Another Ramble… my final day as a criminal

Font Resizer


After this, I must clean up my act.  And today’s prize, I think people want it.  Bad.  It’s…well. I kind of want it myself.  But I can’t keep it.  This was the terms of the agreement.  I must give it away.  It’s the goods I swiped from Larissa Ione.

If you’d like your chance at winning, check out The Book Binge.

Also, please make sure you read the rules for entering…a few people have attempted to enter as ‘hosting bloggers’ who…well…weren’t.  Only six blogs attempted to hide me on my life of crime, and only those six bloggers can claim the ‘hosting blogger’ benefit. Anybody else who does it – those entries are deleted, as specified in the contest rules.

Now… onto the next ramble…

I love HelenKay Dimon. I think she’s just awesome.  And because I love her so, I’m making her book a Friday 56 sort of contest.

Only…with pictures!

What’s the Friday 56, you say?

Oh, here we go…

About the Friday 56

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence. (If you do it on your blog, you’re welcome to use a picture instead like I did)
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
  • Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Yes, LEAN ON ME was totally the closest because it was on my phone.  I’d just bought it.

And now I’m going to buy another copy.  It’s ebook only so if you’re not an ebook reader, you can either give it a shot for this…or…um, well not enter.  No other prize is offered.

Want it?


Here’s how to enter…just tell me whatever book is lying close at hand.  You can do the 56, or not. Up to you.  If you don’t have a book handy, either lying close or on your gadget, tell me what book you think is lying near your preferred reading place.  That works, too.

Remember, all contests here are subject to the rules of my website… entering any contest means you’re of the age of majority, you understand that I’ll post the winner’s name (probably by 11/10) to my site and you must check back to see if you’ve won…hint…sign up to have the blog emailed to you… it’s that little feedburner thing…or you can go here).  If you don’t claim the prize within two weeks, it’s forfeited. This is just a quick run-down.  For the rest of rules, please read them.  Entering means you’ve read them and agreed to them.

Okay… fire away!

    Currently reading Lori Foster ~ Run The Risk. Page 56 – 5th sentence “His hands settled on her shoulders; his scent settled around her.”

    The book I am currently reading is The Lily and The Sword by Sara Bennett…

    But her heart told her she lied.
    (Page 56. The Lily and The Sword by Sara Bennett.)

    And one sentence that I really like out of The Lily and The Sword is on page 240…

    Briefly she felt herself to be drowning in the darkness of his eyes, and then one of York’s church bells rang, loud and strident in the still, warm air, and the moment was gone.
    (Page 240. The Lily and The Sword by Sara Bennett)

    Yet she knew that if she leaned down, if she kissed the breath out of his lungs as she wanted him to do to her, they would have sex. LORD OF THE VAMPIRES by Gena Showalter.

    “Oh, that’s right. You were kicked out, weren’t you? What could you have possibly done that was so bad, they sealed your records? That’s like a dishonorable discharge, right?” – Kindling The Moon by Jenn Bennett

    Talon cut a menacing glare toward him before he softened his features. “I know this is hard for you to hear and I know you’re not going to believe me. But…” He hesitated as he visibly searched for words.

    “The most notorious of these regions, the Pleasure Quarters, actually abutted the Holy Precinct, a holdover from centuries past when some saint decreed that the fire in the blood and loins belonged to Kos Everburning as much as the fire of hearth and furnace.”

    Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone

    I’m reading Jayne Castle’s The Lost Night. Page 56 doesn’t have a fifth sentence, so I’m including the second and third.

    “He didn’t make any progress in that direction but he discovered that he could sit there, gazing into the fire and thinking about Rachel for the rest of the night. Which was pretty much what he did.”

    “Trey blinked and turned to look at him.” – Spellcaster 2.0 by Jonathan Maberry, from the anthology An Apple for the Creature.

    It’s so innocuous and really not captivating. I remember I picked this book up because of Ilona Andrews and still haven’t gotten the chance to read it 🙁
    LOL, the book below this book was a knitting book 😛
