Page 123 Meme

Jumping on the bandwagon

Tagged by The Barefoot Cobbler...

The Page 123 Meme
1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, look down to the 5th sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Include the title and the author's name.
5. Tag 3 People.

(Fifth sentence or fifth line? I guess I'll go with sentence...)

"'Let them watch if they want to.'
'But it startled mother badly the other night. I think I'll just ask them not to, if I can catch them.'"

The book is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. And I have no idea what is going on in the above, as I am currently on page 83. Hmm.

Tagging: Newness of Life (although I feel like she's already done it...), Zuzu's Perch, and Stumbling Over Chaos.

HeHe. I've been rereading the books in my house for so long (mom budget) that I was totally tickled you didn't know what the scene was about. Let me know what you think of the book. I haven't heard of it.

Heh, I'll have to try that tomorrow. I'm at work and the closest book it UNIX for the MS-DOS User...

Great book - very under-read!

You didn't tag me, but this sounded fun, so I played anyway.....

How sad a state of affairs is it that I don't have a book within arms reach. Nothing but software manuals as far as the eye can see. YAWN!

BTW, please consider this my begging-for-signup for the 2007 UFO-a-long. I'm in desperate need of some sort of motivation.

I did a similar meme some months ago and I picked up the same book! How spooky is that - it's a wonderful book btw and I'm sure you'll love it

Wow, that is the book that is under my bed. I was just about to send it to my sister as I can't seem to get into it.

Hi - Sign me up for the UFO Resurrection Challenge! My January re-start project is a scarf of beautifully handpainted sportweight merino (Katsara Arts) which is maybe 3/4 done but which has been languishing for several months!!! No blog so I'll have to report back via the comments. Thanks for starting this! Kabira
