Book Meme

I’m feeling sleepy and like the best thing to do right now is to go back to bed. I have a lot of work on my plate this week, which is a good thing. But even so, I don’t wanna do it yet.

So, here’s a little book meme for fun.


* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"She could have any man she wanted in Verity, married or not. There are actually some women who won’t allow their husbands to come down to the Hole-in-One on Sunday mornings, as if Janey would look at them twice. She figures love and heartbreak are best suited for teenagers; she’s got enough on her hands with raising Shannon, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think about the way things used to be."

—Alice Hoffman, Turtle Moon
