Friday Linkups: Every Frenchman Has One
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 recommend a book to someone, do you also send that person your review?
No, not usually. If I'm speaking with someone in person I might tell them why I liked it but wouldn't follow up with a link. If I'm recommending a book on the blog I might include the link to my review in that post.
I never will forget the day I went to see a movie which you know all about if you've been watching television lately: Anthony Adverse. I won't mention the year I saw it, but it had just come out, and I was in it, and I was just nineteen.
I actually haven't seen Anthony Adverse though now I'll be looking for it! She goes on to talk about the discussion the two women behind her have about her without knowing she's there. What a strange experience that must have been!
"You know, I really am an American in Paris. When that enormous glass was presented to me I simply could not imagine what it was for. I'd never seen one before in all my life"
I feel for Olivia here. She's young, inexperienced, and hopelessly in over her head at a French dinner party where she really has no idea what the customs are. Here she's explaining herself to another dinner guest and I love how politely direct she is.
So what do you think? Keep reading?
