“Whaddya want?” Bookshelves?!

We are about to renew our lease for another three years and decided it was time to make a few changes.

Coincidentally, it is around the time of our birthdays too.

So when my partner insisted I say what I wanted this year, my response was none of the typical stuff…

No sirree! What did I want? What did I really want?

Bookshelves… (more…)

Teaser Tuesday (6 Aug 2013)

TeaserTuesdayTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read

Open to a random page

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Here’s mine for the week:

“You know the first time I talked about distance in miles, Anja assumed a mile wasn’t very far until I told her a Norweigian mile was equal to ten kilometers. In Canada, a mile is one point six kilometers.”

Pg. 248, Trolls Walk in Words by Randi Skjolden

PS This is a self-published novel by a friend and ex-colleague, based in Winnipeg, Canada. Her book is keeping me company in Jakarta, Indonesia!
