He’s from 1892 England, she’s in a small library in 2017. And that’s just the start of
their troubles.
Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She’d come only to find a librarian for her Gram’s library, a custodian for the collection of mysterious books she’d promised to protect. On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique
novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.
When the last page is read he’s gone and Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages…
 ANNNNDDDDDD!!!!!

The Librarian excerpt
© Christy Sloat
I bent down on my hands and knees and felt along the floor hoping not to touch anything gross. My hands grazed something odd. I felt along its edges. It was hard and didn’t seem to belong there. Now my curiosity had me crouching in the dark trying to figure out what
this was. Finally I found the flashlight and clicked it on. Focusing the light, I saw the odd thing sticking up like a broken piano key. It was a floorboard upended. I pushed it to get it back into place, but all that did was make it fly up further and then completely out of the floor.
 
“Well, that’s just great,” I told myself.
I was here in the dark talking to myself. I dared to take a look into the floor, hoping not to find a rat family living inside or a web housing a large spider. I did find something, but it wasn’t sinister; it was a set of books in a case covered in plastic wrap. Reaching
in, I pulled them out. The dust on it was at least three inches thick. This must be the special book collection Gram told me to read and to keep safe. Anything that was precious to her, she hid—like the money I found pinned to her clothing in her closet, or the other jewelry she had taped to the back of her dresser.
 
I brushed the dust off and opened the plastic to find four books inside. They were pretty good in size and looked to be in great condition. They didn’t have traditional covers that you’d see in a bookstore. Instead they were covered in a thick material to keep the books
clean and the binding solid. I pulled the first book from the case and placed the others back into the hole. Covering it back with the loose board was easier than taking it out. I held the book close, and instead of going upstairs I went to my book nook. I had just washed the blankets the day before. Cozied up in the nook, I stared out the window one last time before opening the book. I decided I would only read for a little while before going up to bed. Gram did want me to read them after all.
I opened the first page to the title page; it was blank. I flipped the page and snuggled deeper into the blankets preparing to read the first chapter and that’s when things changed.

Last week…

Being a newbie blogger, i think its a sin to abandon your blog.. ^_^

I tried posting from home, but u see that cute kid in the above pic.. she loves gadgets (like, big time LOVES!!) and if she sees anything remotely to having a screen (even a calculator) she MUST have it. And in a desperate attempt to save my laptop from her, i HAD to hide away from blog-o-sphere.. 😦

The hill station in that pic is Kodaikanal, an awesome alternative from hot hot Chennai.. But blame my bad luck, the weather was extremely cold for me (the kid roamed in adam nd eve costume, but me  wrapped in layers *sheepish grin*) and so we couldn’t go out. We stayed indoors and all i could click was the view from the window, that kept changing every minute coz of the mist…

I read some reviews for Bankster, and i bought it online  along with Judy Balan’s first book, Two fates, and 2 more books. On the way home, I started reading Two fates, and its soooo Funny so far… i luurrvee it!! And, oh yes, i finally finished The Krishna Key last week, and i’l review it in my next post. Nishita di of Nishita’s rants and raves is hosting a giveaway of one of my fav authors, Sophie Kinsella’s “The wedding night”, and this is gonna be the  first giveaway i’m participating. Hope luck is on my side >:)

Another kind blogger Reema Sahay, invited me for her giveaway, but unfortunately the rules are u have to like her Facebook page and i deactivated mine few weeks back 😦 I envy whoever gets that book 😛

Apart from playing with the kid and eating mom-made food, my days at home were literally glued to the pinterest app on my ipod (when my niece is busy not noticing what i have in my hand) ohhh i love Pinterest…

pinterest love

Pretty awesome it is… there was this panoramic camera ball i came across there. if you throw it in the air, it takes a pic out of its 36 cameras and you can view the panoramic pic in your computer.. B-)

Altogether my week was wonderful, apart from the little fight i had with mom.. I hope my tomorrow (Training!!!) starts well 🙂
