Bookworm Award


I've been tagged by Sandra (thanks Sandra) and the rules for this award are:Pass this on to 5 blogging friends. Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.

There were only two recorded in the first half of the centuryy but nine between 1662 and 1684. This increase can be attributed to the general adoption of wigs by men with any social pretension.»
Now I'm going to tag:
Ana, at Prisma
Mari, at My Little Corner of the World
Linda, at Ivory Blossom
Have fun doing it!!!

Em algum recôndito compartimento de minha mente podia ouvir o
intrincado som de seu falatório; entretanto, o resto por minha consciência tinha passado a outro mundo, meu tão prezado universo privado..."
