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.

    Ooh that’s a beautiful picture. It definitely would be a beautiful setting to read a book! I would definitely want to check it out. I might even try reading there, even though I’m not a fan of reading outside. (I just find it too distracting!) 🙂

      Reading outside can be distracting especially if there’s a lot of people around. I always feel a bit self-conscious too wondering if anyone is judging what I’m reading. LOL!

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    What a beautiful spot! Scotland is one of those places I’ve always want to go and hope to be able to visit someday. 😀 Old follower via email.

      I hope you get to visit one day! Everyone around me was surprised when I announced that’s where I was going for grad school because I never expressed any interest in the country. I just fell in love with her and I miss her so much.

      Right at the start of spring and middle of summer is when it hits and then it just tapers off. :/ The park is a dream!

      I try to stay away from books that feature Scotland because I’m moping around for days. I miss it a lot.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      It’s not a hard a place to miss especially if you’re in the West End near Glasgow Uni. It’s right next to it. 😀 If you do end going, say hello to the city for me. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!
