My friend Jennifer at , knows me well. She tagged/awarded me this cool Bookworm award. How could a bookworm not love this award? Thank you Jennifer.
So here's how it goes. And, I'm passing the love....
Pass this on to 5 blogging friends.
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 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that...
So, the closest book to me is Dorothea Benton Frank's Full of Grace. I read that this summer but its still laying here on my desk. Page 56, Sentences 5 thru about 11 I think:
"The very first thing that struck me about Sardinia was its landscape. As we circled low and around, preparing to land, I felt like I had been thrown back two thousand years. Huge juts of granite, smoothed by millenia of salt and wind, lurched upward from the earth. Some resembled animals and others looked like objects. The landscape was craggy and arid. I would not have been at all surprised to see herds of goats or sheep led by ancient bearded men in long homespun caftans and turbans navigating the scrub growth and sharp pitch of the hills. Sardinia was biblical, exactly as you would imagine the world looked when Abraham walked the earth."
Now to tag my reader friends...
Sheila at (cuz I KNOW what a reader she is)
It will be fun to see what books people have lying close by.

Sheila, this is a wonderful book. Even though the main character is Catholic and I am not, it helped clarify many questions about religion I was having at the time I read it.

Becky, I was right when I tagged you, I knew it would be either a DBF book or a devotional book or the Bible. I guess in a way, you almost covered them all.

Love you!
