Aye, he was doing it now, softening her resistance, making her yearn.
She reached for him, and in the same moment, he pulled away, leaving her hand raised in the shadows between them. His downward glance brought a chagrined smile to his face.
"I see I have moved too quickly."
"Nay," she said, snatching her hand back to the crumpled material at her breasts. "It was I."

-The Chalice and the Blade: Page 159; Glenna McReynolds

This book was the first gift I got from my first girlfriend. Not sure what the fact that its still in my bookshelf says about me. I guess I just prefer to hang on to the good things and discard the rest.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Tessa blinked. Had she imagined it? But no, there had been a flicker of movement - and now that she was closer, she saw that what was on the table was not so much a pile of fabric as fabric covering something - something approximately the size and shape of a human body. She stopped in her tracks. as Henry reached out, took hold of a corner of the fabric, and drew it away, revealing what lay underneath.

Um... so I guess I kill people?

She removes the pin from the heart, and puts the heart into the plastic sandwich bag. She wipes the blood from the door with a squirt of cleaning spray and a rub of paper towel, and she inserts the pin into her lapel, where the little white-faced August stares out at the cold world with his blind silver eyes and his grave silver lips. Naples. Now it comes back to me. I purchased the hatpin in Naples, from an old woman with one eye. She smoked a clay pipe. This was a long time ago.

SIGURD kvad:
«No er eg ferdig,
frod er eg vorten;
og buen eg er
bort å ride.
Lat hugen leite
og lenger fram sei
kva lagnadsluter
mitt liv skal hava.»

Side 159, "Gripes Spådom" i "Edda; Den eldre Edda og Den yngre Edda"

SIGURD says:
"Now I am done,
wiser I've become;
I am ready
to ride away.
Let memory serve
and future tell,
what fate
shall grant me."

Page 159, "Gripe's Propechy" in "Edda; The older Edda and The younger Edda"

It means that I am done with something, that I've become wiser, that I am ready to go away, and that I believe in fate?

The trial, furthermore, never addressed the central motive: why had Pacciani and his picnicking friends stolen those sex organs? Chief Inspector Giuttari, however, had already embarked on an investigation of this very question. And he had an answer: behind the Monster killings lay a satanic cult. This shadowy cabal of wealthy and powerful people, seemingly beyond reproach, who occupied the highest positions in society, business, law, and medicine, had hired Pacciani, Vanni, and Lotti to kill couples in order to obtain sex organs of girls for use as the obscene, blasphemous "wafer" in their black masses.

-The Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston with Mario Spezi.

Hah. Great passage, but I hope it doesn't say anything about me.

This book is a nonfiction account of a reporter's coverage of the "Monster of Florence" serial murders in Italy. It documents the case, and more importantly the Italian justice system's failings and absurdities. Great book. The Amanda Knox case, which has been in the news for several years, was handled by the same investigators who botched this case. It's a crazy story, and makes you feel really bad for the poor girl.

The apartment building was too quiet. Celty felt a creeping unease steal over her. That unease was amplified by a cleaning service van parked next to the building,

A pressional cleaner at a dump like this? Not likely...?

IndexOutOfRangeException

Error: Page 159 does not exist in the book I grabbed.

I guess that means I don't like to read books much.

His remaining time on the Ardent escaped him like wind passing through his fingers. Much sooner than he might have liked, Nicholas found himself surveying the emerald tufts of distant trees along the shoreline. They faded in and out of his sight with the slow rolling fog, giving him the uneasy sense that the pale, misty air was breathing around his shoulders. The scent of damp earth wove itself through the smell of the sea, settling heavy in his lungs.

"Children first become TV and video viewers in early infancy, as they are exposed to programs watched by parents and older siblings or to shows aimed at viewers not yet out diapers, such as the Baby Einstein products. About 40 percent of U.S. 3-month-olds watch regularly, a figure that rises to 90 percent at age 2, a period during which average viewing time increases from just under an hour to 1 1/2 hours a day (Zimmerman, Chirstakis, & Meltzoof, 2007). Although parents assume that babies learn from TV and videos, research indicates that they cannot take full advantage of them."



if u read all that, you are one of a kind .... apparently i'm an infant whose parents let me watch too much t.v.

From Don Quixote, by Cervantes. God, the paragraph takes up a page and a half:


"And that night he will take his leave of his lady the princess through the grillework at the window where she sleeps, which overlooks the garden, and through this grillework he has already spoken to her many times, their go-between and confidante being a lady-in-waiting greatly trusted by the princess. he will sigh, she will swoon, the lady-in-waiting will bring water, sorely troubled because morning is coming and, for the sake of her lady's honor, she does not wish them to be discovered. Finally the princess will regain consciousness and pass her white hands through he grillework to the knight, who will kiss them over and over again and bathe them in his tears. The two of them will agree on the manner in which they will keep each other informed of their fortunes and misfortunes, and the princess will beg him to tarry as little as possible; he will promise, making any vows; he will kiss her hands one more time and say goodbye with so much emotion that his life will almost come to an end. Then he goes to his room, throws himself on the bed, cannot sleep because of the pain of their parting, arises very early in the morning, goes to take his leave of the king, the queen, and the princess; they tell him, when he has bade farewell to the first two, that her highness the princess is indisposed and cannot receive visitors; the knight thinks it is because of the sorrow at his leaving, his heart wounded, and it is all he can do not to show clear signs of his suffering. The lady-in-waiting, their confidante, is present, and she will take note of everything and recount it all to her lady, who receives her in tears and tells her that one of her greatest griefs is not knowing who her knight is, or if he is of royal lineage; the lady-in-waiting assures her that the degree of courtesy, gallantry, and valor displayed by her knight can exist only in a royal and illustrious person; the suffering princess consoles herself with this; she attempts to find consolation so as not to appear in a bad light before her parents, and after two days she appears in public."


I suppose I am a hopeless romantic and a madman who believes that he is a great knight.

Thanks a bunches

Simply find a book, turn to page 159, and the first paragraph will tell you what kind of person you are. It can be any type of book you want it to be. Don't forget to put down the name of the book. Remember this is all in good fun.

"How are you planning to send a message in a way that doesn't lead directly back to you?" Amon said. "Here I'm worrying about you running into Micah and you're planning to stand up and wave at Lord Bayar and say 'Here I am!'"
"I'm not writing to Lord Bayar," Raisa growled.

Enjoy!!!


"face down on the ground. Then the glorious presence of the Lord appeared to them, and the Lord said to Moses, You and Aaron must take the staff and assemble the entire community. As the people watch, speak to the rock over there, and it will pour out its water. You will provide enough water from the rock to satisfy the whole community and their livestock." The Bible, Numbers 20: 6b-8. Ok. Rocks in my life.....give me your water lol. I slept with my Bible by accident last night. But I guess its a good thing because I didn't have any nightmares last night!

"There are plenty of things in life I don't understand- decaf coffee, fuzzy dice, and Ryan Seacrest, for starters. It's becoming obvious that I don't understand guys either. Why, I ask, do they bother to call girls if they're not going to listen?"

I stuttered, "Being... followed"
"Uh-huh", she replied, winding off the tissues still wrapped around my bloody hand and throwing them into a bin. "And you thought 'I know what! It'll be totally groovy to, like, go bleed out on someone else's time, yeah baby!"

If you make a mistake, you will learn from it. Just don't make the same mistake twice.

Besides, even if you find the person responsible for the mistake, I told my American friend, it is likely that he has been with the company for a while, and even if a replacement is put in his job, it won't necessarily make up for the loss of his knowledge and experience. And if he is new to your company, I said, well, a child's mistake does not have to be dealt with by disowning him. It is more important to try to get to the cause so that you can avoid the problem in the future.
