For this edition of #TopTenTuesday, we are talking about
“Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit” (submitted by Georgia @justreadthemm).

Thursday Travels #2


Brona, who blog about book at Brona’s Books, is also a fantastic photographer and loves traveling. She invited me to her Thursday Travels meme.
I don’t travel much, but I thought I could give it a try.

Today, Brona highlights landscape.
Here is  a picture I took in Knowlton, in the Eastern Townships (Quebec). This is actually the little city where Louise Penny lives, the author of the great Armand Gamache series, so it’s a bit like Three Pines (since that post, I have read them all) and a Three Pines sign welcomes you!
Which reminds me, I have never yet done a post on my visit, so this could be a taste of it.


This is not far from the great bookstore. I thought this shot gave a great idea of the peace and beauty of the place.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 24 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Today, the challenge is based on an idea I submitted.


Six degrees of separation from Bout to Books
Find an original way to connect the two words (Bout and Books) through six books
Thanks to Emma (Words and Peace) for today’s challenge.

I submitted this idea, based on the quirky way I do the monthly meme Six degrees of separation. I tried something similar but it didn’t work as expected, so here is what I came up with, based on titles I have read – click on covers to see my reviews
