Book Meme

A new blog for me, that I've been really enjoying is Amaretto girls blog.
She recently emailed me and asked me to do her Book meme. Thanks for tagging me! I also want to thank you for linking your readers to the definition of Meme.. I had always thought it was pronounced MEM like in memo. I was surprised to see Wikipedia actually covers this word!

Now the rules of a book meme are as follows:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

My book club and I are reading "the senators Wife" by Sue Miller... It is right here on my desk...
Page 123- sentence 6- Then he mentioned the campaign, his campaign for reelection, which had already begun.
7- When she came to this passage, Delia smiled bitterly.
8-So this was what lay under it all-under the wooing, under the regret.

I am not too crazy for this book. It is interesting enough, I want to finish it. But I feel like not much has truly happened. I had originally thought it would be about corruption in the senate. Or, Scandalous, seductive, sexy senator shenanigans! I've been more entertained & shocked by REAL life former N.Y. Senator Spitzer, I guess he is a tough act for a fiction writer to follow!
I am hoping the ending will surprise me and make it worth the read.

I am not tagging anyone in particular, Instead I invite anyone who is interested to please do the book meme!

Thanks for doin' the 'meme' thing -- and for mentioning ME :-)
Quite honestly, I didn't know what it was until I was tagged!!! I love that you're part of a book club - I would love to be part of one but where I live thats a no go. Your expectations of the book made me laugh --especially since fact is often STRANGER than fiction!!! Go to: for a real laugh!!! (its a you tube spitzer spoof song and it'll make you smile!!!) I hope others appreciate your meme too!! Will still think about other ways we can connect/play out here in the blogosphere!

I like this meme and have done this before. That book you mentioned is intriguing! Thanks for visiting my sunday scribblings post earlier.

I tried this MEME but Penthouse Forum only has 90 pages.

I did this back in February. It's a great idea.Having read your extract and comments, I think I'll give this book a miss!

If you are interested, a click on my name will take you to my response to this meme.
