My First Meme and a Photo Of Wade Robson

I was "tagged" by my friend at Jak-in-the-house for this book meme. I have never done one of these, but since she is such a dear friend, I will do almost anything she asks me to (even show her a breakdancing move that I was working on last summer while we watched our favorite summertime show- "So You Think You Can Dance". I think she probably regretted that she ever asked me that one! Speaking of SYTYCD... I just had to include a link to Wade Robson's site!!!!)
(Okay, okay... back to the book meme!)

Book Meme Rules -

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Oh, here we go. Mansfield Park. It's my current book for the book club I'm in. Can you guess the theme? Yes. It is a Jane Austen book club.

So, page 123...

"Will not that do, Mrs. Grant? Everything seems to depend upon Sir Thomas' return. You will find his consequence very just and reasonable when you see him in his family, I assure you. I do not think we do so well without him. He has a fine dignified manner, which suits the head of such a house, and keeps everybody in their place."

I would just LOVE to tell you the context of this passage, however, I have not read up to page 123 yet. These books are slow-going and require being read only AFTER the children are asleep. They require every ounce of concentration and focus that I have (left at the end of the day). Which is why I am not yet up to page 123. There is usually not much intellect left at 9pm...

Oh, and I will follow all of the rules except for the last one. I am not going to tag anyone. However if anyone of you would like to play along, just leave me a comment and let me know so I can come read your book meme!

I'm glad to see that someone else posted on Jackie's meme! Good luck with Mansfield Park - I just read (or reread, in some cases) all of Jane Austen's books last year. They're definitely worth the effort. :)

this is a fun meme - but I will have to try it when I am sitting next to something other than the church directory!
I heart Wade.
