If anything could get me back into blogging, it is blogging about books! How could I almost forget such an auspicious occasion? Thankfully, I popped into fb today, and a school friend reminded me. So here we go…
National Book Week (Aug. 20th through Aug. 26)
The rules: Grab the closest book to you. Go to page 56. Copy the 5th sentence as your status (or blog).
“While the watch was being changed on the ramparts above, the sentry stamped once or twice and slapped his gloved hands on his upper arms for warmth, for it was the coldest hour of the night, and a little naphtha flare in the bracket beside him gave no heat.”
-Pg. 56, 5th sentence of The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman
(the length of this sentence alone probably explains why it is taking so much time for me to finish this book — LOL)
Now, it’s your turn. Feel free to guide me in the comments to your quote. And, happy reading!
