Tag, I'm It!

I seem to recall always being "it" when playing tag. Perhaps I was just the easy target?

In this case, I certainly don't mind. Shaney "tagged" me to play a little meme thingamajig.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence.
5. Tag 5 people.

The nearest book to me: The View From Here: Conversations with Gay & Lesbian Filmmakers by Matthew Hays.

The sentence: "Living memory was an issue for us." (a quote from Aerlyn Weissman about Forbidden Love, a lesbian film made by her and Lynne Fermie)

Hmm... so who do I tag?

Mysterious Creature
Strange State
Buck's Ghosts & Hauntings
the chaser blog
Ravings of a Sidekick

"I'm glad Uncle Harry's going to ship our ponies down to the Circle Cross pastures where they'll be warm for the winter," shouted Peter above the roar of the plane, as they took off for home.

From The Book of Cowboys by Holling C. Holling published by The Platt & Munk Co. Inc., 1936.

I freakin' love the illustrations in this charming children's book from the 1930's. It's hanging by a thread (I really need to have it rebound) but I've had it since I was a kid. Anyway, that was the nearest book to me. Well, that and Jerome Clarks, Unexplained! But that seemed so... obvious.

"Uh, Paul," I said, "could you give her a message for me?"

You in Revolt by C.D. Payne

This was a strange MEME...It would have been easier if the original question was "what book are you reading" I have found it far more interesting, learning what people are or have been reading... LOL
But thankyou for humouring me! xoxo

My nearest book is the Ghost Hunter's Guidebook by Troy Taylor. We turn to page 123 and locate the 5th sentence and get:

"Paranormal photographs are taken in the same way that standard photographs are, but many of them show extra images that were not visible when the photographs were taken."

That book was on the top of the pile by my desk and the next one down is a history of criminal justice in the 18th Century titled "The London Hanged".

Correction, same color binding so I assumed. Actually it's same subject but different book: "Crime and the Courts in England 1660-1800" by J.M. Beattie.

Just for giggles:

"It seems likely that magistrates and coroners shared the views of judges and jurors."
