As easy as 1-2-3

Maria tagged me to do this meme and it's easy as 1-2-3!

All you have to do is:

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123 and go down to the fifth sentence.
3. Post the text of next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Name the book and the author.
5. Tag three people.


I smiled from ear to ear, as i jumped into her arms and held her tightly. As she ran her hand through my hair, I began to cry. Mother cried too, and I began to feel that my bad times were finished.

From "A Child called It" by Dave Pelzer

No tags, just do it if you want to. :D

I am going from book to book. It's like reading lots of opened pages.
Very strange, but also fascinating.

Caroline,

I know! This didn't make sense at first but I am beginning to get it.

Marie said...

I'm beginning to get it too.

I thought this was great, come see mine.
I remember this book and I remember this part. It's still so emotional...

Maria said...

nice one!

is it strange that it made sense to me the 1st time? i felt that the book lines form page 123 was a random message for you or a reminder of your current state... much like when you open the Bible and read a verse.

ewan, i'm processing this too much.

me.

Marie,
It's great, isn't it?

Leo,
I got this book because I read it on yours and Maysha's book tag meme. I have been browsing through it -- just reading bits and pieces. I stop when I get too emotional. One of these days I am going to take a deep breath and read it in one sitting. Then I'm probably going to hug my kids so, so tightly.

Maria,
That's exactly how it feels! And LOL on the processing. That is so you.

Steve,
I tried to get the other books but they weren't available.

Doing the meme did not make sense to me but I enjoy reading about what everyone is reading.
