Bookworm Award

I received a funny email from Me.... letting me know that I had been given the Bookworm Award! The rules are: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences...The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!!

The book that I am currently reading is When You Are Engulfed in Flames, by David Sedaris. (I absolutely love this author...this is my second time to read this book!) The text says... "Buy it." This is my sister Amy's advice in regard to everything, from a taxidermied horse head to a camouflage thong. "Just get it," she says. "You'll feel better." Eye something closely or pick it up for further inspection, and she'll move in to justify the cost. "It's not really that expensive, and, besides, won't you be getting a tax refund? Go on. Treat yourself."

Ok, so that's not the best example of what a great hilarious read this book is, but I had to follow the rules.

I would like to pass this award to Ms. Mindless, Cassy, Keith, Nathan, and Hollylynn. I can't wait to hear about what you're reading!
