Fifth Sentence Book Meme

One of my very favorite bloggers, Jamie @ Duward Discussion tagged me with the Fifth Sentence Book Meme last week and I am at long last getting around to it in my usual inimitable couldn't-get-to-it-very-quickly style! Of course, having seen Ms Maggie Moo's interpretation of this meme, I figured that the rest of us might as well just bow out graciously and give the honors of doing this meme strictly to her! Whoa ... !!

Anyhow, first the rules and then my boring - compared to Ms. Moo - results!

Here are the Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.

In the Land of Second Chances
"In the last few years there have been rumors that her post-marital sexual tastes have switched. I don't care if they have or not. She is a fine peace officer and a hard-core member of the Circle."
It's been so long since I've read this book that I don't really remember exactly what it was about except that it's centered around a small bed & breakfast in Ebb, Nebraska and a handsome stranger who comes to town selling games of chance who manages to solve everyone's problems using nothing but common sense and three simple arguments. Heck, I can't even remember where those three sentences are going in the big scheme of the book but this was a fun meme and easy to do!

For that reason, I tag Ralph, Patti, Joan, Pinky, and Connie! If you've already been tagged then I apologize - like I said I'm late to the party on this one!

  3. That's an interesting little meme. I've been duly tagged by someone else and will definitely get around to it. Great job!

  4. It is amazing how you can tell that a story might be well written and interesting just by grabbing three sentences at random.

    What sexual tastes did she switch to?
