Yet another book meme

Safe and sound in Austin I am, and/but learning that my brother's duties will be to teach Iraqis how to run military warehouses . . . maybe in Kuwait, but possibly in Iraq (he doesn't yet have his orders). He's learning some Arabic, which is cool. The "Iraq" part is a bit less cool, though.

Anyway.

Fellow Texan N. of Sinequanon has tagged me with an unusual book meme. Here goes:

*Find the nearest book.
*Name the title and author.
*Turn to p. 123.
*Post sentences 6-8.
*Tag 3 more people.

Sounds like fun, though I'm not sure what will be done with all these spare parts. So, here goes:

My book: The Known World, by Edward P. Jones (I'm finally getting around to reading this, and I'm both happy that I am and very sad that I have waited this long).

And here are sentences 6-8 on p. 123:

"Who's that you playin with like children in the dirt?"
"That Moses. You know Moses, Mr. Robbins."


Perhaps this exquisite corpse (if that's what it is to be) can use a little dialogue.

And now, 3 people to tag:

Joel Mathis of Cup o' Joel
Debra of Reflecting
and Hank of A Lake County Point of View

OK... I'm on it. The nearest book huh?

Thank you so much for not tagging me. I looked around and the closest book is a dead-tree dictionary. Hmmm... how do you count sentences in a dictionary?

Happy Holidays!
