Hi and welcome to the Readers’ Café – a place to gather and to share. Tonight we’re at a café situated on Lake Maggiore on the border of Switzerland and Italy.

Come on in and help yourself to a beverage of your choice. Then sit back, enjoy the summer evening and join in the conversation by posting comments below. Hit your vacation browser’s REFRESH button to see new comments as others join in the conversation. All that I ask is that you respect others and keep it relatively family-friendly. Also, keep in mind that this is a public space, so share what you feel comfortable sharing publicly.

Nothing goes with summer better than reading a good book, whether it is while sitting on the beach, slathered in sunscreen, or sitting under a shady tree with a cool drink close at hand, or, my favourite, propped up in bed with a cool breeze gently blowing in the window. What could be more lazy and luxurious?

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
~ Joseph Addison

Today’s question is:

What are you reading this summer? (Or, if you prefer your books as moving pictures, what movie did you see this summer that particularly touched you?) Why would you recommend it to someone else?

Filed under: Blogging, Readers Cafe — by Glenda at 11:12 pm on Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Following the successful opening of Readers’ Café two weeks ago, its doors will open again tomorrow, Wednesday, August 1st, 7-10pm Eastern Daylight Time. Readers’ Café is a place to gather and to share. Who knows who will show up or where the conversation will lead us. So, please join us for either the whole evening or pop in amidst your other duties. Hope to see you right here tomorrow.

Readers’ Café will be held the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Mark it on your calendar.

Vote for Glenda to be paid for a year for blogging

Until the café’s doors open on Wednesday evening, please vote for me so I may win the opportunity to be paid to blog for a year. Being paid to blog would enable me to focus more on blogging, rather than needing to find other ways to pay the bills.

I would like to request your support with these three small steps:

  1. Go vote!
  2. Remind yourself to vote daily until January 1st, 2008 (ie a daily appointment in Outlook or a Post-It note near your computer screen)
  3. Spread the word by telling your friends and, if you use social bookmarks, using the icons below to bookmark this post.

Thanks so much! I’m currently #4. With your help, I can reach #1!

Readers’ Café Officially Opens Its Doors

Hello and welcome to the Readers’ Café – a place to gather and to share. Given the beautiful summer weather, the patio is also open to enjoy.

Thank you for coming. I invite you to help yourself to a beverage of choice, get comfy and join in the conversation by posting comments below. All that I ask is that you respect others and keep it relatively family-friendly.

Since tonight is opening night, I’m not sure what to expect or where the conversation will lead us! But, taking risks add to the adventure of life!

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.
~ Leo F. Buscaglia

And that is great place to begin the conversation. Share a time when you took a risk. What happened? Was it as risky as you thought initially?
