First, Alhana made an open invitation and I considered it. Then Alessandra put my name in print, so I felt I must comply. :-D
Here are the rules:
1. Collect the book you have most handy.
2. Turn to page 161.
3. Find the 5th complete sentence.
4. Cite the sentence on your blog.
5. Pass it on to five other blog friends.
Out of all these books in my house, I had to find one that wasn't a children's book and that had more than 161 pages! The first adult book I glanced at was Esmeralda Santiago's Almost a Woman, so from that here is the sentence:
I thought one of her sons had been accused of killing somebody and silently prayed that it hadn't been Neftalí.
I love this book! I love the whole trilogy. (It's printed in English or Spanish. The Spanish one is entitled Casi Una Mujer. There's no excuse now. ) :-D
Where Have I Been? School is almost about to begin and I'm working diligently to finish projects, organize the new shop, clean my house - for real, and prepare for the new year. I promise a real post as soon as I can. I even have a new swap idea, but details about that later and after the current swaps have passed. Until then, I'll be checking in on your blogs!
