Yay! I've been tagged by Ruth. I love books and reading, so this one's a good one for me. Here's what I'm supposed to do:
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people
The book nearest me is one I just finished, Peace Like a River by Leif Enger. What a beautiful book. Anyway, here's my sentence:
"If Marmee had begged Jo to go cut off her hair and sell it," Swede hypothesized, "I wonder how heroic a thing it would have been."
The context is the protagonist's little sister is trying to convince him to use some money he's just earned to buy food instead of to buy a canoe he really wants by referencing Little Women, another great book. So there you have it. I now tag New York Lindsay, Charmain, Beth, Christian, and Heidi.
