I should be in bed (trying out this newfangled idea of going early to bed, early to rise). Besides, I’ve got an “early” seminar tomorrow. So I need to get up early for that anyway. Especially if I want to try to make it to the train station before going up to class.

Anyway, onto the meme!

The Book Meme 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open the book to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the next four to seven sentences on your LJ along with these instructions. 5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest [unless it’s too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1]. 6. Tag five people.

I mean, I’d love it if someone gave me a Tiffany necklace! I wouldn’t be ‘overwhelmed’ or whatever he said. But he was really insistent, so I said I’d keep it for later. Should I maybe– “The present is fine,” says Luke, just as I open my mouth. “You don’t need to add any more.” How did he know what I was going to say?

I had a hard time deciding which one was closer, this one on my top shelf or the one in my bag that wasn’t within reaching distance. Then I looked at the one in my bag and realized that as great as Jane Austen is (I’m reading Persuasion right now) she writes really long sentences. So I went with the “lighter” reading material. XD Not going to tag people, since I don’t see the point in it. I mean, someone will do it if they want to and tagging them won’t make them do it if they don’t. So there. I am still really interested to see what’s the closest book you all have though…
