Friday Fun! July 29

Friday Fun! July 29, 2011

*First Line Friday at A Few More Pages.
*The Friday 56 at Freda's Voice.
I just finished reading The Freak Observer by Blythe Woolston.  Here are two quotes:
I got up and went to school today because nobody said I couldn't. I have a little yellow bruise under my jaw. It's a nice piece of evidence for the physics of force. -Opening line
So that was how we spent our lives. We were a shiny bright machine, a family of planets circling our own little star. And then The Bony Guy took a sledgehammer to us. -p.56
Since I've read the book already I know what both of these quotes mean.  So let me say, that the book uses physics as the thread to pull the story along.


Follow Friday!                      

The Featured Blog this week is The Book Addicted Girl.  Congratulations!





Q. Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

 I guess I didn't step too far away from books since my T-Shirt is about them!  Ha!

This Friday's Question:

Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, 
who would you choose & why?
Duh! No brainer!  Elizabeth Bennet.  Why? Because she ends up with Mr. Darcy!

  13. Rats: I think my comment headed into the ether.
    Here's a recap, just in case it did:
    For Banned Books Week this year, a YouTube channel will be set up so we can read 2 min. segments from favorite banned books. I'm going to see if I can champion it at my school... You in?
    Also, I'm looking forward to your review of The Freak Observer because as much as the cover creeped me out, the writing drew me in!

  14. I love that you used "duh!" just like I did...thanks for visiting my bloggy!

  15. Haha, love your TGIF answer! Short, sweet, and you get that marriage proposal! *sigh* I have a tea towel with that declaration written on it ;)

  16. Wow, love that T shirt! I have read most of the books on it too! Must get one of those...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  17. AHH. It happened again. Something may be up with your site: it's dumped my comments twice today. But third time's the charm, so here goes.
    I'm ready to figure out the YouTube tech aspects if you're game to try.
    If you want to communicate off-line about this, try me at actionreaders at gmail dot com.

  18. That is an awesome t-shirt. I want one that says that.
