My darling goblie
caught me this time. Here goes:
Here be the rules:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.
Yeah - as usual, I don't actually know 5 people who pay attention to this, so I'll skip step 6.
1. The nearest books (and there are two) are "Luscious Cravings" by Cameron Dean, and "Shadow People" by John Lawrence Reynolds. You should be shocked that neither of these books are by Nora Roberts, cause since syrai
convinced me to give her a conscious try, I have been striding my way through her books with a truly ridiculous speed. I know she has over 150 books in print... and there is every chance I'll run out of them within the next month.
The books I do have - the first is an author I'm giving a shot to cause I like the font on the cover, and cause I need to read more than just Nora Roberts! It's a vampire novel; second in the series. Usually I would wait and read the first one first, but like I said - I need something other than Roberts and this looks interesting. The second is a book on the history of secret societies, a christmas present. I've been waiting to start it for me to be in the right mood. Nevertheless, it's on the table beside me.
2. Page found on both.
4. (a) [Luscious Cravings] - "I had not been idle in the month since the meeting with the Board. As the chairman himself had suggested, I had done my best to use my time well. And so, or so it seemed, had my competitor, my fellow supplicant, Sloane."
Hrmn. Well - haven't read it yet, but not a particularly exciting part it seems.
4. (b) [Shadow People] - "A few scholars label it 'pagan writing', born from the scheming mind of someone steeped in Egyptian and Greek mysticism, and composed as a counterattack on the efforts of Christians to convert pagans. According to this theory, Apocalypse was meant to serve as a means of converting Christians back to pagans. In a corollary to this idea, popular in the early part of the 20th century, the 'pagans' may well have been Jews seeking to satirize Christianity for their own amusement and ends."
Ah... huh. Again, not a particularly exciting part. Not a lascivious word in the bunch. I need to start reading more salacious books, I guess. :)
