Friday Linkups: Murder in the Mews
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:
Are the giveaways on your blog publisher-sponsored giveaways or giveaways of your own books?
I don't do a lot of giveaways because I worry about dropping the ball on it and never actually completing it but several of the blog tour companies I work with do giveaways where you just have to include the rafflecopter link so I do always include those.
The Beginning (from Dead Man's Mirror)
The flat was a modern one. The furnishings of the room were modern, too. The armchairs were squarely built, the upright chairs were angular. A modern writing table was set squarely in front of the window and at it sat a small elderly man.
I love that despite the short sparse sentences I still have a very clear idea of what this flat looks like!
The 56 (still from Dead Man's Mirror):
The Colonel dropped into his chair, shook his head, sighed and said:
"Terrible business, this, Riddle."
One of my favorite things about Agatha Christie's books is there's always a character who is so calmly resigned to whatever chaos is going around them and it's usually an old Colonel - normally one who has spent most of his life in India.
So what do you think? Keep reading?
