New York.

Amongst many of my favorite things to do, reading in New York is at the top of the list.  It seems I do most of my reading of the year in New York.  New York seems to be the most conducive to it.  I usually have less work and more time, and for some reason I can read on the New York subway without getting motion sickness.  Another reason, probably the most critical, why I read so much is because of these two ladies.

These two are true readers.

I love going somewhere and reading with friends.  It sounds simple enough but it takes a certain kind of person to read for hours with.  I love that Karen and Balie have found that in each other.  They swap books and talk about books and swoon over books.  They talk about authors I've never heard of.  And are reading a different book every time I see them.  I love it.  I really love it.

So last year when it was beautiful out, we went around reading and taking some pictures.  It was loads of fun. :D

New York Public Library.

In all my years of visiting New York, I never really experienced the reading room at the main branch of the New York Public Library. With its glowing light and history, it makes for the perfect spot for reading. When I discovered my two friends spend their saturdays reading there, I'll be honest and say I was jealous.  I hope to spend a lot more time there next time around.
