Feature & Follow - I'm this week's featured blog!

How exciting! Tribute Books Mama is this week's featured blog for the Feature & Follow Friday meme.

I've been participating in this meme on a weekly basis, so it is such an honor to be chosen. Thanks again to Alison at alisoncanread.com and Rachel at parajunkee.com. I really do appreciate your choosing me.

Please visit alisoncanread.com to see my answers to the featured blog interview.

Now on to this week's question:

Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2003 and 2004, and fell in love with the Elizabethan Gardens. There was a gazebo facing the bay that would be the ideal spot to spend a day lost in a good book. I thought that it would make an perfect reading location the moment I saw it. I think I was reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at the time. Ah, the reading memories!

  10. It's funny that you mentioned the Outer Banks...I'm heading there for a week on Sunday and I grew up not an hour north of there, so I spent a lot of time on those beaches as a kid. It's beautiful. :)
    Happy FF!

  15. How exciting for you that you got picked! I am an old follower! Thanks for all your recent comments on my blog. I always love hearing from you. The gazebo picture looks amazing. I don't read much on vacation though. I tend to hop from place to place too much for that.

  34. Congrats on being the featured blog!

    Elizabethan Gardens sounds like a lovely place to read. There's a spot in the Japanese Gardens not too far from me that has a bench across from a little waterfall, first time I saw it I wished I'd have brought a book. I would have stayed there all afternoon.
