This hop is hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Every week bloggers answer a question and then visit other blogs that are participating. This week's question is: You won a 5 minute shopping spree from your favorite book store! What will you grab?
A: Only 5 minutes? Geesh, I think I'll go running to the Literature section and just start grabbing books. Even though I have a wish list, I know that being pressured to buy books in 5 minutes will make me forget what I want. It happens to me even when I visit a store unprepared. So yes, I'll just grab whatever catches my attention and I'll grab as many books that I can carry. But the idea to get a shopping spree is plain exciting. Can we really have this?
The beginning:"The ward was never the same after the February afternoon when Zelda Fitzgerald stumbled into the psychiatric clinic with a stack of papers clutched to her chest, eyes darting this way and that, at once pushing from and pulling toward her husband like a spinning magnet." Page 56: "There was one soldier who looked out of place. It was his large, sad eyes she noticed first, the heavy fringe of lashes. He was pretty enough to be a woman."
The opening lines grabbed my attention. It made me wonder who Zelda was and why she was at a psychiatric clinic. I am hoping that I'll enjoy this book.
