Book Meme

Here is a fun meme I found over at By Sun and Candlelight...

Book Meme


  1. Pick up the nearest book (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.
Well, the nearest book at this desk is a dictionary-but that wouldn't work... so this is from our read aloud:

"If we had tried to see what a dreadful muss we could make, things could have looked no worse. I think father told her to wait in the carriage, but we heard her cry: "Oh Mr. Stanton, let me see the dear children I'm to teach, and where I'm to work."
Hopped is the word. She hopped from the carriage and came hopping after father."
-Laddie by Gene Stratton-Porter (one of my all time favorite books)

So, I am going to tag OC Mom at An Orange County Sitcom, Dawn at Picking up Pebbles,
Daisy at Lesser Road Academy, Lisa at Koinonia Academy and then leave it open for anyone else who would like to play...
