I've been tagged...

This is a new one, from my girl Michelle over at My Semblance of Sanity. I've never seen one like this before, so this should be fun. Now we'll get to see what kinds of books you all have lying close by. Here's what I have to 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. Link back to the person who tagged you.


6. Tag five people.


Sounds easy enough...let's see what we've got...

A Party in the Jungle...cute, sparkly, but not 123 (or more) pages long.

Mmm....Cashew Chicken Takeout recipe..."It's What's for Dinner"

The instruction book for an infrared heater we don't even have...note to self, "Give book back to Al."

Puckey's pop-up dinosaur book. Grammy got that for her for Christmas, because she was going through her "I'm not a "_______", I'm a dinosaur!" phase. Cute book, but alas, also not 123 pages long. Shoot, I'm beginning to wonder if we even have any grown up books in this house...

Ah-HA! Here's a book! It's "A Light in the Window" by Jan Karon. Ande's aunt loaned me the first three books in this series (about Mitford) and I really liked them.

Okay, so page 123, 6th, 7th, & 8th sentences...

"So I got 'er this book so she can git t' know 'em and like 'em."

"Good thinking, pal."

They drew closer to the brightness of the fire.

Wow, it looks funny reading those sentences out of context. No one would ever even have a CLUE about what this book is about by reading that. How funny.

So, now I have to tag 5 people. This could be a challenge, since I may have already used up my "taggable friends" with the last time I got tagged...

Here's my list:

Amanda (You knew it was coming, right?!?! LOL)

Devin (Because my baby could beat up your baby...ha ha ha)

Jenny (Because you seem to be a good sport)

Susie (Because you have an interesting life)

Shelly (Because you have a great sense of humor)

So, I hope you all respond, because it's fun to see what other people are (or aren't) reading....

I'm in too...but will have to wait until I'm at home where there are books besides a thesaurus and a dictionary.
