I was getting ready to post in Book Beginnings and Friday 56.
And now you know why I'm a reviewer and not a poet. :)
I'm on the last of my Christmas books for the year (which is a good thing, right?). This week, it's Duck the Halls by Donna Andrews. It's the latest in her humorous Meg Langslow mysteries. I just hit page 56 tonight, but I'm enjoying it.
So, shall we get to it? Page one starts off with:
The buzzing noise woke me from an already restless sleep. In my dream, it was Christmas morning. We were opening presents and all the boxes I'd wrapped so neatly had suddenly become empty. Or worse, they contained odd, inappropriate objects.
And from page 56, we find:
"...very sorry," Riddick was saying. "But it's just not practical to remove the altar rail and the first few rows of pews just for the concert."
This is definitely helping me get in the Christmas spirit - pranks, murder, and all.
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas this week.
