A Different kind of Meme

My friend Leslie over at known better as The pedalogue has tagged me to do a very different kind of meme. I'm not the deep reader that I think some of you are, except for the Bible and related books. But here goes.

Here are the rules:

1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.2. Open it to page 123.3. Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.4. Then invite 5 friends to do the same.

Many of you may have read the Mitford series about Father Tim Cavanaugh and his adventures in the town of Mitford. If you haven't go get the series, they are wonderful, I can't put them down, kind of books. After much groaning after the last book (which was supposedly "the last book"), Jan Karon has written a new book which will be the first in the Father Tim series. In this book he is called to his hometown in a mysterious note. So here goes.....

She was still beautiful. "Timothy." She held out her hand and he took it. "Thank you for coming." "Thank you for having me."

Now those were some short sentences! I can't wait to read this book....Jan Karon's style of writing is easy to read and she just knows how to write a story.

So, I'll tag:

What a fun meme. I will not pick up my book next time without checking out page 123. Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
