Deena's Meme

This one has made the rounds!

1. Grab the book closest to you
2. Open it to page 161
3. Find the fifth full sentence
4. Post the text of the sentence to your blog
5. Don't search around for the coolest book you have, use the one that is really next to you.
6. Tag five people to do this meme.

The book is The Yada Yada Prayer Group by Neta Jackson.

Pg. 161
5th Sentence:

"I suddenly felt appalled."

Well folks, that was a short and sweet one.

Ok, I'm going to tag Miss Erin, Debi, and Joy, for both or either, if you're interested! I know it says 5 people, but most on my blogroll have already done these and I know several of them (um...Deena hehe) gets tagged like 8 times per meme. So, do them if you would like, don't if you don't want to!

Hey Manda,
The Yada Yada Prayer Group books are so good. I have read them all except the most recent one. Good choice! Fun, interesting, realistic, and inspirational.

Lesley said...

I can't believe it, but with the exception of The Book Thief (which I totally agree with you on), I haven't read any of the other books you listed. gasp!

Erin said...

Will do! Thanks for tagging me.

Deena said...

I'm so proud!! And that first meme...I invented that one:-)

Debi said...

Thanks for the tag, Amanda. I just finished it up.

And as for The Book Thief, I haven't read it yet, but I will be...thanks to you. I put it on my wish list over at paperback swap after one of your posts a few weeks back when you talked about how wonderful it is.

I've heard so many good things about "The Book Thief" recently--I guess I'm just gonna have to read it!
