Book Meme

 Charley  and many others have done this book meme... So am I!

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.

I am reading several books right now and have several waiting in the wings.  The book at the top of the pile closest to me in the kitchen is the one that won.

The book is Jeff Shaara's 'To The Last Man', a novel of the First World War.

"I want every staff officer in London to know your name.  I want every enemy pilot who flies the Western Front to live in dread that his next opponent will be Richtofen!"  He straightened, turned away with a wide smile.  "Indeed.  This is precisely what we need.  The newspapers will put this on every front page."

I had to do six sentences to not break up the last quote!

Rather than tag five people, I want everyone who hasn't done it to give it a try!

be well,

Well, I was gonna try all this stuff, what with all the instructions and such---but I ran outta fingers AND toes, and to top it all off, kept forgettin' where I was in the list of instructions!

Thanks for playing! If you like his WWI novels, you might like his civil war novels as well.
