I haven't been to Borders or writing for about a week, maybe a week and a half. I can't remember, LOL, and that's highly unusual for me. (I usually go everyday.)
So when I went today, I had to go through the store and touch all the new books and see all the new displays. As I was up front checking out the new James Patterson book, (definitely caught my eye, since I've fallen in love with my share of imaginary characters) a little kid came in the front door, seemingly for the first time.
He stopped, his eyes got really big, and he got this huge, silly grin on his face.
"Whoa!" he said. "It's like, book city!"
I had to laugh, because that's the exact same feeling I get every time I walk into a book store.
Definitely a kid after my own heart.
I just love the bookstore. And since I was tagged by Edie and Karen, I'll do that page 123 thing with James Patterson's new book, which asks the question, "What if your imaginary friend from childhood was your one true love?"
Isn't that a cool premise?
Page 123, five sentences in, plus the next three. (Did I get that right? I'm not at home to check.)
" ... Come for a ride. I want to talk to you, Jane. I came all the way up here from the Village."
"I really don't know that we have anything to talk about, Hugh," I said, keeping my voice mild.
If you haven't done this, feel free, and I'll link to you here! I won't tag to anyone specifically, since I forget who's already played!
How's your week going? How was your weekend?
