Feature & Follow Friday Blog Hop #3


Feature & Follow is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee!


This week's question:
Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon... so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.

I love reading outside in the summertime. Living in Seattle, that is the only time I get the chance to see the sunlight. I enjoy sitting on my back porch in my lounge chair with the sun shining down. I could sit there for hours and read (and probably obtain a terrible sunburn). 

What is yours?

  1. If I'm ever reading outside, I'm reading on my back porch too! Love the name of your blog: Starbucks + Books = Perfection! New GFC Follower :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! And hello to a fellow Seattleite! :D I have definitely gotten sunburned by reading too long outside - even when it's sunny, our cooler temperatures fool you into a false sense of security, and then you eventually go back inside all warm and happy... and red... and realize you should've put on sunblock, lol.

    1. The cooler temps and tricky clouds totally lead to sunburns. The pale skin from the lack of year round sun doesn't help either :-) Thanks for following!

  3. Thanks for stopping by! I wish I had a back porch to read on instead of walking for half an hour to get to mine. Following back!

  4. I also live in WA, but can't handle any sun, but do love the cloudy days, i used to go to the lake and read, when I could handle some sun in the summer. :) I have a pic posted if you want to come by. :)

    1. I crave the sun like a vampire craves blood :-) At least we can have warm temps with the clouds her in WA so you can still read outside :-) Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Great blog name! The sun is brutal in the summer where I live, so if I'm going outdoors, it's either before the sun is fully out or after it's started going down.

    1. I dream of brutal sun days :-) I am sure if I lived somewhere different, I wouldn't feel the same. Reading at sunrise or sunset sounds nice too though. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Hi from a new follower

    Glad that you like reading outside with the sun shinning down. I cannot stand the heat (mid 70 is find but above it I feel like I am on fire) so my favorite spot is in my room =)

    1. If you love the rain, you would love Seattle! It can get old after a while but sometimes it is nice to sit on the couch with a coffee, a book and listen to the rain, especially in spring or a summer storm. Thanks for stopping by!
