A Bookworm Award!

My blogging friend, Kristen, passed the Bookworm Award to me! Kristen has been busy decorating homes for the holidays and sharing her beautiful work with us on her blog, http://kristenscreationsonline.blogspot.com/. She has some of the greatest ideas to decorate our homes.

Here's how it goes:
Pass this on to 5 blogging friends.
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.
Write out the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that...

Time-Kissed Destiny by Constance O'Day-Flannery
"My God!" she whispered aloud, as a shaking took over her body. "What just happened?"
With an unsteady hand, she grabbed for the towel lying on one of the built-in shelves and wrapped it around her wet hair. As she stood, staring at volumes of nautical books, Kate unconsciously fingered the gold medallion that hung from her neck.
I'd like to pass this award along to the following ladies:
This was fun, pass it on!
Diane
Just a note... For those of you who are interested, Constance O'Day-Flannery has written a number of books where characters travel back & forth through time. The subject has always fascinated me. I had a stack of her books, as well as some others that I need to re-home. I'm always trying to clear out what I now consider clutter, that I used to hold dear to my heart. I was once an avid reader, but my aging eyes seem to go wonky sometimes, so I don't read as much as I used to. My tastes have changed too. I was addicted to historical romances for many years, now I prefer books dealing with forensic medicine & crime scenes. I watch a lot of Dexter, NCIS, Bones, CSI & Law & Order type shows on TV too.
