Page 15 of 5

Earlier this week, I came across this entertaining post on a friend's facebook timeline that comes from the blog of GD Falksen.

The responses were quite hilarious.  This was my answer:

 "By now the young are staring at you with fascinated horror, as if you're about to pull off one of your legs, revealing a green and mossy stump." 

                                                                                                             - Margaret Atwood's The Tent

After doing the exercise, I glanced over at the huge number of books in my bookshelf and realised how sad it is that I haven't picked most of them up.  For this reason, I've decided to do a Page 15 of 5 blog post where I've photographed page 15 of 5 of my books.

I think of it as an alternative blurb, an inside scoop, a random and honest impression of a book's content that will give me an idea as to whether I want to read more or not.

Page 15 of 5

1) Author Unknown, Scuba Diving Manual for South Africa
2)  Hume, Charlotte; The great big veg challenge
3) Griffin, Forrest; Be ready when the sh*t goes down
4) Riley, Andy; The book of bunny suicides
5) Rubin, Nadine & Temkin, Nikki; chic Jozi - the Jo'burg pocketbook

If you like what you read on any of these pages, go ahead and get the book!  If you there's a book you love, why not share its page 15 on instagram using #page15of5?
