August 23, Saturday afternoon -- Reading Lisa Margonelli

Waiting for me to interview someone else reading

My sister, reading Oil on the Brain: Adventures from the Pump to the Pipeline, by local author, Lisa Margonelli.

After this my sister is going to go home and cast oil barrels in laytex and paper mache so that she can reproduce them in porcelain. She's having a ceramics show this fall.

What do you wait for that gives you time to read?

I haven't been to a bookstore lately, so I am unfamiliar with this title--but it seems like a timely subject.

Oilchanges, car inspections, doctors/dentists/eye doctors offices... I always have a book stashed in my car or in my purse - I even have a little something stowed away in my husband's glove box, for a rainy day.

I wait for my brain to turn off before I go to bed. Also, I find books very helpful when I have to wait in the doctor's office.

i wait for my sister, who shoots me a pained look of "i've got to interview this guy or i'll die" look and then scurries off to create material for her blog.

Sisters. Gotta love them. (And, I do know we sure love her blog, so we sooooooooo appreciate your patience!)

I wait for my children. After school, after dance, after whatever it is they have been doing!

I read when I'm waiting for the comptuer to reboot or sometimes for a light to turn green. Coming soon...I'll be reading while waiting in line at Walmart, I'm sick of it, but too poor to avoid it altogether.

I know nothing about this book, but it sounds fascinating! The title sounds like something out of The City of Dreaming Books! I've now put yet another post-it on my bookcase, with that book title on it.

Mostly I'm waiting for customers. It might be more like anti-waiting sometimes though if I may be honest!
