Another challenge finished only with hours to spare! I had finished most of the books for this challenge long before but got stuck with the last book. Well, I have finished the challenge and am glad to have participated. 🙂
Ah finished! And that too just by the skin of teeth!
I participated under the “The Chubby Chunkster” participation level of the Chunkster Challenge 2012, the challenge was to read four books of adult literature (fiction or nonfiction) of 450 pages or more between January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012.
Last year was a tough one. I barely managed to finish this ‘chunky’ challenge. Here’s hoping 2013 will be better.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Link up at Freda’s site
Today’s sentence comes from Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope.
“The poor lecturer, as he seated himself, made some remark such as those he had been making for the last two days-for out of a full heart the mouth speaketh. But he spoke to an impatient listener. ‘D— the South Sea Islanders,’ said Mr. Sowerby. ‘You’ll have it all your own way in a few minutes, like a bull in a china-shop; but for Heaven’s sake let us have a little peace till that time comes.’ “
