Meet me on Friday @ Friday 56 for a bit of Book Blogger Hop to kick-start the weekend with Book Beginnings.
- 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 the paperwork backed up because of snow, because of ice, because of too many days off over Christmas and New Year. Because of general lackadaisical attitudes. Because of illness caused by inebriation or cold. The inability of a person to come through from Glasgow. The person from Glasgow having got trapped up north. Or just the inconsideration of lots of lonely people dying at this time of year.“
Nope, I can’t tell you anything more – not because I don’t want to. I just don’t know anything more. Yet. Can’t wait to get reading this one today.
Note: Has anybody else read this one?
Every morning, at ten o’clock on the dot, Professor Liliencron steps out of his house, and what happens next is always the same: he draws in a deep breath of air, as if he were standing on a mountaintop in the Alps, drinking in the healthy climate. Next to him, ready and waiting, is his fox terrier.”
I know that I am going to have fun reading this one. I already like Professor Liliencron who’s subject is microscopy. “Anything bigger than ten thousandths of an inch is of no interest to me,” he is fond of saying. This is also how he explains his disinterest in Adolf Hitler. And politics. And the future. His opinion on these things is that they are “all too big”.
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.
I read on anything. If you hand me a papyrus scroll or a rock with writing carved onto/into it – I’ll read it. I’ve started using eReaders about 6 years ago. Mainly because printed books in South Africa are ridiculously expensive. No jokes. And in the area that I live, libraries are not sooo good either. And of course – the availability of books are also a problem. My husband (then fiance), bought me an iRiver eReader for my birthday and I’ve never looked back.
Actually I couldn’t look back at all. I couldn’t drag my eyes from the computer screen for months! Books books books books…. I was seriously clicking happy.
