Melinda over At Shore’s End offered up this fun meme.
Participation is simple: Pass this on to 5 blogging friends.
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or the most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that. The book closest to me is Circle of Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini. The passage I came to is this:
After checking the answering machine and the mail, she hurried downstairs to the basement. If they ever saved enough money for a larger house, Karen would insist upon a home with an extra above- ground room she could claim as her own, a quilting room that could double as a guest room. For now, a desk salvaged from a garage sale, a second hand sewing machine, and two stacks of milk crates for storage served as her quilt studio.
I’ve really enjoyed this Elm Creek Quilt series a lot and recommend it highly. SPOILER: There is no Sex, Violence or vulgar language, just clean historical intrigue!
I’m not tagging anyone specific either, but feel free to claim this award for yourself! My bloggy buddies are very special to me.
Oh, thanks for the great book recommendation! Now I want to read the Elm Creek series. <3
I did this one the other day, so much fun.
I love the Elm Creek series too, as a matter of fact I just picked up The Quilter’s Kitchen from the library, can’t wait to read, and hey, it’s got recipes LOL
If I did this, mine would be super boring! The closest book I had was two manuals. Anything of interest would be by the love seat, the recliner or even by the bed.
sounds fun I may try this…
I played along Tamy!!!
The book closest to me is “The Pet” by Charles L Grant. The passage I came to is this: “What he needed was a respite. What he needed was for Falcone and his teachers to cave in and stop the strike. Then they’d be off is back, and the board would be off his back, and the press and the mayor and the whole damned world would leave him alone to reacquaint himself with his son.”
