You'll Never Find My Body

Blogger sis Genebei tagged me with what is called the Book Tag. The rules are:

1. Collect the book that you have most handy.

* There you go. Picture on the right. That's true crime. Copyright 2009. I was after the courtroom drama. Finished reading it three nights ago.

2. Turn to page 161.
* Alright, turn...

3. Find the 5th complete sentence.
* Found it.

4. Cite the sentence on your blog.
* "Vocals by the Beatles and the Bee Gees brought on the same nostalgic recollections."

5. Pass it on to 5 other victims (oops...bloggers)
* Here they are:

What a combination of vocals, I have not read the book yet.

As for me, I start so many books, then directly go to end. ;) One needs lot of patience to reach 161... ha ha ha!
Interesting tag, I may do it for a change. :)

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
