Friday Linkups: Little Women
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:
What is your favorite holiday beverage to drink while you're reading?
My favorite thing to drink while reading is tea - either green or herbal but if we're just thinking holiday drinks than I have to say my favorite is boiled custard. I love that stuff! Sipping it slowly while reading a great book is my favorite way to spend a December evening.
"Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.
I love this first line! I can just visualize the scene and feel the frustration.
"She caught up her knitting, which had dropped out of her hands, gave me a sharp look through her specs, and said, in her short way, 'Finish the chapter, and don't be impertinent, miss'."
Another line from Jo and this story made me laugh as she's recounting reading an entertaining novel to her aunt instead of the classic that the aunt had been wanting her to read.
So what do you think? Keep reading? Any childhood favorites that it seems like everyone has read that you missed?
