Reading is Sexy
The beautiful and bodacious ANNDI tagged me. I almost never do memes but Anndi is too cool to say No to, plus I get this great badge.
Rules: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 46. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The closest book, not the coolest, or the one you think will sound the best. THE CLOSEST!!!
Then she leaned over the side and vomited and the wind from the Atlantic blew it all over us and the other happy people admiring the view. Passengers cursed and ran, seagulls came from all over the harbor and Mam hung limp and pale on the ship’s rail.
From ‘Angela’s Ashes’ by Frank McCourt. His wonderful memoir of growing up in Ireland and coming to America. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
I read it years ago but it was sitting on the floor right next to my desk so that I can pack it to send to a friend.
I don’t tag people. I just don’t.
But if anyone wants to play along and take the sexy reader badge please do.
I posted a really pretty (if I do say so myself) shadow shot over at THE PHOTO BLOG– check it, and all the other shadow shots, out if you have a minute.
