I don’t know about you, but I find it virtually impossible to walk past a book shop without taking a snoop inside. Particularly second hand book shops. So many bargains and treasures can be found amongst the shelves! And charity shops. Charity shops are the ideal place to purchase books at a snippet of the recommended retail price, and all for a good cause.
Books are definitely one of my passions in life. If you were to rummage inside my big white bag, you will always find a book buried inside its contents. If you were to make your way into my bedroom, you will see my shelves are forever over-flowing with books. On the last count, I had 23 books for my future reading material, as I simply can’t resist a book shop.
Maybe one day my reading will over take my obsession of collecting books. But until then, I shall carry on with my latest escape ‘The way I found her’ by Rose Tremain, which is today's tag subject. (For anyone who is remotely interested, the book is set in Paris and narrated through the eyes of a precocious thirteen year old, whose mother is a translator for a Russian novelist.)
Today's tag is from my friend http://ladelirante.blogspot.com/
and the rules are below:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
These are my three sentences:
Alice was about to get up. She was going to put the music on again, but I stopped her. Then I said: ‘I think Grigory Panin captured her and made her go back to Russia with him.’
These sentences probably mean as little to you as they do to me. I have not yet reached P.123, so I do not have the faintest idea who Gregory Panin is. I am slightly curious though. Hence the title of the post - Who is Gregory Panin?
Is he a goody or is he a baddy? Will he bring mystery and excitement into my life? Or horror and disillusion? Oh I must remember it's only a book!
What's on P.123 of your nearest book?
Picture of the day:
Books, glorious books.
