Friday Meets - 13 May

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.

I've re-read an old classic this week. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-expury. No particular reason - maybe I was just contemplating if somewhere, we do not know where, a sheep that we never saw has (yes or no) eaten a rose.


The Little Prince




 Page 56:
"....if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world..."

Before you run of for 'hey hey hey it's Friday'   

Remember to join Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings. Share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading (or just take the one you grabbed for Friday 56) and share it. As well as your initial thoughts on the sentence and your first impressions of the book. Remember to also post your link to Rose City Reader and to share the others! If you use another book as the one used for Friday 56, remember to include the title and author.


I've started with a new book yesterday The Widow by Fiona Barton. I'm not really quite sure what is going on here yet. I know that Jean Taylor's husband, Glen, did something really terrible. Still don't know what the terrible deed was. Glen was hit by a bus (no really. No jokes here) and now he is dead. Sooooo Jean is The Widow - I guess.... Promise to keep you posted!

I can hear the sound of her crunching up the path. Heavy footed in high heels. She's almost at the door, hesitating and smoothing her hair out of her face. Nice outfit.


Book Blogger Hop

Today will be my first time 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 question:  Is there a reason why you chose Blogger over WordPress or a different platform?

My answer: Do you remember your favorite teacher in primary school? You honestly thought that teacher knows everything and he/she can provide a solution to anything? That is how I feel about Google. Google is my favorite teacher. Google knows everything. Google can provide a solution to anything - even blogging. I don't want to go to a different class. I learn enough here. This is my happy space.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend!!

  1. Great quotes. I loved The Little Prince. I tried both Blogger and Wordpress and decided that Blogger was easier for me to use. I am also a big Google fan. I am spotlighting The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye this week. Happy reading!

  3. I've found Blogger easier to navigate than Wordpress.

    1. I've actually never been on WordPress, so won't know the difference. Also not very curious to find out. Enjoy your weekend Donna!

  4. You have me curious about what it did. Is that the reason he's dead?

    1. Hi Sherry, the synopsis of your book sounds very spooky... Hope you enjoy it!

    2. I'm typing too quickly here Sherry - I don't know why Glen is dead yet (still only the how, but I do have my suspicions already).

  5. The 56 captured my interest...and your beginning...well, I read and LOVED The Widow. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

    Interesting Blogger Hop questions. I had Blogger at first, but now all of my sites are on Word Press. I just enjoy navigating them...most of the time. Sometimes they throw in a "fix" that complicates everything.

    But Blogger has done a thing or two like that as well.

    1. The Widow appears to be a quick read, so I hope to finish it tomorrow. So far it does keep my attention. I will have to check out WordPress - don't know anything about it! Wishing you a lovely weekend and thanks for all the support. It really helps a "newbie" to gain a bit of confidence. xoxo

  10. I hope to read The Widow. It does sound good. I like the teaser you shared from The Little Prince. I never actually read that one, but I remember seeing a movie version. Not that it counts. :-)

    I am most comfortable with Google too. I chose Blogger because that was my husband's platform.

    1. It's a sweet little story and a quick read. The Widow is worth the read. I don't agree that it is the "new" Gone Girl or Girl on the train, but still a good read.
