book tag

ganns just gave me my first impulse blogging tag. kewl.

thanks, ganns.

it's funny though. i wanted to be strict with the tag, but i ended up doing several tries for different weird reasons. you'll find out what after the instructions. hehe.

The rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Ganns's blog (he's the one who tagged me) once you’ve posted your three sentences.

I am in my mom's room where the DSL and computer are, so the nearest book I grabbed was hers. It was "Consider the Alternative" by Lee M. Silverstein, but it wasn't long enough either. Just like what happened to Ganns.

After that, the nearest book I got was from the bathroom which was "Love" by Miriam Zellnick. It's my bathroom reading. But when I checked page 123, it only has one quote as it was the introduction page to another chapter.

Eng. Next book then. I had to get from my room because there were no other books in sight. The first book on top of the shelf nearest by door was Faeries by Brian Froud. But what do you know... there aren't any page numbers. I even tried counting the pages until 123 only to end up with an illustration page that only has five sentences. Haha.

Last try then.

Finally. A hard bound copy of "Anansi Boys" by Neil Gaiman. All the other stuff on the level of the shelf were comics and would not reach 123 pages.

The fifth sentence and the next three after that:
He put them on, along with a purple sweater with a teddy bear on it his mother had once given him that he had never worn but had never got around to giving away.

He went to the end of the corridor.

The boom-chagga-boom of a bass and drums penetrated the door.
I tag you:

1. Maan
2. Toni of Wifely Steps
3. Tatit of What a Wanderful World
4. Leanne of My Life In A Page
5. Jowi of This Isn't A Dress Rehearsal

It's so funny how you had so many failed attempts... wasn't this supposed to be a simple tag?

Your excerpt sounds like a cliffhanger ;)
