Page Number Game, Tuesday 10/29!

October 29, 2013 · 10 Comments

Welcome to a new day of the page number game!

Give me a page number in the comments and I will post you an excerpt from that page with an Intriguing or Interesting Bit.  Please restrict yourself to THREE entries per day (not per blog post).

If anyone stumbles on one of my top SIX favorite, non-spoilery pages, prizes will be given.

One of you has won something!

He wanted to apologize for being so silent and skittish the day before, but he wasn’t sure he was done being silent and skittish.

Torn bedsheets made good bandages, and there were plenty of linens to choose from.
The annoyance faded from Perrotte’s face.  Her eyes went wide, and she came forward as though pulled by an invisible rope.
Another group of knights had come to parley–and this time they had a prisoner.
Gabi said: 214!
She thought she might become quite good at smithing someday.

Sand woke, curled in the ashes of a great fireplace.

“He made me learn to read.  I studied every day with the village priest.  Papa intended for me to go to a university and study there.”

“Your father owes me a life.”

Some things don’t need to be mended.
Removing the skull from the chapel felt like a kind of sacrilege.
There had been a time when Sand had believed that Agnote was calm always.
Mr. Buchheit, please send me your mailing address!
