Bookworm Award

bookworm_award

Marjorie tagged me for the Bookworm Award. The rules for this award are:

Open the book closest to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, and turn to page 56.  Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.  And pass the award on to five blogging friends.

I can never follow the rules :((   I have so many books that I cannot pick one and bore you with page 56 and the fifth sentence.  But…for those who are curious and wish to know what I read…here goes.

While I am an avid reader, I must admit I am not primarily reading anything at the moment.  However, I do have some books on my nightstand just waiting for me as the spirit moves.  So, depending on how I am feeling on any one night, I have at my fingertips, Scott Turow’s old one, “Presumed Innocent;”  Richard Paul Evans new one…”Grace;” Joseph LeMaitre’s, “French: How to Speak and Write It;” (I am always working on this one); Stanley Appelbaum’s “French Reader: A Dual Language Book” (a great way to read French and have the English translation immediately at hand) and Nora Roberts new Christmas one, “First Impressions.”  I have begun all of these except the Nora Roberts one.  I actually skip around and read each one depending on what mood I am in.  I bought Grace and First Impressions for the holiday season….I hope they are good holiday reads.

Here are some I just finished: 

Karen Armstrong’s, “History of God;” Paul Knitter’s, “Jesus and Other Names: Christian Mission and Global Responsibility;” Andrew Greeley’s, “The Bishop and the Beggar Girl of St. Germaine;” and “Country French Living” by Meredith Books.

I subscribe to a couple of quilting magazines, Marie Claire Idees French magazine, Nutrition Action Newsletter (upon the advice of Marjorie) and also receive Reader’s Digest.

So now, I would like to know what the following five friends are reading…Paddy’s Daughter, Maggy (even though you do not have a blog), Nanouanne, Miss 376, and Nicole at Le Passe-Temps.
