Tagged. I'm it!

This is a second post for today. Please read the previous one (below) for updates on the family. This one is purely for fun. I've been tagged. Lois tagged me with a book meme. I don't usually do these, but this sounded intriguing.

Here's what you do. . .

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.

Then, I'll come see what you're reading. Like Lois, I'm picking people that I think are avid readers . . . we'll see what happens.

I'm tagging:

Judy, Joni, Beth, Jules, favorite brother-in-law, and Mark (my hubby). Get cracking, guys!

Here's what I found. (Remember, I'm not at my house). I went to the bookshelf in my parents' living room, closed my eyes, and pulled the first book I touched. Interesting procedure -- especially when you hear what book I touched. "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" is about a family whose lives are torn apart by a lie about a daughter born with Down syndrome in the early 60s. If you have not read this book, I give it my highest recommendation. However, I will warn you, it is hard to get through -- especially the first couple of chapters. But trust me, it's well worth it."

On page 125 (there is only a chapter heading on 123) the sentences are:

"Don't worry," Miss Throckmorton replied, "We'll take good care of him."

Miss Throckmorton was young, just out of school, dark-haired and wiry and enthusiastic. She wore a full skirt and sturdy flat sandals, and her eyes never left the groups of children playing on the field.



Happy reading!!!

What a fascinating tag! I love randomly flicking through books. Hope the drugs are kicking in and you are feeling a little better.

Gee I'd love to participate in the book thingie but Dr. Seuss books are only about twenty pages. Any other books that might make it were sold in a garage sale or given away. (Or are cookbooks!)

I posted this exact post at Beth's blog too... (getting sleeeeeepy!)

Huges,

Melly :)
