Friday Linkups: Christmas with Anne
It's Friday Linkup Time! I'm linking up with Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Question:
Do you write a review for every book you read or only review copies from publishers?
I review pretty much every book I read/listen. The main difference is that I publish the review book reviews as close to the review date as possible whereas I may store the review for a book I read just for fun for a week when I get behind.
The Beginning from "Matthew Insists on Puffed Sleeves"
"Matthew was having a bad ten minutes of it. He had come into the kitchen, in the the twilight of a cold, grey December evening, and had sat down in the wood-box corner to take off his heavy boots, unconscious of the fact that Anne and a bevy of her schoolmates were having a practice of "The Fairy Queen" in the sitting-room."
My thoughts: This excerpt is from one of my favorite scenes in the book Anne of Green Gables. I'm always thrilled to revisit it in this this story.
The 56 from "Aunt Cyrilla's Christmas Basket"
"The khaki boy said he hadn't tasted anything half so good since he left home. "They didn't give us pound cake in South Africa," he said"
So what do you think? Keep reading? Do you have any rereads for around the holiday season?
