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: When you are out of town, do you still participate in weekly memes or do you have your post scheduled to appear on your blog and perhaps check back? Or do you not participate at all? (submitted by Elizabeth)
A: I don't really go out of town since I am too busy working and dancing. When I do have events though, I sometimes skip doing the weekly memes. I try to post every week and I make sure that my scheduled posts are all taken care of before my busiest days.
The beginning:" On March 21, 19--, as he raced down a path in the outlying hills of the Whale Back, a man lost his footing. His fall from the footholds cut into the rock high above the bay left him unconscious and terribly mutilated." Page 56:"The Old One, they called him. No one knew exactly how old he was. Not a very promising example for a barber either, with his greying stubble of a beard, never quite clean-shaved, in his yellowing undershirt, always with his hat on, even at noon."
I've had this book in my pile for years. I wonder if it's time that I finally pick it up and start reading it.
