I’ll Never Forget The Day I Read A Book has so graciously given me the Bookworm Award which I am quite sure a host of you are familiar with having gotten it yourself.
Here are the rules:
the book closest 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.
I tracked down the book that I was given as a gift for my birthday last year and it’s sitting beside me as I am working on this post, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders by Neil Gaiman.
“Proof? I need no proof. I claim birth-right , and blood-right– and death-right!” So saying, he pulled both the swords down from the above fireplace, and passed one hilt first, to his younger brother. “Now guard you my brother– and may the best man win.” – from the story entitled Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves
Sounds intense. I love the title of the story.
Thanks again to Clark for the lovely award.
