If you didn’t know by now, I suck at posting awards and stuff. However, when a goddess like Lala at Coastal Commentaries takes the time out to honor me, I can do nothing less than bow before the goddess. 😉
First, the meme:
The rules are as follows:
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. Post a comment and then tag five more people.
But first Raoul had to finish clearing the mess he had left behind.
It meant another trip to Germany.
He waited for the Imperator to leave.
This passage is from “Map of Bones” by James Rollins. This is not normally a book I’d buy to read, but my sister’s partner is also an avid reader, and passed this book and about five or six others of his to read. The first one I read was “Black Order” and I really enjoyed it. “Map of Bones” has been favorably compared to “The DaVinci Code“, so we’ll see if that is correct or said merely to sell books.
For this meme, I tag the following five people:
Okay, now for the awards and tags:
Menstrual Poetry: Opinionated and sharp as a knife. Love it.
Ryan Garns: Satirical funny at its best.
The Cult of Qelqoth: Demented, perverted, shameless and twisted. I dream of him at night. Heh.
Power and Stilettos: She has both and ain’t afraid to use ’em.
The Worse Blog: Good for shits and giggles.
And one more award Lala saw fit to bestow upon me that I shall pass along:
Imagination Manifesto: Breathtakingly beautiful, with words to match.
The Half-Life of Linoleum: Thought-provoking and insightful. I love his ratios and his conversations with Jilly Nines.
Michael Writes: Honest and heartfelt, and very good about expressing it.
CopyWrite: Always informative and cutting edge, the quality is excellent.
Two Hundred Sacred Words: Nothing but flash. I think I’m in love.
Do yourself a favor, and check these peeps out. You won’t be disappointed, I promise. If you are, Qelqoth promises everyone a refund. *snicker*
Thanks, Lala, for the awards. Spread the love around people — I’m sure you all know the drill by now. Show us your favorites, your can’t-live-blog-life-without blogs.
And thanks for reading.
