105 Ways to Give a Book

Meme 123

This meme makes its way back here with a tag from Cats and Jammers:
  1. Pick up the nearest book.
  2. Open to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences... um, sentences six, seven and eight.
  5. Tag five people and post a comment to the blogger who tagged you.
Now, Janie from Sketchy Words — being an author and an illustrator of picture books — also gave us the PB version, which is to go to page 23 and just put down the text.

I had A Beginning, A Muddle, and an End: the Right Way to Write Writing, by Avi, at the Reference Desk with me, hoping for a chance to at least skim it during the quiet morning hours on Wednesday. No dice. But it was still with me when this meme came up, and it turned out to have a great few sentences to use. Now page 123 only has five sentences, since there is a picture at the top of the page. So I guess that I’ll continue on to the next page:
“That’s because even when you get to the top, you’re always below something.”

Avon looked down. “I have to admit, it does look as if there’s more down there than up here. Does that mean the higher you go, the less there is?”

“Avon, that’s what I’d call downright smart!”
Now I want to read it. Maybe during next week’s quiet morning hours.

I tag any five bloggers who would like me to come and visit them at their blogs. Anyone? Tell me in the comments if you’re playing.
