Bodog of Parent, Teacher, Asshole (how can you not love a blog with that name?) tagged me for the 123 Book Meme. I’ve done this at my home site, but because I loves Bodog, I’m doing it again here.
1. Pick up the nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people and acknowledge who tagged you
As is my usual habit, I’m currently reading multiple books at the same time. The one on which I’m most intently focused, however, is the book I’m reading for The Dark and Stormy Book Club; Orson Scott Card’s Enchantment. I’m enjoying it far more than I expected I would, and I’m finding myself annoyed at the things in my life which are interfering with my reading (you know, things like eating and working and spending time with my family). Here, then, are the sixth, seventh, and eighth sentences on page 123 of the paperback edition of Card’s novel:
My Itzak, my Vanya, what is happening to you?
He was dressed in the robe of a medieval monk, and behind him loomed the figure of an old man in priests’ garb. Vanya moved his lips.
You all know how I feel about tagging*. Please consider yourselves encouraged to boost this meme for your own uses, and to let us know in the comments if you did.
* For those of you who may not know, I love BEING tagged, but I don’t like DOING the tagging. It seems rather hypocritical that I wouldn’t mind being tasked with something that I’m loath to obligate others to do, too, but there you have it.
