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!
