Mini-Challenge for Hour 11: "Take a picture of the place and/or book you are reading currently and post it somewhere – twitter, your blog, your choice. Leave a link in the linkie so I can check them out!"
The picture of a boat above — oops! — is not where I am, but where one of the characters is. He's in a boat escaping from Haiti, along with a bunch of other folks. The boat is probably bigger than this one I found online, but the sun is getting to the character. Me? I'm reading near the bookcases I showed you in my previous self-portrait.
