"Apart from that, they were very different; some had tails and others not, some wore great beards and others had very round, smooth faces, big as pumpkins. There were long, pointed noses, and long, soft noses like small trunks, and great blobby noses. Several had single horns in the middle of their foreheads."

5. Link back to the person who tagged you.

Julie tagged me.

6. Tag five people.

Sarah F.





By the way - please do not be fooled! The only reason The Silver Chair is nearest to me is because I had to walk to the bookshelf and find the one on the end (closest to the computer desk). But it's actually across the living room, behind the couch, beyond the sewing table. It's not like it was "out lying around". Now that I think of it though - there's a Bible holding up the broken leg of Joshua's bassinet. AAHAHAHAH. I should have used that one. My point in this paragraph is to let you know I don't read C.S. Lewis or the Chronicles of Narnia. CoN are "fantasy-ish" and that type of book and I don't get along.


  1. Hey, they're super godly- you should love em! Narnia is a complete tribute to, biggest god fest in a british novel, EVER. No shame baby, no shame.


  2. Thanks for participating! I liked how you gave the details of where the book was and all that, too! Makes these kinds of things more fun to read.

    The pictures of the latte's from your above post are crazy - some barrista has WAY too much time on his/her hands!!

  3. OK, so I have no idea how this is supposed to work but books are involved so I'm just going to "comment" it because I can't stand not doing anything at all, even at this late hour when I should be sleeping.

    Nearest book
    "St. Mungo's Robin" by Pat McIntosh a historical murder mystery set in 14th century Scotland

    Page 123, sentances 5-7:
    "'Your sister's to lie at the castle?' said Nick Kennedy, pouring wine. 'Oh aye, the guest-hall they keep for visiting religious. Well, it saves your uncle having to fit her and her fold at Rottenrow."

    It would be an odd moment for me to not have a half dozen or so books within arms reach. This one was on the couch next to me along with "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, The Cat In the Hat and Richard Scary's The Early Bird.
