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.
Four years ago today I came upon this little book meme doing the rounds on facebook. I decided to re-jig the idea for the 2016 leap year.
I hope you can join me.
My book for the 2016 Leap Year is Little Men by Louisa May Alcott.
My page 29 quote:
The last prank had been to give the hens bread soaked in rum, which made them tipsy and scandalised all the other fowls, for the respectable old biddies went staggering about, pecking and clucking in the most maudlin manner, while the family were convulsed with laughter at their antics, till Daisy took pity on them and shut them up in the hen-house to sleep off their intoxication.
