Its Meme Time Again----(ya gotta luv it)

I think dear readers, you will find this Meme just a mite more challenging than the last one I tossed out on ya. Anyway it goes like this, (and I fully expect to read your answers in your future blogs----):

1) Pick up the nearest book
2) Open it to page 123
3) Find the fifth sentence.
4) Post in you blog the next three sentences after that fifth one you have identified(that is to say sentences 6, 7 and 8)
5) tag five or more people, And acknowledge the person who tagged you.

Well I am playing the game, and I first must tell you that I received this Meme 123, from my new Friend Peter Rozovsky, of Detectives Beyond Boarders . If one goes to his blog, you will learn that this is not his first experience with this very same Meme----its kind of a case of what goes around , comes around.

This is my Meme entry. The book title is, "No Graves As Yet", by Anne Perry. This particular novel the first of her novels in her series set in the period of the First World War.

--------"That policeman's just been talking to me, sir, asking a lot of questions about Allard. I really don't know what to say". He looked awkward.
"If you know something that could have a bearing on his death, then you'll have to tell him the truth," Joseph answered --------------

The book of course is of the Mystery Genre, and if your not familiar with Anne Perry's style, you need to understand she is adept at painting detailed descriptive word scenes. Not just of the physical surrounding the story takes place in, but of all the characters in the book---she really brings them to life, and you really get to KNOW them. You will find yourself totally enmeshed in the story, and oblivious to your real world reality. At least that's my reaction to reading Anne Perry .

Anyway people, and by people I am herein officially tagging --- Judi, Dana, Missy, Mrmacrum, and last but not least---NucMEd------will be most interesting to see what books this eclectic group offers us snippets of.


  1. Gotta love a meme. I caught the meme fever too. :)

  2. Sounds like fun ... I will do this tomorrow. Happy Tuesday Gary!

  3. Assignment done. I may grumble about doing these meme/tag things, but methinks I protest too much. They often get my juices flowing in other directions than just down.

  4. OK I am game. You will have to wait until tommorrow. Some of us do have to work.


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
