On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and 50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up and it is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. Then, for 50/50 Friday, every week there's a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts blogs.
This week I'm spotlighting one of my current read for review books, Life Seemed Good But... by Richard Bell. It's a collection of many short (some very short) dark, quirky, and strange stories - it's definitely for fans of Nothing Is Strange by Mike Russell. You can see my review of that anthology here.
What's past is prologue, mostly.
[From "Fuzzy Turtles"]
Egbert was famous for his proverbs; one was "If you stand too close to your reflection, you cannot see the full picture of who you are." My favorite was "Always keep your mouth closed when cleaning the toilet." (I used to have the full list, I'll look for it.) He could be very profound, as well as humorous.
50/50 Friday: Favorite Book Set In Winter/ Summer
Summer - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - I mean, Gatsby's summer parties!
Winter - Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) by Maggie Stiefvater - This wintery read was my first introduction to the wonderful Ms. Stiefvater.
