33 words: Reading challenge



The sound of the saw is steady, competent, unhurried, stirring the dying
light so that at each stroke her face seems to wake a little into an expression
of listening and of waiting



As soon as I saw this weekends Trifecta Challenge, I knew what book to go to: William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. One of my favoritest books ever.

  6. Faulkner, I'm amazed he could say anything in 33 words. Just kidding. I am a Faulkner fan with all his characters.
