Friday Linkups: Henrietta Who?
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
If you see a book you like but see it is 400 or 500+ pages, will you still read it?
In theory, no. Length has never been a deciding factor on whether I'll read a book or not. However, since things have gotten a little out control over here in my TBR fort and I'm pretty sure NetGalley is trying to kill me I have noticed that I tend to avoid super long books. At least until I get things in better shape around here!
"Harry Ford was a postman. He was a postman of a vintage that is fast disappearing - that is to say he still did his delivery round on a bicycle."
I'm pretty sure this type of postman has completely disappeared by now. This isn't the most compelling beginning but in another couple of paragraphs Harry is going to make quite a discovery!
"He nodded. "Knowing you mother I should say a good reason," He hesitated. "She'd got all this worked out, hadn't she?"
"It rather looks like it. I...I don't know what to think.""
I'm just a few pages away from this one so I have a pretty good idea what's going on. If I was Henrietta I wouldn't know what to think either!
So what do you think? Keep reading?
