The Bookworm's Award

Hello All!

Lesa Holstine of http://lesasbookcritiques.blogspot.com/ has just awarded me The Bookworm's Award. Thank you, I consider this a great honor!

Along with the award, there are a few rules. Open the closest book to you—not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment—to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence as well as the next two to five sentences. Pass this on to five blogging friends.

The book closest to me is one I finished a few days ago but have yet to add to GoodReads, or anywhere else for that matter; it's Garrison Keillor's Homegrown Democrat. Here's the quote from page 58 (56 is blank, and 57 is one long sentence): "We sat in our bathing suits on the grass by the beach on the Mississippi, both of us pale, shade seekers, and she poured out her bitterness that Hubert, a true Democrat who fought the good fight for equal rights for Negroes, had been passed over in favor of the son of a crook."

And now I'm passing it on to those below and quoting Lesa: "So, I'm passing on the award to five people. Tag, you're it! And, if you're not into memes, here's an apology. Remember, you never have to pass one on, if you don't want to play.


Have fun! And if you're reading this, please feel free to look around at your own books and let me know what's going on on page 56 :)

Happy Reading!

I'll try to do this tomorrow. It serves me well because it gives me a chance to mention someone's book without reviewing it. I've decided not to review the books of people I know through blogland and it gets awkward. Thanks, Patti.
