My goodness – it’s Friday again. Time sure flies lately, but are we having fun? As long as there’s a book lying on your bedside table and a kindle in your bag, of course we are!
Meet me on Friday @ Friday 56 for a bit of Book Blogger Hop to kick-start the weekend with Book Beginnings.
Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. For this date, you will need the following:
- Grab a book (Yes, any book. But it might get you to your other Friday activities a bit quicker if you just grab the book you are currently reading)
- Turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader
- Find a sentence or two (your other Friday activities might determine this)
- Post it!
- Remember to post your link on Freda’s Voice and to visit the other guys in the linky.
- And don’t forget to list the title of the book and the author as well.
“All of those in agreement that the accused, Mack Lundy, is innocent of murder, please register your vote now.” The jurors all look down at the remotes in their hands and tap buttons. Four spinning green votes go up on the holoscreen.“And those who agree that he is guilty, please vote now.”Five red points on the board.
Imagine if that will be the future of jury duty!
Love it! I am almost done with the book, I’ll hologram my review (oh that’s not the right word? Sorry…. technosaurus here)
Let’s join Gilion @ Rose City Reader now for Book Beginnings. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.
Kate looks up from her holoscreen and blinks hard. How long has she been online? She only meant to look up a recipe for a quick dinner but has fallen into a rabbit hole quilled with xlinks. The open tab leaves all nipping for attention. Animated 4DHD in hypercolour floating before her – or as Seth calls it: Rainbow Crack.
Not everything in that opening paragraph is futuristic. We already fall down the rabbit hole when we just quickly want to look up a recipe. Or search for reviews. Or books.
As always, I will also be joining the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Ramblings of a coffee addicted writer. Every week they will pop a question that you need to answer. Post your answer to your blog, enter your post to the linky provided, make yourself a cup of coffee and go visit the other blogs in the list.
Today’s questions: If you read a book you ended up hating, would you stay away from future books by that author, or would you give them a second chance?
My Answer: Seeing that I am on jury duty here today: If the defendant is an author I’ve never read before, I will most probably press the red button and send him/her to eternal damnation.
If the defendant is an author that I have read before and enjoyed, I’ll most probably press the green button and give him/her a second chance.
Talk to me! – What’s your verdict? And what are you reading over the weekend?
