Book Tag

Tag, I'm it! My book-club pal Jackie posted the challenge, so here goes...

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Post the fifth sentence.

Drumroll please, this is gonna be a thriller...

"They are therefore unlike the formulaic essays often assigned in English composition courses."

Yup, that's it. Quote taken directly from the fascinating and intriguing textbook, "Teaching ESL Composition." Let's just say this book is a little intellectually-challenged. Honestly, I can't figure out how they managed to publish it. Even at its most profound, all I can say is "duh." I'm just glad that I borrowed it from Interlibrary Loan instead of paying sixty bucks for it. Tag me again in a month when I'm done with classes and my comprehensive exams, and you might get a more exciting sentence. :)

So who to tag next... Brittney, Bruce, and Brianna, you're it!
(I'd tag Brooklyn too, but she's not up to page 123 yet...)

So just for fun I decided to try this even though I wasn't tagged. I closed my eyes and reached over to my bookcase and picked a book at random.

Page 123. Fifth sentence:

"And chiefly among women (because of their longer average survival), the loss of these womens' ties to their husbands' ties, would reduce instrumental and expressive resources."

I promise my gerontology textbooks are usually much more exciting than that.
