I haven't done much reading this week. With the arrival of summer (finally!), I was hoping to be able to sit on my balcony and read in the sun, but my dog has had other ideas. She loves the sun as much as I do and has claimed the only seat that is outside for herself. That means that when I sit on it, she either stares me out until I move or jumps up on my lap, which does leave much room to read.
Anyway, from the few pages of 'The Maltese Falcon' that I have managed to read, here's this week's snippet:
Page 180 'Gutman flung a fat hand out at the boy's wrist, caught the wrist, and bore it and the gun down while Gutman's fat body was rising in haste from the rocking chair.'
'The Maltese Falcon' by Dashiell Hammett
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there. So far, I've bought my mum a card and made her a cup of tea and later, I'm taking her out for Sunday Lunch. It's a shame that the weather has clouded over for her special day.
Happy (Mothering) Sunday!
