I am a WORM!

So I got awarded by this bookworm Award, thanks Gautami :-) and thanks S. Krishna [ I love her name! That's my FAV God in her name ;) ] and also Priya
It's my first AWARD on this blog - so everyone please congratulate me :D

Of course this award comes with a MEME too :D And that's again my FIRST MEME! LOL! this is a post of "firsts" innit ??
This is what you got to do -

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 out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following.

"All that remains is to fix the times. I suppose lunch will be over by two-thirty......Incidentally I'm not going into lunch myself".
"No, Sir?"
"No, I can't face that gang, I shall remain out there. Bring me some sandwiches and a half bot of the best."
"Very good, Sir."



ok, Now I thought I would do a quiz here! :D Yah !!

I want you guys to GUESS which book this is from :-) [ No! it is not on the right hand side bar :D]
Hints -
* this book is in the 1001 list of books to read before you die!
* it is a very fun, funny and lovely book :)
* the author's name [ not initials] starts with 'W'
* my fav character's name from this book starts with 'J'

That's it! Now let's start the guessing game! :)

Let's see how many of you have read this book :)


***** UPDATE ******

And here is the ANSWER to this QUIZ!
:D
Wodehouse PG is the Author - Damn cool guy! OMG! I can't keep the smile off my face, when I read the conversation between him and Jeeves!
And YES!! Jeeves is my favorite character :)

I will definitely pick up all other titles of this great great author! and Yes definitely time to announce the winner ... oops sorry - Winners -
XH and SUMA
Both of them are my real - cool - fabulous Friends :)

Congruuaatttsss to you too, of course there are NO gifts! :D Sorry about that ;)


Now, you can tell me, if you guys have read this? If not, read it! I swear you will enjoy it as much as I am enjoying it!

Remember,


I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.
