so the fabulous 60Piggies tagged me to do a book meme. yay…book memes! I'm not usually a meme person but a meme about books has to be okay doesn't it?
So here goes:
THE BOOK MEME
the rules….there must always be rules for this sort of thing. I wonder who sits around thinking up these 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 acknowledge who tagged you.**
Well, unfortunately for you guys the nearest book was a stack of three so you are gonna get all of 'em, cause you know rule breaking and me, we're tight. Alright, not really but it sounded fun.

But Capricorn looked quite different.
Meggie soon gave up counting the doors they passed before Basta finally stopped outside one."
(Inkheart, Cornelia Funke)
Now I tag (whew, I actually know 5 people with blogs who read that I can tag, that's a relief):
