Elyza – Book Crossing [F]
After helping a relative move house today, I found myself bumming around under the beating Sun, and soon on the streets of Auckland City. The amount of rubbish on the road suggested the Santa parade [75th Anniversary] had already finished. Gutted, as I missed the Bike Parade earlier this year as well. More parades!!! Pass the petition!
Construction work had blocked off half of the Town Square, leading me to walk a direct path along the Town Hall Theatre building.
I went to sit on the steps into Aotea Square, and I found this book: [6:57PM]
Unfashionably outspoken, inconveniently rich, Elyza Leigh was a disaster in London high society. In despair she disguised herself as a boy, ran away – and fell into the arms of a devastating stranger who whirled her into the breathless gaiety of a Brighton Season. In return he asked her help in wooing the exquisite Corinna Mayfield. Elyza would have been delighted – had sh herself not already fallen in love with him…
Pretty cool huh? No less than a minute had the cleaners arrived; they would have biffed it for sure.
I don’t think I’ll get through reading it all by the time I start to get bored say, mid December; so I’ll post where I’m likely to leave this book when I’m done, ok. Of course I say that optimistically in the hopes that this book isn’t a tedious read.
Today’s affair reminded me of this:
A boy who needs a friend finds a world that needs a hero in a land beyond imagination!
I feel special! Bastian use to be my Total Annihilation/Unreal Tornament online name… Yeah I use to be cool. I also have the motion picture soundtrack and Limahl’s greatest hits on cassette tape… TMI huh?
UPDATE: Apparently this is the woman who left the Book to fate:
