Book Meme

I read about something called a book meme over at By Sun and Candlelight and thought it sounded like fun.  Here’s how it works:

1.  Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
2.  Open the book to page 123
3.  Find the fifth sentence.
4.  Post the next three sentences
5.  Tag five people.

So here’s my contribution, from Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore,

“In some ways it is like the parable of Jesus in which laborers who arrive to work at the end of the day are paid the same as those who have been at work since sunrise.  The soul doesn’t necessarily benefit from long, hard work or from fairness of any kind.  It’s effects are achieved more with magic than effort.  Just because you have worked a long time and are fair about it doesn’t mean you will have the benefits of soul you want. ”

Ok, so I added an extra sentence in the hopes that it would make more sense.  I hate leaving off mid-thought – even if it isn’t mine!

I’ve been thinking about who to tag and of course, the most obvious person is Mandy over at 200books.com.  I don’t want to put anyone else on the spot, but if Julie or Quinn would like to contribute, you can do so in my “Comments” section.  I’d love to see what some of you are reading!!!

One thought on “Book Meme

  1. I have bean reading Macbeth when I am at Veritas. And since I’m here right now.
    Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
    Macbeth: Hang out our banner on the outward walls. The cry is still “They come!” Our castles strength will laugh a siege to scorn.
    Not nearly as in depth as yours I must admit. But there’s nothing like a play to get your imagination going! it makes me want to just up on stage and play all the parts in the book. I start picturing what the costume would be and how I would portray the part. I will say that A mid Summers night Dream is still my favorite of Shakespeare plays. It is pleasant and funny and while not his most brilliant work is definitely more fun then Hamlet or Macbeth.
