Friday Linkups: Alice in Wonderland
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 Blogger Hop Question:
Books, books, and more books. What other things do you love besides reading? Now I know that is a difficult question, but we can't read 24/7, right?
I don't suffer from a lack of things to do! Besides reading I have tons of TV shows I love - most of which fall into either crime or food categories. I also love to garden and am excited every year when it's time to get my veggies in the ground. I've recently become obsessed with hiking and finding good trails to hike with the Tornado. I also love to cook and bake and enjoy hunting up and trying new recipes.
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations?"
I can just picture a little girl squirming around trying to entertain herself and being completely bored. I like his writing style already. It's so descriptive without being overly wordy.
It sounded an excellent plan, no doubt, and very neatly and simply arranged; the only difficulty was, that she had not the smallest idea how to set about it; and while she was peering about anxiously among the trees, a sharp bark just over her head made her look up in a great hurry.
Even though I'm not here yet I can guess what's going on since I'm familiar with the story. I'm still in love with the writing style as it does provide a really whimsical feel to the reading of the story.
So what do you think? Keep reading? Have you read this one and if so what did you think?
