I'm sitting in my recliner, being rather bored, while my SuperToddler is dancing around the living room, being rather giddy, because she's watching Frosty the Snowman. So, while Frosty and little Karen the blonde-headed girl try to find some way to reach the North Pole, I randomly decided to introduce a new periodic feature on my blog called, "Do You Speak Quote?" The object here is to toss out one of my favorite book quotes at random and see if anyone can identify the book it's from. I warn you now, I offer no guarantees that these quotes will make a bit of sense, but they'll be fun. In that spirit, here's my first quote.
"Skies Am Shining Brother"

Ring any bells? Comments, please, if you have a guess. What the Hell! For the first comment I receive with the right answer, the commenter will get to take his/her pick from my small stash of very gently used giveaway books. (I'll send you the little list, and hopefully one will take your fancy.)
This quote is from the puzzle mystery, The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin, which is an awesome book, by-the-way, and one of my absolute favorites of all time. If you haven't read it, I recommend it; it's a quick read. And I promise I wasn't cheating and just picking four words at random out of the book; those four words, in exactly that order, appear just like that on the page. It was the first quote that went through my head, so I used it. Next time I post one of these, I'll try to choose something that actually follows the rules of English grammar and wild stuff like that.
