First up, the Book Blogger Hop! This week's question is:
What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
I would have to say the young adult paranormal genre. It's a whole genre I discovered while hopping around! I've dipped my feet into the genre -- but while I sort of enjoyed Twilight (it really went downhill), and enjoyed Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty (which too went downhill), I'm not quite even sure what the genre covers! I love Neil Gaiman's Coraline and The Graveyard Book - do these count as paranormal fantasy?
Friday 56, I just grabbed Freakonomics off the nearby shelf -- this is one really interesting read! (Hmmm, why haven't I reviewed this?)
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Add your (url) post below in Freda's Voice Linky.
The entire book answers very intriguing questions - linking two often very incongruous ideas. Page 56 falls in the chapter which asks: How is the Ku Klux Klan Like a Group of Real Estate Agents?
An interesting sentence:
By the 1920s, a revived Klan claimed 80 million members, including President Warren G. Harding, who reportedly took his Klan oath in the Green Room of the White House.Want to find out more? I guess you'll have to read the book! And with that, I wish you a wonderful weekend!
