No. This time I have been tagged by Sue Eves with a really neat one.
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 post a comment back to Sue's blog (she's the one who tagged me - you will in turn nominate the person who tagged you - ie me) once you've posted your three sentences.
So . . . nearest book . . . that would have to be . . . (aside from my own) . . .
Under the Black Flag by David Cordingly, a non fiction book about pirates.
"Mower was a Boston man, thirty years of age, "of short stature, thin favoured, and dark complexion," and he had good reason to be worried. No sooner had the pirates taken the ship than they decided to force Mower to join them. The methods which they used left him with little choice."
So now I tag (again):
Catherine J Gardner
Heidi the Hick
and . . .
