Book Blogger Hop #18

I am linking up with Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer for the Book Blogger Hop. And what is the Book Blogger Hop? Well according to the meme’s page:

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:

When reading a book, do you use a bookmark to mark your place in the book, or do you just fold over the top corner of the page? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

I generally use a bookmark, though if I can’t find one I will use anything {a strip of paper, the top of a cat treat package, a receipt, a picture, an advertisement, whatever} to mark my place. Folding over the the page is a serious no-no in my book and can inspire very severe reactions if someone does it to a book I own.

The Friday 56~ A Study in Charlotte

It’s time for another edition of The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Link up.

This week I chose to feature A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro.

A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes, #1)

“John H. Watson might have been many things– a doctor, a storyteller, and by most accounts a kind and decent man– but he clearly wasn’t a zoologist. There’s no such thing as a swamp adder. And the idea that Sherlock Holmes deduced its existence from a saucer of milk is ridiculous– snakes have zero interest in milk. They also can’t hear anything but vibrations, so they wouldn’t hear a whistle. But they do breathe, so a snake couldn’t survive in a locked safe.”
