A while ago I told you I took pictures for a secret project.
Today I can tell you what that was all about! I have a special guest over at my review blog today: Sparky Salamander. Sparky is the sidekick of Anya in the books Embers & Sparks by Laura Bickle, but in his daily life he helps out Laura with her writing among other things.
Sparky is telling all about one of his adventures and there's also a giveaway. In honor of his visit I decided to do a special post on this blog today. I took my well read copy of Embers into town and took pictures of me and the book at some of the places I would love to show Sparky and Laura if they ever visit Groningen.
First of all I'd show them the Martini Tower of course!
And the Martini Church.
And I'd show Sparky the dragon next to the Martini Tower.
Next I'd take Sparky and Laura to the local book store where they have Dark Oracle, a book that Laura also wrote, but under her pen name Alayna Williams. (I didn't take out my copy of Embers in the store, in case they would try to put it on the shelves to sell it.)
I know Laura loves to play card & board games. so I would also take them to see the local games store.
The A-Church is a must see building as well.
And finally on our way home for some hot chocolate and home made cake: the New Church.
Don't forget to go run over to the review blog to see Sparky's adventures and to enter the giveaway!
It turned out to be a book that was send to me by Selexyz as I had unlocked their Foursquare special.
Foursquare is a kind of game on your mobile phone where you can check in and earn points when you visit certain locations. Some locations have a so called Special. Selexyz' Special is that you get a free book when you visit one of their stores 10 times. Isn't that cool?
And this is the book they send me. It's called 'The King' and the story is set in Persia during the industrial revolution. The book sounds really interesting and the first chapter starts with cows!
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: - Grab your current read - Open to a random page - Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) - Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I got a zombie book in the mail today. Warm Bodies is a story about a zombie who falls in love. I'm usually not so fond of stories where zombies fall in love, but I've been told by Titania that this is a very good read, so I'll give it a try.
I'm part of a large family of pigs.
We all live with my owner in Groningen, the Netherlands.
I travel a lot with my owner and I post stories and pictures of my life and travels on my blog. I also have a blog where I post book reviews.
