Friday Quotes. August 12th

Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Rose City ReaderShare the opening quote from the book.
The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's VoiceFind a quote from page 56.

Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---


Title: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald, translated from Swedish by Alice Menzies

Book Beginnings:
Dear Sara, I hope you enjoy Louisa May Alcott's An Old Fashioned Girl. It's a charming story, though perhaps a touch more overtly moralizing than Little Women.
Friday 56:
She stood still a moment longer. Swaying. Laughing to herself as she swayed, she opened the bedroom door. She sank down on the bed and glanced around in amazement.
Comments: I just finished this fun and sweet story about friendship and books and community, and yes, love. The first quote is a letter written to Sara, a Swedish girl, by Amy, a bibliophile in Iowa. In the second quote, Sara finds Amy's books.

  4. That first quote reminded me of the books other than Little Women written by Louisa May Alcott, and how I've slowly been acquiring them for reread. I haven't added an Old Fashioned Girl, yet, however.

    Enjoy the book, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. I didn't care for it much; perhaps I was comparing it too much to A.J. Fikry. (which I loved!)
