Book Tag

I was tagged by my sister Jer...
Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people

So being that all of my books are in storage, I went over to one of my mom's bookshelves and thumbed through a few books. One of the children's books caught my eye which was: Doctor Dolittle's Puddleby Adventures by Hugh Lofting. I figured with a title like that, there had to be some good stuff in it

Here's line 5 of page 123: Then all of the wives who had wanted to be New Women rose up and shouted: "We do! We do!"

Ok - so an interesting line right? I was intruiged as there was an illustration of ugly cave women with monkey lips on this page. The page after that went on to talk about a green-breasted martin and these so called women were called "Goo-goos...."

VERY VERY WEIRD. And this is supposed to be written for kids? I noticed my mom picked this up at a garage sale for 25 cents. The first copyright was also in 1925. I wonder what was going on in Hugh Lofting's mind since I am not at all familiar with Doctor Dolittle. Great Friday night reading......

I tag Sara, Brook, Natalie, Ashley, Erin & anyone else who can find something good in a book on page 123!
