Not Technically Tagged....

But it seemed like an easy enough meme to do:) Catherine had this on her site.

The rules are simple. Look up from the computer, look around the room where you're sitting and pick up the closest book. And closest really means closest. No cheating by running upstairs to unearth your pink-highlighted college copy of The Critique of Pure Reason or the Prolegomena. Open the book, turn to page 123, count down to the fifth sentence on that page, and then post the next three sentences.

Well, there are 3 books nearest me: my LB Brief Writing Handbook. Blah. My Elementary and Intermediate Algebra Textbook. Double blah. And my writing textbook called The Writer's Presence. I'll go with that one, since there are at least stories in that one!

On Pg 123 the story is "A Clack of Tiny Sparks" by Bernard Cooper

"He was 'all wound up,' as my mother put it."

That would take awhile for me to figure out I have a ton of books right next to me but they are all home school books.
