a belated tag...

having been tagged by c-tone for the meme making the rounds whereby one is to:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123.
3. Find the first five sentences.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people

but having previously responded to tam's non-tag thusly:

"well, i won't do the tag thing, but here is my entry, from a rather contemporary work; wonder if any of your correspondents recognize it?:

"Yeah, I know. Some of my book club friends would agree with my pick,
but there are plenty who consider him too mainstream, whatever the hell that is.
I guess they had to suffer The Road Not Taken one too many times in high
school.”

and in a later response:

"for those wondering about my entry, it is from "a bettered life" by marko kloos...i said "contemporary" because it was finished and published online just a few days ago.

it was closest to me because it was downloaded to my laptop which was ummm...on my lap of course, when i first read tam's self-tagged meme.

if you haven't read it, do yourself a favor and go to munchkin wrangler's blog where you can download it for free...unless you want to do the right thing and toss a buck or twenty into the tip jar...a very pleasant casual read; worth your time and worth paying for if you want to see more...jtc

so, i have fulfilled the first four parts of the meme, but i'm not much for tagging others, but thanks c-tone, i hope others will be inspired to download and read marko kloos' work.

I have not read it, which is not at all suprising considering that I don't read much of anything anymore. I have a stack of books that require my attention, and one to be delivered at my door today, and I can't do anything about it.

I have book of hunting stories from Theodore Roosevelt that I want to read. The book in the mail is The Moment of Truth by Michael Yon. I may just have to run away for a day or two and read that one.
