Welcome to Lakeside Musing.

In October 2008, I moved my reading journal to the internet and Lakeside Musing became my online home. I primarily talk about books - literary fiction, classics, nonfiction, and audiobooks - but also post about food, family, and our travels.

I'm officially a Florida resident now, but spend summer months at our home on a small lake in Central New York. I also enjoy spending time with our daughters in Manhattan.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Hi JoAnn, I love reading your blog and have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Here is a link if you want to take a look: http://charlottereadsclassics.wordpress.com/2012/05/10/excellent-blogs-for-your-reading-pleasure/ :)

    1. Thanks so much, Charlotte. I'll be right over...

  2. Hi JoAnn, what a great photo of you and the lake!

  3. Hi :)

    I see you're currently reading City on Fire. I would be really interested to hear your views on it because I reviewed this on my blog and didn't feel too strongly about it!

    It's a good book...but for the length of it, not much happens!

    Happy reading :)

    1. Megan - I just started City on Fire last night and really liked the first chapter. We'll see how the next 900 pages go. I'll come look for your review after I finish :)

  4. Oh, JoAnn, I love your banner with all the beautiful spinnakers! Thanks for stopping by my blog!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. These conversations are my favorite part of blogging. Please check back, I almost always respond to comments!
