Page 123 Book Meme

I was tagged by the always wonderful Christina Ferguson. (SO sorry for my delay - I was distracted by this egomaniac named Napoleon.) In any case, here's what I'm supposed to do:

1) Find the nearest book
2) Open to page 123
3) Type lines 6-8 of said book
4) Tag three others

Nearest book:

20 Master Plots: And How to Build Them by Ronald B. Tobias

On page 123, the lines 6-8 are:

3. The riddle challenges the reader to solve it before the protagonist does.
4. The answer to your riddle should always be in plain view without being obvious.

Okay, three others: Carl, Miriam, and Matt.

Nearest Book: The Deluxe Transitive Vampire by Karen Elizabeth Gordon.

Pg 123: Two or more antecedents joined by "and" take a plural pronoun.

Samson and Delilah licked their chops.
Rosie and Nimrod rubbed their flanks
Alyosha and Jean-Pierre have lost their luggage.

Singular antecedents joined by "or" or "nor" take a pronoun that's also singular.

Neither Nimbus nor Quercus will present his rosebud to the queen.

Tagging Nena, Bob, and Pat.

okay I'm at work, so here goes nothing (and I mean nothing)
Book: Enivironmental Ethics: Duties go and Values in the the Natural World.

Pg 123.

Additionally the wildlife population is less affected, streams less polluted by soil erosionm and their temperatures better regulated if the streamside buffer zones are left.

Tag Mickey, Unk, and Rose (we miss you Rose!!!)

Damn you, Bob.

Okay, "His Excellency", by Joseph J. Ellis

p. 123 lines 6-8

"...the main event which would divert troops and treasure needed elsewhere. When pressure from the Congress mounted for a prospective Franco-American expedition into Quebec, Washington objected on..."

tag...Christ, is there anywhere left to tag? Um, Michelle, Jay Strange, and Ted Frothingham (cuz I know none of them will ever see this!)

Oh, golly, this was meant to be something for others to post on their blogs.

But ya know, it's interesting what you guys are reading. I doesn't surprise me one bit Bob's got an environmental book nearby.

I've actually picked up "His Excellency" a few times. I would absolutely read that book. Is it good?


Mickey Lee said...

I thought it was great, MM. But I'm a huge George Washington fan, so I'm biased. Ellis is always a good read (even when he's plagarizing, lol)

Rose said...

Geez... I get tagged and it ain't even on MY blog (which of course, I ain't keepin' up with these days...)

Ok, the book: Money & Power: The History of Business by Howard Means

Page 123:

Lines: ...succession of bank failures that launched the Panic of 1873, Durant tried to bounce back with an ultimately unsuccesful scheme to yo develop the timber and iron resources of the Adiron...

Step Right Up: Stories of Carnivals, Sideshows and the Circus

p 123 - "Can you be happy with the movies and the ads and the clothes in the stores and the doctors and the eyes as you walk down the street all telling you there is something wrong with you? No."

Ooooh, just learned what tagging is. I remain so in the dark about this whatchimacallit, the Interweb?
