Friday Linkups - It Happened One Autumn
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:
Do you answer all the comments left on your blog?
I try but lately I haven't been doing very well. I'm hoping to get back on track soon and possibly start using disquis so that commentors will be notified of the answer.
Two young women stood at the threshold of the perfumery, one tugging impatiently at the arm of the other. "Do we have to go in there?" the smaller one was saying in a flat American accent, resisting as the other pulled her forcibly into the quietly lit shop.
I like that the heroine in this book is American as I've always been fascinated by the stories of the wealthy Americans who took their daughters to England to find a titled husband for them.
The 56: (Actually 156)
"Pardon," came Daisy's voice from nearby, "but I am going to take this opportunity to make use of the ...the... oh, whatever the polite world is for it, I have no idea. I will meet you at the entrance of the dining hall."
I can't imagine going from relative freedom and then suddenly being dropped into a world that has so much more structure and strict rules for how you should and shouldn't behave. I feel for Daisy here. She's trying to do what she's supposed to do but she's getting frustrated. Luckily her sense of humor keeps her from getting to stressed about it all.
So what do you think? Keep reading? How often do you reread?
