Book meme

Here is an interesting and fun meme that I found as I was cruising my favorite blogs.

These are the rules:

  1. Look up page 123 in the nearest book to you at the time.
  2. Find the fifth sentence and write it down.
  3. Then write down the three sentences that follow.
  4. Tag other bloggers.

I wasn’t specifically “tagged” by Two Write Hands to participate. I wasn’t specifically excluded either though!

The book nearest to me, that is not a textbook or a manual, is Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah (no relation to me, as far as I know). I don’t remember when I got it, but I had to wipe a thick layer of dust off of the cover, and the bookmark is at page 114. Damned ADHD.

“I think that is admirable, sir. I wish we had religious tolerance in China. Unfortunately, we only have barbaric intolerance. I hate to inconvenience the kitchen staff but it is against my religion to eat certain foods.”

Scintillating, isn’t it? I’ll have to start reading the book again to find out what that’s all about.

What do you read (or halfway read)? Consider yourself tagged.


  1. I occasionally stop reading a book too. And then I have to start over because I’ve forgotten everything I previously read. When it happens, it’s very unlikely that I’ll finish the book! 🙂
