This week I'm in Copenhagen, Denmark, and it's winter. A young boy who lived in the same apartment building as me recently fell off the roof and died (not a spoiler). The police have deemed it an accident and closed the case, but I'm not so sure. I've been trying to find out information about the boy's and his mother's past for clues as to what might have really happened.

Popin tagged me for gautami's I have been lazy, hence I make excuses meme, which asks us to share our excuses, serious or otherwise, for not reading. For the official rules, click on either link above. Here are mine, to be taken with a liberal grain of salt! ;)
*The books are packed into the shelves so tightly I risk breaking a fingernail trying to get one out!
*I can read later, right now I must blog!
*I forgot my book in the other room but it's too cold to get out of bed to go get it.
*Bailey wants me to (a)feed him, (b)pet him, (c)play with him, (d)all of the above.
*I'm allergic to paper. (Wouldn't that be sad if it were true?)
*My book doesn't match my outfit.
*I'll just rest my eyes for a minute ... zzz...
I'm not going to tag anyone but if you'd like an excuse to make some excuses, please feel free to grab it!
