I've been tagged!!!

But this time it was not that embarrassing tag website thing that happened to me earlier in the week.

Jetihoja Academy tagged me for a cool book meme. I had no idea what that was until I visited her site. Here are the rules:

Book Meme

Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people.

First the book! I am sitting at my desk which happens to serve as my night table since a small night stand would not do with all the books I always have around. I have two piles at the moment, and my current read IS the one closest to me.

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Pg. 123, starting at the 5th sentence.....

A transaction in our fire company gave me some insight into their prevailing sentiments. It had been propos'd that we should encourage the scheme for building a battery by laying out the present stock, then about sixty pounds, in tickets of the lottery. By our rules, no money could be dispos'd of till the next meeting after the proposal.

Unfortunately I am not quite this far in the book, so I have no idea what is going on but now I look forward to getting there. I know I have not been asked but I am really enjoying this book; more so that I thought.

Enjoy ladies!


  1. Ok. This is kinda embarrassing. The stack of books closest to me at the moment are all photography software related, and tho they have 123+ pages, each 123rd page does NOT include more than 5 sentences. So, on to my next pile, which is all Latin books. Too boring for this meme. So on to my next closest pile. Aah, better. The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White.
    "All day long, the Swan Boats circled the lake, carrying their load of happy people, many of them children. Louis played his trumpet as he had never played it before. He liked the job."
    Hmph, that's kinda boring, too. Maybe I should check Wheelocks?!??
    Happy Saturday to you :-)

  2. I finally did it! I like stuff like this. Thanks for tagging me.

    I hope you have a great week! See you for WW!
