Q: Tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.
Well I can’t really sit outdoors in the Spring and Summer because I have a slight sun allergy. No matter how much sunblock I slather on, I might be okay for an hour before the itching hits me, usually about an hour or two later. So I’ll read indoors, but I can tell you about my favorite spot when I was living in Scotland.
This is the Kelvingrove Park area in Glasgow. It’s located behind Glasgow University and it’s very much a classic example of a Victorian park in terms of its layout and foliage. The River Kelvin runs through it and at the southwest corner of the park is the Kelvingrove Art Museum. I loved reading here because of the trees and on a breezy day, it was easy to put a book down and imagine the Victorians strolling on a warm dry day. It also was the perfect way to relax and get lost in a book. I miss this city so very much.
