Friday Memes 1/29

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Can you pass by a book store without stopping in? 

My Answer:
Yes, though used bookstores are harder to resist!

In an upstairs room as neglected as all the others, AJ Sullivan flicked the grime from a broad fireplace mantel, then rubbed his fingers on his jeans. Mahogany. Whoever built this place had used the best materials. But more than 150 years later, no one cared.

My Thoughts
An okay beginning. Not exactly attention grabbing but it does make you wonder why the house is so neglected.

Used bookstores & thrift stores are a great place to find cheap books.

I like the beginning - the fact the fireplace mantel is made of Mahogany tells me the house is a lot older and that whoever built it had some money - it does make me wonder why it's been empty so long. Here's my Friday meme
