A Twist on Tagging

In a refreshing alternative to the usual rules of getting tagged, my friend Kim asked me to open the book I'm currently reading, flip to page 123, read the first five sentences and then post the next three sentences.

I thought this was especially fun, as I always love to see what other people are reading... Here's mine from Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen:

There's a shuffling, and someone shushing someone.
"What is it?" calls August.
"Did Clive feed the cats?"

Now I'm to tag five more bloggers... Of course no pressure at all, but I'd love a peek inside the current reading material of Joanna, Jim, Abbey, Kelly and Uncle Beefy.

I've heard great things about that book. Enjoy it? What a fun tag.

Uncle Beefy said...

Ah yes, this is a very refreshing twist on things. And, yes, I will gladly oblige after "Eco Week" is through...Okey dokey?

Thanks for the "tag", Joslyn! :)

Joslyn, I am so dense that I just realized "Jim" was me! Clearly I should read more to exercise the brain. I started a wonderful book called Down the Nile, by a friend of a friend, Rosemary Mahoney, but my wife commandeered it. So now, I'm reading the book that's been on my nightstand for a year: The Stories of John Cheever:
"Miss James is here most of the time.
We're partners."
That was it, Clancy thought.
