Bookworm Award - Meme


Avisannschild at She Reads and Reads has given me the Bookworm Award! Thank you!

Here are the rules:Open the closest book to you—not your favourite 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.

I'm currently reading A Mercy by Toni Morrison, so it's the closest to me right now.

"Your son, John Jacob. He died after Sorrow came"
"Stay, Lina. Don't feed old misery. My baby died of fever."
"But Patrician sickened too and did not--"
"I said stay. That he died in my arms is enough without adding savage nonsense."

If you've been tagged before, sorry, and just ignore me if you’re not into this kind of thing. I hereby tag:

I LOVE Toni Morrison, but haven't read the one you quoted from Luanne.

Sorry, I just found this. Thanks and what a fun idea! It's almost 5:00 a.m. and I'm just going to bed so I'll get back to this ASAP. I already marked the spot in my book and I'll get it posted right away.
