Sprinkle No. 39

Your *sprinkle* this week: Read outside.


Here’s how it works:

Grab a book you’re reading, or want to read and find a spot to settle in where you can feel the sun, or appreciate some shade, or smell the sprinkler watering the grass. Pay attention to what you hear and remind yourself that life is good and there is much to learn.

Feel free to leave me a comment when you come in. Tell me what you read and where!



  1. Great idea! I’m gonna do it … I think it’s just what I need to recharge so I can tackle the week.

    I am really in love with my Kindle and devouring Romance Novels at the moment. Reading has always been my way of relaxing. Nothing better than a rainy day curled up with a good book. Florida gets rain daily this time of year so I have plenty of excuses to read!

    I usually read my one of my favorite scrapbooking magazines while I am getting ready for bed. ‘Love the inspiration!!

  4. Since I just had a total hip replacement 3 weeks ago, I have been doing a lot of reading. I’m planning to go out and sit in the shade today and do a bit more reading. Just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful summer weather.

  5. check. :) we stopped at our new house (on the lake) and spent a few quiet moments. some of us read. others just rested. then I came home and read this. how timely.

  6. I read every single day – it is my way of winding down at the end of the day.
    I actually was able to lay on a float in the pool yesterday (with ample sunscreen, of course) and finish up “Private” by James Patterson. Pretty good book – no difficult thinking! :)

  7. I spent the weekend reading: Private (James Patterson), Ice Cold (Tess Gerritson), The Bodyguard (Cherry Adair), and started Silent Scream (Karen Rose). I’ll be reading it in the doctor’s office this afternoon when I go for my appointment. I read everywhere: outside, inside, on the train, in the car, at stop signs, at dinner, in the bathroom (Oops! Should I not have admitted that?!?) – I’m addicted to reading so this Sprinkle is right up my alley!!!

  8. Last weekend I read Sarah’s Key out on my deck. The deck is on the upper level of my house, shaded by the trees. When I sit out there it makes me feel like I’m in a treehouse–I love it!! The book is very good too!!

  9. My favourite place to read is snuggled up in bed in the morning before tackling the day. But today I sat on the patio and read a bit more of “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton for our August book club. Thanks for asking :)

  10. I have been doing this all week! It gets so chilly in the house with the AC that I need to go outside and warm up with my book. I’ve been cruising through The Count of Monte Cristo. WOW- what a huge book! I can’t believe I’m almost done with it now, too! all 1089 pages! LOL

  11. i read outside almost every night during the summer by the pool while my kids swim. i look forward to it! right now i’m re-reading (re-re-re-re-re-reading, lol) the 7th Harry Potter book.

  12. I would love to read outside but when the day time high is 110 and its still 94 at 10:00 p.m. its not very feasible. I could sit in the sprinklers but my book would get wet. Maybe I’ll take a day off and go to the mountains.

    I did not know this was the sprinkle for the week but completed it today. I took the kids to the pool and read there! It is one of my favorite places to read. I read each night before falling asleep and often times have to force myself to put the book down. I also enjoying reading while riding in the car (hubby drives most of the time). I generally read cozy mysteries and have to have a stack ready to read on the nightstand…I do not like to be without a book. I will start Through the Grinder (a coffeehouse mystery) tonight by Cleo Coyle.

  14. Kathy jo Camacho says:

    Reading, “The Last Day of My Life” by Jim Moret. Very thought provoking and makes me want to journal more then ever before.

    I love to read on the front porch swing—right now I’m reading Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove series—lovin them!
