Rosemary tagged me for the book meme that's been going around.
Here are the 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.
The nearest book to me is almost always whatever novel I'm working on. I read everywhere -- while cooking, in the bathroom, even in the shower! Since I have a free minute and I'm sitting here at the computer, my book is right by me..... The Grilling Season by Diane Mott Davidson. This is the seventh book in a series of mysteries-with-recipes; the main character and detective of sorts is a caterer.
Alas, page 123 is the end of a chapter, and only contains four sentences. So I'm moving to page 124.
"The interior consisted of a large space, fancifully called "the Ballroom," and a more intimate adjoining space known as "the Octagon." Both rooms provided unequaled views of the lake. There was a kitchen, too."
All the books are set in "Aspen Meadow", a theoretical suburb of Denver. This is a very typical place description. It goes on to mention that of course the kitchen doesn't have a view!
I tag Jen, Lindsay, Arwen, Tracy, and Kim.
I seem to remember that some of you have done this before, but not in the last six weeks -- I checked! Surely you must have a new book around by now. ;-D
