Stealing From Marg

blessedheart, I have yet to hear from you about your win of the signed copy of FROM DEAD TO WORSE by Charlaine Harris. If I do not hear from you by Tuesday at 3 p.m. I will announce the next winner (Miss Beautiful has already drawn a name). Please contact me at novelreads at gmail dot com (ya know, without the spaces and with the symbols) with your snail mail address so that I may get the book sent to you ASAP! Thanks.

Also, thank you to all of you that commented on the last post! It feels nice to know that I'm not the only one who reads ahead and chooses books that way!

Weekends are usually my time to catch up on the web surfing I miss out on during the week. However, we've bought a pool, and now my weekends are spent outside hanging with family and friends, so I surf at night and then am too tired to really blog. Today, though, I have a burn. In short, my body and face are darker than dark, well, except for my shoulders, that burned, peeled, then immediately burned again. So, I'm inside today, healing what is probably a third degree burn. No lie. It hurts. But I get a chance to catch up for the week without going without lots of sleep tonight.

One of my favorite blogs to catch up on is Reading Adventures written by Marg. The posts are always so well written that it's easy to spend time over there. Today, as I went and did my surfing, I noticed two things I could steal...erm....borrow? So, I'm gonna do just that....

123 Meme

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.

OK, the nearest book is an ARC of LuAnn McLane's soon to be released A LITTLE LESS TALK AND A LOT MORE ACTION (look very soon for a post on this one - I've read it over 10 times!). So, you can't check me until July1, when it is officially released. And even then, it may differ, since technically, ARCs are uncorrected proofs. And as a side note, it just so happens that page 123 is a page I have marked for quoting!


It also boggles my mind how really ugly clothing sells out so quickly but I suppose that at three o'clock in the morning even turquoise tunics look appealing to bleary eyes. Plus they have models who would make a potato sack look sexy. I wonder how many people get UPS packages with turquoise tunics, scratch their heads, and mutter, "What the hell was I thinkin'?"

Now to tag -

1. Wendy
2. Rachael
3. Ter
4 & 5 - YOU!

And the second thing I stole...Ummmm, I mean BORROWED!

The concept:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name
