Tagged, And It's About Books!!

Marji tagged me this morning:

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

All I can see are stacks upon stacks of sewing-related books... There's no way around it; I'm obsessed. Thanks, Marji, for clearing that up ;-)

I did manage to dig up one novel, "The Catcher In the Rye"

I read it some time ago- I grew up in Norway, so most classics were introduced to me in Norwegian. The English language is far superior in its richness and nuance. Well, the following is not exactly a testament to that, but Salinger's style is what made this book a classic. Okay, page 123, sentence 6, 7 and 8:

I sat down in the big chair, next to her, and offered her a cigarette. "I don't smoke," she said. She had a tiny little wheeny-whiny voice.

So now it's my honor to tag the following: Vicky, Berry B, Lindsay T, Deepika and Connie

And then back to sewing...


  1. Okay, I accept your tag. I will probably post this on Friday.

  2. Hey hey, thanks for the tag. I'll deal with it tomorrow. It's almost 11 pm here and I can hear books and bed calling ;o)
