YES! I LOVE this fun tag from Janet at The Walrus Said. The assignment is thus:
1) Pick up the book nearest you
2) Open to page 123
3) Find the 5th sentence
4) Post the following 3 sentences
5) Tag five others
The book nearest me is one I found at an antiques store. It sits on my shelf with a small basket of flowers, just looking distinguished as aged books do. Julian Mortimer; A Brave Boy's Struggle for Home and Fortune by Harry Castlemon, copyright 1887. There's a handwritten note inside the front cover that reads: Edward C Wright, Jr., From Aunt Jack (yes, aunt), July 1902.
"I am ready to hear what you have to tell me about my parents. You say they are both alive?"
"Both of 'em," replied Sanders.
Ooh, intriguing, no?
