Juggling life through a bi-polar lens. Sometimes up, sometimes down. Mostly trying to tread water in the middle. Creating a likeness to a normal life. Whatever "normal" is...

Scroll down to the previous post for full details on how to play this, but BASICALLY you go to page 52 of any book and then line 4. Give us the title, author, and the line that included line 4.

Here's mine!

52/4, week 2

The Cat Who Came In From The Cold
by Deric Longden

"I examined his undercarriage very closely as he padded over my face and then the leaves shook as he landed on the soft earth."

To tell us yours-
I WAS going to put in a 'Mr Linky' chart but couldn't get it to work!!!

The Moonlit Mind (Novella): A Tale of Suspense by Dean Koontz

She crosses the kitchen and warily peers into the downstairs hall.

'The Corpse In Oozak's Pond' by Charlotte MacLeod:

"You'll probably find an official ukase on your desk when you get back to the library."

It's half past seven, and you start school early today.

A Few Green Leaves by Barbara Pym:

"He would not have wanted to hurt her feelings, though she was not, in his opinion, a particularly sensitive person."

Angel & Kirby,
I enjoy Dean Koontz too. I am intrigued by your extract (extract? excerpt? Can never decide!)

I now have to look up what your book is about and what a/n ukase is!!!!!!

HORRAY! Luvbug has read this one and says it was good but he never finished it. He now wants to!

Ah Barbara Pym- I think I left a message on your blog a while about her! Must get round to the library in the new year....


THANK YOU for playing! I have really enjoyed reading your finds. ISn't it odd how this line can either reveal the atmosphere of the book, or be really surreal, as in some of the ones last week-?!!

For several years I read the book each Christmas a chapter a day like and advent calendar. Then for a few years life got in the way and time didn't permit.

This year I picked it up again and have read it as an advent calendar throughout December. I am glad I did :-)

I will blog about it on Christmas Eve if I have time.

I confess, I had to look up 'ukase' too! That was a new one on me!

Thank you for hosting this game, Helena. It really is fun to see everyone's 52/4s.

Happy reading..
