It’s”Read Much?” Wednesday

Filed under: Uncategorized — namelessneed @ 2:52 pm

What Are You Reading Wednesdays can be a game almost better than  downward gazing into the lit, libraryesque machine in your lap hand.

To participate, open your current read to page 34 and answer the three questions listed below. If you have a blog, feel free to leave a link down in the comments so that others can visit and see your post. If you don’t, just leave a note with your answers.

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

2. Go to page 34 in your book  and share at least one complete sentence.

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

 

1)”The Lost Weekend” by the incredible & incredibly unknow Charles Jackson. Billy Wilder adapted it into an award winning film w/ Ray Miland. (The author was NOT pleased with the results, felt it was dishonest.)

2)”The bar below was crowded.He walked through the long room toward the street, slowly, regarding the huddled drinkers in a manner detached and aloof. He was the spectator still, unseen– truly he might have been invisible. the figure out of mythology, so unmarked was his passage through the crowded room, his very presence amid all the festivity. Near the end, he stopped and looked at himself in the mirror over the bar through a gap between two men on bar-stools. He smoothed back his hair, then put his hat on and adjusted it carefully. He gave the effect a last approving look and went on.”

3) I’ve thought some of the same notions as the lead character, I have one foot on that island, and the other in the waves.
