It must have taken armies of laborers, kneeling in the dirt and mud, countless years to place, replace, and repair each chiseled block of granite so that they formed the fanlike patterns over which they now rode. It amazed him: solid, extensive, and perfectly measured, the stone streets of Paris seemed as if they had always been there and would long outlast all those who trod on them.” Pg. 112

Benny and ShrimpI am happy to report that I finished up Club Dead by Charlaine Harris this morning at the gym, but only got a few pages in to today’s tease book, Benny and Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti.

“I used to sit on the bench for a little while after I’d done the grave, and finish thinking all my interrupted thoughts, hoping to find a loose end to grab onto, to keep me plodding on through the next day or two. If I don’t keep my mind on the job, there’s inevitably some little disaster and I have to spend an extra day sorting it out.” Pg. 5

Thanks to FSB Associates for sending me this book to read/review.

DraculaWith only a few days until Halloween, today I am teasing you with Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

As they sank into the darkness I felt a strange chill, and a lonely feeling came over me; but a cloak was thrown over my shoulders, and a rug across my knees, and the driver said in excellent German: – ‘The night is chill, mein Herr, and my master the Count bade me take all care of you. There is a flask of slivovitz [the plum brandy of the country] underneath the seat, if you require it.’ Pg. 15
