123 Book Tag

I was tagged by Heather.

Here are the rules:
  • Find the book closest to you with at least 123 pages.
  • Turn to page 123.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the next 3 sentences.
  • Tag 5 people.
I was sitting in my library when I read this. So, I figure pretty much any book is fair game. And, I'm quite sure you have no interest in what Library and Information Center Management has to say anyway.

So, from Pride and Prejudice:

"I am not likely to leave Kent for some time. Promise me, therefore, to come to Hunsford."

Elizabeth could not refuse, though she foresaw little pleasure in the visit.

"My father and Maria are to come to me in March, " added Charlotte, "and I hope you will consent to be of the party."

Nothing earth shattering, but if you know the movie or the book, you should be able to place the part.

On to tagging: Lisa from Harper Hoorahs, Lynn, Andi (I won't be expecting Jane Austen I assure you), Kayla, and EABS.

I could dust off my copy of Emma, but I won't...

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, by John Boyne.
'I don't normally wear my hair in curls,' said Gretel, jealous of the attention that her brother was getting.
'But why not?' asked the woman. 'It's so pretty that way.'

A book I would highly recommend!

It's already on my goodreads.com to-read list. I'll get there...eventually!

Thanks for playing.

I love Pride & Prejudice.

I participated in this particular challenge on one of my writers' loops a couple years ago. It was interesting to see what everyone was reading.

Sorry it took me so long to read this! What a fun thing to do--I'm posting on my blog right now. I debated between using Milk Glass Moon or The Audacity of Hope (which I'm ready to start)...
