Book Meme

I stole, I mean found this over on Jill Shalvis' blog and thought it looked like fun. So, being the sheep I am, I decided to try it.

The directions are:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open it at page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence/ phrase.
4. Blog the next four sentences/ phrases together with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig your shelves for that very special or intellectual book.
6. Pass it forward to six friends

I'm not going to pass this on because, well, if you want to do it you will. *g*

"Are you doing that on purpose?" she shouted to the pilot, then bit her tongue when every other person on the plane turned to look at her.

This was taken from Susan Kay Law's book, Just Sex. Which was a wonderful, wonderful story. I can't wait for her next contemporary women's fiction novel.

Okay. Your turn!

  2. There were lots of books in our house that probably would have been more interesting, but I took your tag here:
