Roxie’s Meme

Okay–Roxie tagged me, and this sounded very covert and fun…

“PS – you have been meme-tagged.Pick up the nearest book.Open on page 123.Find the fifth sentence.Post the next three sentences.Tag five people,and acknowledge who tagged you. “

Now, the book I’m READING is Lover Enshrined, because sometimes, I am a sheep. But the NEAREST book is my son’s copy of Ender’s Game (which I made him read because it rocks) and here we go:

“She did not let her parents know, and above all never hinted to Peter how often she thought about Ender, how often she wrote him letters that she knew he would not answer. And when Mother and Father had announced to them that they were leaving the city to move to North Carolina, of all places, Valentine knew that they never expected to see Ender again. They were leaving the only place where he knew to find them.”

*EDITED TO ADD* Okay–I checked Roxie’s blog, bless her, and she put in a SANNA TEASER…which A. Makes me want to read the third Sanna even more, and B. makes me want to copy her like a 3rd grader. So here’s from pg. 123 of Bitter Moon II.

“Who’s that for?” Eljean asked, looking at the little space towards the back. There was a stool there, with a battered lute case at the foot of it, and a glass of water at the ready.
“No!” Aylan barked, glaring at Torrant. He was all but supporting Torrant’s weight, although he was doing it so deftly that Stanny hadn’t noticed.
“I have new songs I want him to bring her…” Torrant began.
“And how will he know the melody if I don’t…”
“SING THEM!” They both shouted together at the end. They stood then, toe to toe, heating the room temperature with their glowers.

I tag Knittech, Catie, Louiz, Galad, and Donna Lee!

    Now I’m mad with impatience, too!

    My verification word is qigio. Teehee. Wouldn’t that make a great name for a character?

  3. I think Bittermoon II is more then three sentences… 🙂

    Ender’s Game is a great book and one of my son’s favorites.

    And now that you and Roxie have provided a teaser, it will be hard to wait. Sigh. No pressure to write faster. Sigh (is it working 🙂
