Book Worm Award

Thank you to Zetor over on Mog’s Blog who has given me this award.

Here are the rules:

Open the closest book to you, not your favourite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment. Turn to page 56…. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there. Then pass this lovely little award on to five other people…….

I can’t deny that I’m a book worm and I’m sitting at my desk surrounded by books (as usual). The one that is closest to me is After the Fine Weather by Michael Gilbert. It’s there because I’ve recently finished reading it and plan to write about it. The fifth sentence and the following five sentences are:

It was as if he were weighing her as a witness in a court of law.

“You saw the gun?”

“I saw the gun,” said Laura. “When I was getting away from the square I saw the man who had used it. He was slipping out of the theatre by a side door. And I not only saw him, but I recognised him.

That, by chance, is an important event in this book!

As most of the blogs I read are book blogs I can’t possibly single out just five other book worms. If you love to read as much as I do, please feel free to pick up the award and let me know. I love reading snippets from books others are reading.
