Bonnie tagged me with this simple game. Something even me, and avid meme avoider can handle!

Here are the instructions:

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

The book that was really in front of me was Baking Illustrated and page 123 had a lot of technical jargon about the science behind the natural fermentation that occurs during the retarding process in bagel making. I decided to cheat and picked up the book I just finished.

"'His killers live in this forest and we're hunting them down'?"
"Well..."
"Well, what?"

The book is Me & Emma by Elizabeth Flock. Emma just told a local boy a tale about her father's killers. Carrie never understood what really happened and is questioning her sister.

Here's a comment from the back of the book:
"Deftly capturing the hidden thoughts of an emotionally bereft child, Flock's haunting second novel, reminiscent of Kaye Gibbons' Ellen Foster and Dorothy Allison's Bastard Out of Carolina, is not soon forgotten." -Booklist.

You're all tagged, OK?

I can't wait to read this book. I loved Ellen Foster. Can't read everyone's tags.

Please extend my apologies to your readers. I meant to say can't wait to read everyone's tags.

Oh it seems bonnie is having the same kind of day I have had...lol

I like this meme, i will have to consider myself tagged! Soon, I will get to it...

I hope you have enjoyed your quiet weekend. A whole weekend alone sounds heavenly.

Are you still off on Mondays? I don't think your schedule has been the same recently, has it? If you are, have a good day off tomorrow. If not, then have a good day at work. I vote for the day off, if you have a choice. LOL

Hahaha...I will try it with the book I'm reading, but it's Stephen King and he's sometimes not quotable. LOL

I'll give it a shot!
