Book Meme

This Meme was started by that smart cookie - Yvonne - It Had Better Be Good.

She has tagged the entire blogosphere with her book meme. A little bit interesting, don't you think! As we nose about in other people's lives, well their books to be exact!

The rules are simple:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and acknowledge who tagged you

I have two books at the side of my bed, which I am lying across just now!

Al Capone Does My Shirts
Gennifer Choldenko

Page 123. Sentence 6, 7 & 8

Every Monday I see Scout and them warming up on my way to the boat. I walk by without even looking.

On Alcatraz there's nothing to do, no one to do it with and nothing to look forward to either.

My next is:

Giorgio Locatelli
Made in Italy - Food & Stories

Page 123, fifth sentence:

They are very beautiful: dark brown with a white stripe or 'belt'(cinta); and are very agile because they were bred to live in the wild, and if they run at you, you have to move fast, because they really are quite scary.

So, what do you think he was talking about?

I'm not giving you the next three sentences.

It is too much fun to see what you come up with :P

I can't wait to read the posts :)

I now have to tag 5 people. So I am going to go for the five, I think, will also have a book beside their bed right now!

Julia at A Slice of Cherry Pie, who started up a book club for us over at her forum.

Lisa at Lisa's Kitchen who was curled up yesterday, reading a book.

Wendy at A Wee Bit of Cooking, who I know loves a good read.

Tadmack over at I Wish I Were Baking, who is a writer herself, but always, always has a big pile of books to read!

And lastly, Peter over at Kalofagas - Greek Food & Beyond. I am very interested to find out what he is reading, with a kind of nervous, fascination!


  1. Oh my goodness -- isn't Gennifer Choldenko a funny writer? Have you started Al Capone? I love her books. We'll drag you to Alcatraz when you visit the U.S. someday.

    Alllrighty. This meme. Because it's a book meme, I'll do it on my book blog. Stay tuned!

  2. And because it amused me:

    The second significant difference between functionalism and behaviorism, one that gives the former a substantially greater theoretical power, is in the way "input" and "output" are construed for mental states. For the behaviorist, input and output consist entirely of observable physical stimuls conditions and observable behavioral responses. As briefly noted earlier, the functionalist allows reference to other mental states in the characterization of a given mental state.

  3. Hi Tadmack, I have read Al Capone Does My Shirts. I have a hardback copy, which I am reading again. It's a lovely book. Funny and poignant!

    A visit to Alcatraz sounds good, especially after reading this book.

    I will look out for your meme :)

    Hey there Davimack, Now this is why I didn't ask you! I just knew you would be reading something that would make my brain fry!

  4. Okay, Holler, I did it -- this post contains other children's lit stuff, which may or may not interest you, but here's my meme.

    And D's hardly even seems like three sentences, does it. Sheesh.

  5. Thank you! Will get to it soon. :)

  6. Okay, just for you, it's a done deed.

  7. Hi Tadmack, you are right! I knew his reading would be long-winded :)

    Hi Yvonne, yes, I liked this one!

    Thanks Wendy, I look forward to see what you are reading!

    Thanks Lisa, I am off to have a look!

  8. I reckon he is talking about wild boar... But I could be wrong!!
