Friday 56: My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises

This blog meme happens every Friday, hosted by Freda’s Voice, where you share an excerpt of a book you’ve read.

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple.

I chose My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises. (The book is translated from Swedish and so has two different titles).

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

Library-a-thon

This is a readathon which is going on at the same time as the Read-o-Rama readathon and overlaps with the Because Dragons RAT so it runs from 11th June to 18th June. Is it a good idea to do this readathon as well? Probably not, but I have a lot of library books that have to go back by the 17th June so I might as well read them for a readathon.

Challenges 

1) Borrow and read a popular or backlist book you meant to read but never got around too.
2) Borrow and read a book by a popular author you’ve been curious to try or read more of.
3) Borrow and read a book you haven’t heard of before seeing it in the library.
4) Borrow and read a book recommended by the librarian.
5) Borrow and read a book you just feel like reading.
