The Book Meme

Julie D. and Kevin P. Edgecomb both have tagged me (and so has Don), so I must respond!

Here are the rules:

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.

Bridge of Birds, by Barry Hughart:

“He slid half of the heel aside and came up with a couple of lockpicks, and then the swearing soldiers jerked him back to his feet. Li Kao managed to slip one of the tiny picks into my hands. ‘Ox, we can’t possibly escape from here,’ he whispered.”

I actually had a great deal of difficulty figuring out which book is closest to me at the moment. There were several almost equidistant from me.

I tag Joy, Enbrethiliel, Tim Jones, Dawn Eden (whose surgery is done — yay!), and Mike Aquilina.

    What do you do if 123 happens to be mostly graph and chart and you don’t have enough sentences on the page? Go backwards or forwards, or get the next nearest book?

  2. Whichever you like. 🙂 This is for fun, that’s all.

    Btw, how are you doing, Brooks?
