Group Post: Currently Reading


We continue working through the "A to Z Bookish Survey," as created by Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner with C for Currently Reading.  I also asked everyone to include the first two sentences of Chapter 3 of their current read.


 As The Crow Flies by Craig Johnson  " 'You could've told me that you knew him.' She banked the turns at ninety, and I was beginning to think this was just the way Lolo Long drove, kind of like A.J. Foyt."


The Time Machine by H.G. Wells  "I told some of you last Thursday of the principles of the Time Machine, and showed you the actual thing itself, incomplete in the workshop.  There it is now, a little travelworn, truly; and one of the ivory bars is cracked, and a brass rail bent, but the rest of it is sound enough."




Bright Lights, Big City by Jay McInerney "You see yourself as the kind of guy who appreciates a a quiet night at home with a good book.  A little Mozart on the speakers, a cup of cocoa on the arm of the chair, slippers on the feet."


Hamilton the Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy Mc Carter  "What did Hamilton do with his hands?  Did he smoke a pipe?"


A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snickett "Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can also tell you what kind of day you're going to have.  For instance, if you wake up to twittering birds, and find yourself in an enormous canopy bed, with a butler standing next to you holding a breakfast of freshly made muffins and hand-squeezed orange juice, you know that your day will be a splendid one."




Morning Star by Pierce Brown  "Blood beads where buzzing metal pinches my scalp.  Dirty blonde hair puddles onto the concrete as the Gray finishes scalping me with an electric razor."


So what about you?  What are you currently reading?  Share with us!

"Crazy Horse & Custer" Stephen E Ambrose
"The Black Hills, one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, rise up in the middle of the Northern great Plains. The highest point, Harney Peak, is slightly over 7,200 feet above sea level."
