Peek Inside a Book - I'm Just No Good at Rhyming

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

This week I read I'm Just No Good at Rhyming and Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-upsby Chris Harris and Illustrated by Lane Smith.



It Begins:

On Page 56: So this is from the page numbered 56, but it's not the 'real' page 56 cause this book has some issues with the page numbering. 

Verdict: Hilarious and I think I'm going to buy it, because it's one I want to pick up again and again.

It's Monday! What are you reading? October 23

So my plan is, each Monday to update anyone who reads this on what I'm currently reading and what I may have finished in the last week.

Peek Inside a Book - Dance Upon the Air

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

I just finished reading The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh. I really enjoyed it but when I got home from my book discussion Wednesday night I wanted a comfort read and not one of the 10 books currently checked out from the library. So I opened up the OverDrive App (great library service) and searched for what Nora Roberts titles were avaliable and ended up seeing that book 1 of the Three Sisters Island trilogy was free. I don't think I've re-read this series so it had to be checked out!

This week the book Dance Upon the Airby Nora Roberts caught my eye.

Peek Inside a Book - Origin

This week the book Origin by Dan Brown caught my eye.

It Begins: As the ancient cogwheel train clawed its way up the dizzying incline, Edmond Kirsch surveyed the jagged mountaintop above him. In the distance, built into the face of a sheer cliff, the massive stone monastery seemed to hang in space, as if magically fused to the vertical precipice. 

On Page 56: "You sat in that monastery's sacrosanct library and told a bishop that his entire belief system is delusional!" Langdon exclaimed. "Did you expect him to serve you tea and cake?"
Verdict: I'…
