Jill over at Jill's Believe It Or Not has passed on this terrific Bookworm Award to me. Thank you very much Jill! I must confess that yes I am a bookworm and love, love, love to read. I always have a book going but unfortunately the only time I get to read is in the bathroom. ;o) Sometimes I will go into the bathroom, lock the door and sit on the side of the tub just to get in some reading time. Please don't give away my secret to my husband or the kiddos! :o) It is pretty much impossible to even get a glimpse of the newspaper around here let alone sit in a comfy chair and read. Maybe someday!
Anyway, the rules for this award are fun:
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 the 5Th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.
The closest book to me right now is sitting on the computer desk and is titled Just Shy of Harmony by Philip Gulley. I brought it home from my mom's house on Saturday. It is not the book I am currently reading but plan to start it as soon as I can. It is the second book in a series ~ the first being titled Home to Harmony. These books are about a young pastor and his family who come back to his hometown of Harmony to preach to the congregation he grew up in. The first book was very humorous and had a lot of great characters. I am eagerly anticipating reading this second one. Here is the fifth sentence from page 56:
"Sometimes when their hips are touching, the stirrings unsettle him and he'll slide away."
"Deena notices but isn't sure what to make of it. Wayne puzzles her. All the other men she ever dated had one thing on their minds. But not Wayne. Though she appreciated his manners, she does wonder just how much he likes her."
Okay ~ now to pass this fun award onto 5 blogging friends:

Sandi @ Life with Jessica
