Book meme

Oooh my first meme!!  I have a lovely lady to thank for such an honor.

Much to her chagrin, however, my book will NOT be porn.  Don’t you wish!!

I happen to be reading three books simultaneously right now – The Step Diet, Positive Discipline, and The No-Cry Sleep Solution.  All of which I am too tired to provide linkage to, thanks to a-couple-people-who-shall-remain-nameless letting Jake doze off tonight at 9:30 p.m. when we weren’t at home.  So it is now past 1:00 a.m. and he’s still raring to go. 


Anyway, I’m not at home.  We are in Saratoga Springs visiting some of our best friends in the whole world.  And I’m sitting at their desk, so the book closest to me is Persuasion by Jane Austen.  So, without further ado, Page 123, sentences 5, 6, and 7:

And there was a Mrs. Wallis, at present only known to them by description, as she was in daily expectation of her confinement; but Mr. Elliot spoke of her as ‘a most charming woman, quite worthy of being known in Camden Place’, and as soon as she recovered, they were to be reacquainted.  Sir Walter thought much of Mrs. Wallis; she was said to be an excessively pretty woman, beautiful.  He longed to see her.

Since BeThisWay tagged nearly all the bloggers I know… I am forced to tag Normal Boy, who I barely know.  Go for it, dude.  🙂

  1. I love Jane Austen. 🙂

    I still think you have porn.

  2. ROFLOL over the porn comment

  3. Of COURSE I own porn. It just wasn’t in arm’s reach. 😀

  4. Your nearest book was way more exciting than the book nearest to me. But hey, I have to follow the rules, right?

    Meanwhile, does porn ever reach 123 pages? That’s a looooong book for porn!

  5. The Jane Austen was mine, by the way. The porn is hidden away when we have guests.
