She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.
A friend of mine (roommate/friend/old college hall mate/etc) does amazing critiques by the chapter of Memoirs of a Geisha (MoaG). She has spent years researching this aspect of the Japanese culture and gives an in depth look into this book.
Hey, everyone! The Book of the Month is Memoirs of a Geisha, which means I want to highlight it as much as possible. So what I want to do is have a promo post at the end of the month with all the blogs whose owners love Memoirs of a Geisha or post about the book often.
Everyone who enters:
Added to mass post of blogs (you all can talk to each other about how great it is?!)
Reblog or like this post (Like = 1 entry, reblog as many times you want entries for winning). Even if you don’t win, you’ll be part of a “follow forever” mass post promo.
You don’t have to have MoaG everywhere on your blog, but it would be nice for you to have it listed under a “favourite books” list or post a picture of the book or post a quote or your reaction to it or something that works for your blog so I can tell that you love it.
If your blog is themed MoaG then you obviously don’t have to do the above.
If you’re the winner, you have to give me your favourite quote and tell me your favourite part of the book!
Ends 27 October! Winner randomly picked through generator.
