Book Meme

The delightful Kenady tagged me for this meme. Being a bit of a book fan, I really thought this was a good one.

What you do:

Grab the nearest book that has more than 123 pages.

Turn to page 123.

Type in the 6th, 7th and 8th sentences.

Tag 5 people.

My book turned out to be "Caesar, The Conquest of Gaul" (Penguin Classics).

"Everything necessary for repelling the next day's assault was got ready by night, including large numbers of siege spears and stakes charred at the point. The towers were provided with additional storeys, and with wicker breastworks surmounted by a crenellated top. Cicero himself, though in very poor health, would not rest even at night, until a crowd of soldiers actually went to him and by their remonstrances made him take care of himself."

Makes you want to know what happened next, doesn't it? No? Oh well.

I am now supposed to tag 5 people. I don't usually do this, but what the heck!

I tag Ali, Terri, Logzie, Marie and Chris. Let's see which book you have laying around!


Jen said...

Mmm. . . your book sounds very interesting. However, that is one of my favorite times in history, so I just might be a bit biased. May have to check that one out when I have the chance.

Cool post!

Marie said...

Thanks for the tag. However, I did this meme some time last year. I suppose it won't hurt to do it again, though.

Terri said...

I did this one a few days ago... but didn't like how mine turned out. Maybe I'll give it another try and put a different spin on it. That is... if I can find the creativity to mix it up a bit!

Thanks for playing Rock Chef!

Logziella said...

Ah man...I was just thinking about a meme the other day and now I am tagged but I can't do it...bummer!!

I've been so busy with first the holidays and then the move that I have not cracked a book in quite a while. Sorry!!

But...thanks for thinking of me! :0)

Jen - I had no idea you were a history buff! That is great!

Marie - I thought you might have done it before, but it just seemed natural to pick you.

Terri - Yes, I found your one AFTER I had tagged you - sorry.

Kenady - My pleasure!

Logzie - I would have been surprised if you could do this right now, but when you get time...
