Sunday Snippet

Do you remember on last week's 'Sunday Snippet', I mentioned that I had hayfever? Well, it turned out to be a little than that.

For the past week, I've been under the weather with a cold and sore throat. Not to look at the negative, being ill has meant that I have had plenty of time to read and I'm making good progress through Christopher Priest's novel 'The Prestige'. I'm still not sure if I am enjoying the novel as much as its film adaptation. There are a lot of unecessary details within the novel, which do not appear in the film. However, 'The Prestige' is still an interesting read.

Here's this week's snippet:

Page 126 - 'But now I return to that afternoon and evening of Clive Borden's visit to Caldlow House, and try to reconstruct what took place while we children played upstairs.'

'The Prestige'- Christopher Priest

Whatever you are doing, enjoy what's left of the weekend. The London Marathon is taking place as I type. I enjoy watching the fun runners negotiating the course wearing all sorts of crazy costumes in the name of charity, but it makes me tired just watching them.

Happy Sunday!

  1. Hope you feel better spangle! :-) I've recently heard the London Marathon is fun for the costumes. I don't think they aired it here (though seems like I missed it anyway. Darn)
