BookWorm Award

 

I received a BookWorm Award and was tagged by Teddy from So Many Precious Books, So Little Time and Cindy from Cindys Love of Books.
Thanks a bunch Teddy and Cindy! :-)

Here are the rules:

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 book closest to me right now is To Seduce A Sinner by Elizabeth Hoyt.

“I don’t think he needs to use padding at all, do you?”
“Mmm,” Melisande murmured. Lord Vale’s shoulders were one of her favorite things about him, but her new husband’s physique didn’t seem quite the thing to discuss with her maid. She stepped out of her underskirts.”

I am tagging the following 5 blogs to play along and get this fun award:

Bermudaonion’s Weblog…Happy Birthday Kathy!!! :-)
J. Kaye’s Book Blog
The Savvy Reader
A Blog of Books
