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...

Middle of the week already? Again?!

This week I'm borrowing one of Dilly's dragon books:

 How to Train Your Dragon
by Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III,
translated from the Old Norse by
Cressida Cowell

"Most dragons that the Vikings used for hunting purposes were about the size of a Labrador dog."

I haven't seen the film, but the book is really funny :) The film must miss so many little details out- like for example, when a dragon speaks in the book it's written in an old wobbly gothic font!

Thanks to everyone who joins in with this, btw!

If you want to join in too, pick up any book, go to page 52, then go to the 4th line. Give us whatever sentences cross the 4th line. i.e. you may have to go back a bit or forward bit, but the 4th line is your guide!

Either put your finding on your blog and tell us in the comments to this post, or just write the entry itself in the comments. Simples!

Hello Helena and all.

My 52/4 this week is from 'Big Trouble' by Dave Barry:

"Our guy didn't 'walk' away," said Henry. "He more 'crawled' away when this other shooter comes running up like he's Geronimo, and then Geronimo gets jumped by the wife, and then the cops come."

I have seen the film of your book Helena.
It is excellent, certainly well worth watching as delightful and funny & heart warming.
Dilly will love it :)

We took Eldritch to see How to Train Your Dragon. He loved it!

52/4 from The Pig Plantagenet by Allen Andrews.
"Do you praise God in the beech?" asked Plantagenet.

Murder Past Due by Miranda James A Cat in the Stacks Mystery

"SHe left Peter for Godfrey?" This was beginning to sound like the story line of a soap opera.
