Page 123 Meme

Saw this today at Ragdoll’s Tragic Right Hip. Sounds interesting and beats thinking about what to make for dinner.

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, scroll down to the 5th sentence.
3. Post the text of the next three sentences on your blog.
4. Name of the book and author.
5. Tag 3 people.

Beth — Doing the meme:

1. The books closest to me are a dictionary and a book of English idioms. Uh-uh. Not using those. Get up and go to the bookshelf.
2. Let the dog outside on my way back. I’m about to open the book. Now on page 123 and scrolling.
3. ”I read that alcohol suppresses normal sleep brain waves and impairs the quality and quantity of sleep, and I don’t care about this at all. Fuck it. Fucking-bloody.”
4. Sister Crazy by Emma Richler
5. Like Ragdoll, I’m not tagging anybody. (I was a recent tagger.) But have a try — it is interesting. Do it for yourself or post it on your blog for all to see.

oreneta - If you are reading BFG in Catalanese (sp.??) you are good...
If you're having trouble finding books there, e-mail me. I can send some to you. I have WAY too many in this house.
