After yet another busy week, I'm hoping that the weekend brings some peace and quiet.
But before that...
BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice are the hosting sites for the Friday link ups, where we discover more books, and make friends. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.
Here's my Book Beginning...The recommendations to read/reread 1984 haven't stopped. And since this is one I missed in my school reading list, I thought it'd be fascinating. How is that iconic opening line? To think that it was first published in 1949!
Here's my page 56...
The covers I've shown were from my Audible version (the red Hitler-esque one) and the other was the one that popped up online whenever I looked. It's kind of creepy, with that blurry eye looking at you, don't you think? Which one do you prefer? This book has been published so much, there are plenty more covers to like/dislike.
What do you think? Worth a re-read?
Have a happy weekend, and here's hoping we both get a lot of reading done.
