Here are the “rules”:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
The nearest book laying around was "Savvy", a book I was sent from a publisher to review before publication. Sorry to say I haven't gotten to page 123 yet so I was interested in what I was going to find there.
So, when Will Junior asked me, point-to-point blank like a pellet from a BB gun, what made my family so special, I told him what my relations have been telling folk for generations when faced with questions that had to be answered. "We Beaumonts are just like other people, Will." I said the words, halting toneless from memory, like I was speaking the Pledge of Allegiance.
Not quite sure that quote would make you want to read the book, but kind of fun to go on a little word hunt inside a book.
As for tagging some people. While I can't say no, I am pretty good at not following the rules so instead of me tagging you, I'm going to let you tag yourself. So c'mon don't be a spoil sport. Let me know when your meme is posted so I can come see if your book would be something I want to read.
