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!
