Friday Linkups - The God of the Hive
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:
In one sentence describe your passion for reading.
Reading is my constant.
A child is a burden, after a mile.
After two miles in the cold sea air, stumbling through the night up the side of a hill and down again, becoming all too aware of previously unnoticed burns and bruises and having already put on eight miles that night - half of it carrying a man on a stretcher - even a small, drowsy three-and-a-half-year-old becomes a strain.
This starts right after the previous book ends so I have a pretty good idea of what's going on here. Seriously though, even without the previous 8 miles carrying a guy on a stretcher carrying a 3 1/2 year old 2 miles would be pretty exhausting!
The the world exploded in a racket of tearing metal and crackling trees, the scream of three human voices, and an unbelievable confusion of sound and pain and turmoil as we tumbled end over end and fell crying into the dark.
Well that sounds ominous! I'm not quite here yet but it doesn't sound like things are going very well!
So what do you think? Keep reading?
