Tag I'm It!

I've been tagged by the lovely TwentySomethingMomma (who by the way has the most gorgeous kids in the world - apart from my own of course)
The rules are:

1. Collect the book that you have most handy.
2. Turn to page 161.
3. Find the 5th complete sentence.
4. Cite the sentence on your blog.
5. Pass it on to 5 other bloggers.
Now I will confess that when I got this I did, for a moment, contemplate running out to the loungeroom and grabbing a copy of Gone With The Wind or some other epic classic (kind of like a 'What, this old thing? I just had it lying around' but in a book version rather than an outfit). But in the spirit of truthfulness, I did grab the book that was most handy and that was Stephen King's 'The Dark Half'.
The 5th complete sentence on page 161 is:
'Perhaps they would begin after Alan called back.'
That was kind of disappointing. I was hoping for a bit more excitement than that. But it was sort of interesting.
These are the bloggers I am tagging with this. (I put everyone in a random number generator because I hate choosing between people.)
Have fun!


  1. I don't have a random number generator to see who to send this to. lol. So, I'm just gonna leave it here in your comment box.

    Book: As Time Goes By (a follow up to Casablanca).
    Page 161. 1st complete sentence, "Boys," he said over the fallen flunky, "a lesson to you this should only be."

    Hi Kerree, I hope you had or are having a good day. I can't keep up with the time difference from here to there. :-)

  2. Aww, you're too sweet! =)

    I know what you mean about expecting something a little more exciting... but hey, at least we had fun flipping back to see what the 5th line down would be! LOL!

  3. i picked the three handiest books because i don't accept defeat.

    The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien
    "According to there own tales they were the original inhabitants and were descendents of the first Men that ever wandered into the west of the middle-world."

    The Catcher in the Rye
    This one depends on definition of complete sentence.
    "What has our government done for the Alaskan Eskimos"

    Slaughterhouse 5 by Vonnegut
    "Someone was coming"

  4. I know. I put "1st complete sentence" in my comment above but... it was indeed the 5th. lol.


  5. Glad you were honest. I'd probably pick something not handy too xoxo

  6. What an interesting tag! Wonder what the 5th complete sentence is in Gone With The Wind?

  7. Thanks for the comment on my blog. It means a lot, so thanks! I like your blog and I am following you now, too. Have a great holiday weekend!

  8. Tagging you yet again, but for something a little bit different... drop by my blog to see what's waiting for you! <3
