It’s about Reading

I’ve been tagged and this is writing related, or more accurately, reading related. I like it!

The Rules:
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.

Closest book is Kathryn Cushman’s A Promise to Remember (on the cover the a isn’t capitalized, but I just COULDN’T bring myself to type it that way. 😀 )

Here are sentences 6-8 from p. 123:

“Honestly, Christi.”
“The way you worded that. [And for free, one more] It sounded like you’re more concerned about the trip to New York than Scott’s life.”

Hmmm. Who to tag? [Such power … such a rush … such fear of being ignored. 😮 LOL]

Nicole, Julie Carobini, Wayne Thomas Batson, Michael Heald, Valerie Comer – you all have been TAGGED.

How’s that for an eclectic group?

By the way, I just posted a review of George Bryan Polivka‘s The Battle for Vast Dominion over at Speculative Faith, so if you want to read a real post ( 😉 ) click on over there.

  1. Eclectic indeed! I had skated on this one until you nabbed me, Becky. 🙂 I’ll do it right here, right now, with the book I just finished by Susan Meissner, Blue Heart Blessed. (Review up over at my blog for anyone interested.) Just for you.

    Page 123; sentences 6 through 8:

    “. . . It’s such a nice afternoon. I think I’ll just sit here for a little while and enjoy it.”
    “Okay, then.” [Bonus sentence: He stands, hesitates, and then leans over to give me a peck on the other cheek.]


  2. Becky,
    Thanks for playing! I’ve never done this before, so I’m getting a kick out of it!



  3. Nicole, thanks for joining right in. I like this one because it’s writing/reading related (gets authors/books mentioned) and it’s short! 😉

    I agree, Kim, they are a kick to follow. It’s interesting to see what books different people have near at hand!



  4. Hey Becky, My post is up, as are several more in the trail…;))


  5. Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams:
    “That was troubling. The birds he had sent to Doctor Morgenes had returned as well, but that, althought disappointing, was less worrisome than Ookequk’s silence, since Morgenes had said iin his last note that he might not be able to communicate for some while. Neither had his messages been answered by the witch woman who lived in Aldeheorte Forest, or by his friend in Nabban.”

    I hereby tag: Christopher Hopper, Michelle Black, Amy Browning, James Somers, and Gene Curtis.
