WAYRW – Crimson Shore by Lincoln and Child


What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by It’s A Reading Thing. To participate, open the book you are currently reading to page 34 (or 34% in your ebook) and answer these three questions.

The Questions are:
1. What’s the name of your current read?

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a complete sentence. (or two!)

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

Now for my answers this week…

1. Crimson Shore by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child 
Crimson Shore (Agent Pendergast, #15)
Agent Pendergast #15 – thanks to Kristi over at the Hidden Staircase blog for letting me know this one was available on NetGalley! This is one of my all-time favorite series.

2. “Please take care to park within the lines,” said Constance to the young man she had recruited to drive the car the length of town. He’d been gawking at the car while she stood there, wondering what to do, and she had offered to let him drive it. He had leapt at the chance. Only once he was in the car had she noticed he smelled like fish.

3. This installment in the Pendergast series takes place in a small coastal town in Massachusetts. Except for the nasty police chief, I don’t think I would mind living there.

Now how about you? What are you reading this Wednesday? Be sure to leave a link to your own post if you’ve done one!

  1. I just finished “Conveniently Wed” by Angel Moore.
    “In the future we need to talk about things like this before they happen. And why are they calling you Mr. Tucker?” Daisy almost sounded like she was scolding Tucker.
    I don’t think I’d like to live in the time and place of the book. Times were hard and it took hard work to grow cotton in Texas. I did enjoy the book and will probably read it again.

  2. 1) A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

    2) Marley’s Ghost bothered him exceedingly. Every time he resolved within himself, after mature inquiry, that it was all a dream, his mind flew back again, like a strong spring released, to its first position, and presented the same problem to be worked all through, “Was it a dream or not?”

    3) I would live there if I were of the middle class to upper middle class. I won’t say I’d be among the well to do as I don’t imagine I’d ever be amongst that lot no matter when I live. There is a charm in this era, even though Dickens does a good job of showing us it’s harsh side as well.

    I have read A Christmas Carol most every Christmas since 1971. My Mom and I took a trip to England that summer and went to The Old Curiosity Shop while in London. I bought a leatherette bound book that has all – or at least the better known – of Dickens’ Christmas stories in it and I read it from that book. My favorite movie version of A Christmas Carol is the one from 1984 starring George C. Scott as Scrooge. I also really like Dickens’ Christmas story The Haunted Man. It isn’t as well known as A Christmas Carol, but I think it is as good a story. I’ll probably read that when I finish A Christmas Carol.

      1. We tried reading it to our kids (now in their 30s hehehe) and they couldn’t get into it. At least they had the George C. Scott movie to watch, which was a good thing since it’s pretty accurate. 😉

  3. Current Read: Wind In The Willows- Kenneth Grahame
    Illustrated by Paul Bransom

    Page 34: “Finest house on the whole river,” cried Toad boisterously. “Or anywhere else, for that matter,” he could not help himself from adding.

    Live a Life within the story? Oh yes indeed I would because

    “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
    ― Kenneth Grahame,

    Great fun this morning. Thank you.

      1. Oh I read it every year at Christmas. My children have loved it, my grandchildren, and it is a genuine old friend of the family who is visited every year during the holidays.
