Leap Year Book Challenge 2016

On Brona's Books I found this 'one day every fourth year' challenge.

Leap Year babies will tell you how special it is to be born on the 29th February.

To celebrate a once in 4 year event - go to page 29 of the book you're reading right now and copy the first sentence onto your blog or into my comments section. 

Here is the first sentence, on page 29, from The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel which I am now reading:

 His uncle beams, filled to the brim with pride and joy in his Gallic gewgaw.


  1. Nice...I got nothing for Top Ten Tuesday I'll use the Leap Day challenge.

    1. Great, thank you Joseph. The first line on p. 29 in my book was not very exciting in itself, but the further lines reveals more of the uncle's obsession with his automobile. We talk here about 1904, so quite a novelty at the time.

      Thank you for your comment(s) which made me find your blog!
