Warm up for doing taxes.

Sunday, April 24, 2005

I’ve seen this on a several blogs, so I scoffed it.

***Update: oops, my bad. Must give Maili her props. Guess I wasn't paying attention, but I see now that it's her blog post that started this fun exercise.


Directions:
1. Take first five novels from your bookshelf.
2. Book 1 -- first sentence
3. Book 2 -- last sentence on page 50
4. Book 3 -- second sentence on page 100
5. Book 4 -- next to the last sentence on page 150
6. Book 5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph.
8. Feel free to "cheat" to make it a better paragraph.
9. Name your sources
10.Post to your blog.

Since I have a stack of books here right beside me, (some read, some in the process of) I’ve used those, rather than schlepping down the hall to the bookshelf. Here’s my results:

Until the whole thing happened, I never believed the old line about how you should be careful what you wish for, because you might get it. I didn’t even realize it at the time, but as I began to shiver all over and weep like a baby, he wrapped his arms around and stroked my hair. “I’ve got a connection at another restaurant if you want me to ask about professional brands.” Sam would know where to go to get my knee treated in a timely Western fashion. His favorite sexual position is 69.


LOL. And I didn’t cheat. (that was the warm up part. ::snort::, that and hunting down bits info....)

1. Paranoia by Joseph Finder.

I have BAD GIRL on my TBR...did you enjoy it?

Jaye said...

I loved it!! Take it out of your TBR pile right now and read it. :-) I also read her LOVERBOY, which I liked also, but not as much. Unfortunately she hasn't written anymore contemp rom-suspense/mystery. All her other books are historical. I tried one, but it did quite hold my attention. But I'd buy another contemp/rom-susp from her in a heartbeat.

I have Lover Boy in the the pile too. *g* It was a 2-4-1 deal. lol OK, it's next up then. :)

Jaye said...

LOL. I got the same two-fer.

Her next mystery BAD KITTY is due out in 2006. :( I enjoyed LOVERBOY AND BAD GIRL, but I liked BAD GIRL more. :)

Jaye said...

Maili, Thank you!! I thought those books were a one shot deal, (look at the way they were packaged) and that they didn't sell well, so she couldn't get a contract for more. I really, really, like Bad Girl. Thank you, thank you for the heads up on Bad Kitty.
