How fun!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been tagged for a meme, and Heidi at Butterfly Mama gave me a fun one.

Here are the instructions:
-Grab the book closest to you
-Open to page 123
-Scroll down to the 5th sentence
-Post the text of next 3 sentences on your blog
-Name of the book and the author
-Tag 3 people

 Here’s what was sitting next to me on the couch: There Is No Me Without You by Melissa Faye Greene.

Here’s the 5th sentence and the next 3 after that: 

 “That’s what she kept returning to:  how healthy they looked.  They bounced out of bed in the morning; they peppered her with questions–about people, about birds, about dogs (could they have a puppy?);  they were eager to have uniforms and to start school. 

She assumed their mothers had died of AIDS;  it couldn’t be known for certain.  Could the virus be snaking through their veins at this very moment, while they sat in the sunshine playing jacks with small stones and laughing?”


For these meme I’d like to tag some of the new people I’ve been reading recently:



Bub and Pie

And if anyone else hasn’t done this and wants to, leave me a comment and jump right in!

  1. You have the book! How is it!??!

  2. This sounds like a great read. Thanks for playing!!!

  3. Wow – those are some riveting sentences.

    I actually did this meme – all but the posting part – the first time I saw it. I hadn’t yet reached p. 123 of the book in question, so the sentences were pleasantly mysterious and evocative. But then I didn’t post because I didn’t want to be a nerdy self-tagger.

    So thanks for the tag!

  4. Thanks for the tag, it was interesting to do a school book but that’s what was closest. You can read it at http://mdessy.blogspot.com/2006/09/book-meme.html

  5. Hi Mary, thank for the tag. I actually did it yesterday when I read it on your site but forgot to reply. Krina

  6. Mission accomplished!
