Book Meme!

I was not tagged because samsarapine does not tag people. I approve of this!

The directions:

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
  5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
  6. Tag five people Do this if you feel like it!

The nearest book is, in fact, one that I finished reading on the Metro, but it's still here in my workday tote bag:

But woes! Page 123 is, in fact, a full-page illustration!!! So, I'm doing page 124:

"Certainly. Come up."

A black arc appeared noiselessly in the flesh of the tower, a lightless curtain parting to reveal nothing but further and deeper darknesses. With a knowing glance towards me, the Witch entered the fissure, and I trotted in behind her.

"I know the dark well; it and I have become fast friends ... ."

From The Orphan's Tales, Volume 1: In the Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente.

I just looked this up on Amazon and it sounds very interesting. I'll have to see if it's available at the library sometime.

I have spent way too much money on books in the last 3 weeks so need to reign in the spending a bit...

Hee, this was tricky, as usual! Closest thing on my left, and closest, period, was Reload 6 (doing a reread for Springkink research); closest things on the shelf to the right are a mixed bag of cookbooks and language textbooks. So I had to skip a little further to the top of the nearest stack of actual prose fiction to find something that was entirely in full English sentences, etc... XD

Malamute breeders whose dogs live mainly in kennels sometimes leave their dogs without collars unless the dogs are going somewhere, in part to avoid freak accidents in which dogs strangle and in part to avoid leaving collar marks in the dogs' coats. Flat buckle collars, in particular, mash down the coat and can even damage it. Consequently, many of us -- and I use us in the obnoxious sense, meaning those of us in the knowledgable elite -- use rolled leather collars. To the best of my recollection, I'd never seen one on a rescue malamute surrendered by an owner or turned over by a shelter.
