I copied it from Amanda
Okay, nifty!So, this is just a Meme, but it's a pretty good one. I wasn't tagged, I just grabbed it off another blog because it appealed to me:
1. Grab the nearest book. If you are currently reading something, that'll be fine too.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 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 that is what you were thinking!
6. Tag 5 people
Here is mine:
"Beregond bowed his head to hide his tears. 'They said that he was dying,' he sighed, 'and now he is dead.'
'No," said Pippin, 'not yet. And even now his death may be prevented, I think."
Yes, I'm finally reading The Return of the King, the third part of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Mostly because Gregg Koskela keeps making references to "the greatest epic fantasy of all time" as it says on the back of the paperback version in my hand, and my husband gets them all and I don't. Or at least I didn't until now.
I read The Hobbit in high school, but was bored/overwhelmed by the trivia of Middle Earth in LOTR.
Existential question: Does this make me cool for reading such a good book or lame for not having read it before?
But it's taking most of my free time these days, so don't expect much blogging in the meantime.
Oh yeah. I tag Chris, Aj, Paul, Rebecca, and Garrett.
