Book Meme



I recently read Mary's Book Meme post and I consider myself tagged, so here goes:




The Rules:


1. Pick up the nearest boook 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.




So the nearest book was The Tassels Book, but it didn't have any words, just this gorgeous photo.


so I moved over to the bedside table where I found Pride and Prejudice.


I've had this book for years and always meant to read it, and I'm finally doing it! So, on page 123, the sixth sentence is:



" Mr. Collins, meanwhile, was meditating in solitude on what had passed. He thought too well of himself to comprehend on what motive his cousin could refuse him; and though his pride was hurt, he suffered in no other way. His regard for her was quite imaginary; and the possibility of her deserving her mother's reproach prevented his feeling any regret."



As you all know, I love books and have lots of books and wanted to select a different book, so you wouldn't know that I'm just now reading Pride and Prejudice for the first time, but it's true. So here I am, finally completing my High School English Literature assignment here Amongst The Oaks.

And if you like the idea of this meme, consider yourself tagged.

I slept with Brian on a whim---or maybe worse, to prove something to myself. To my almighty, insatiable ego.

Wow, this was from a book I recently started reading. I never read non-fiction, I would never choose this book except that another blogger with MS did a contest of sorts, I won a copy of the book, but by error of sorts, so I refused it but agreed to buy my own copy---she is a blogger who is a writer and her friend wrote the book. All that said, the sentence you made me read is pivitol to plot and now I know what I SHOULD NOT yet know! Drat! This is my reward! I came here to get info to highlight your blog on MY blog for tomorrow. Tsk Tsk Tsk LOL What is funnier---my post tonight I planned on writing about books people own and how much that tells you about them!!! Now I must think of something else. Drat and double drat! Fate. I am a big believer in fate.

Ha, Diane! You are not going to believe this. I slept with a Bryan on a whim--or maybe worse, to prove something to myself.

My goodness!
