Friday Linkups: The Mystery of the Blue Train
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 Book Blogger Hop Question:
Do you have a book with a location you just HAD to visit after reading the book?
In terms of specific locations probably not though books have put coastal Maine and several other areas in the US on my one day list. At this point we're just not able to travel as much as I'd like to visit all the places I read about. I do tend to do the reverse - pick up a book because I love a specific location.
From the Beginning:
"It was close on midnight when a man crossed the Place de la Concorde. In spite of the handsome fur coat which garbed his meagre form, there was something essentially weak and paltry about him."
From page 56:
"Madness! Yes, Just that, madness! For the first time in her life she was swept away by emotion, swept away to the point of doing a thing which even she knew to be incredibly foolish and reckless. She was enough Van Aldin's daughter to realize her own folly, and level headed enough to condemn her own action."
So what do you think? Keep reading?
