Janet from Joyful Jottings and Kim from Page After Page have both tagged me (oh, two-and-a-half weeks ago!) for the Bookworm Award meme. Here are the details:
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 two to five sentences following there. Pass this on to five blogging friends.
The following quote is from Richard Russo's Bridge of Sighs.
He preferred a baseball game, if there was one, some other sporting event, if there wasn't. He gave me to understand that professional wrestling was fake, but this in no way diminished his appreciation of it. He wasn't much interested in the shows my mother liked—dramas like the Philco Television Playhouse—but offered no objection to her watching them, snoring peacefully in his armchair when he did.
I've only just started the book, but like all the others I've read by Russo, this has great potential!!
Thanks for the tag, ladies. I'm willing to bet most of you have already participated in this meme. If not, consider yourself tagged!
