MeMe TiMe

All right, then. Here comes more MEME-age. The book meme, for starters, which I was tagged for by Abby O. If you read the blog regularly and are thinking... woah... DeJa Vu!... think again. Heather did it a few weeks ago and now it is my turn.

The Rules, in case you do not know them, are as follows:
Pick up the book closest to you.
Turn to page 123.
Find sentence number five.
Post sentences numbers five, six, and seven.
Tag.

The book closest to me is My Friend Leonard, by James Frey. Actually, that is a lie. Kind of. It is the book closest to me now, because it's in my lap, but when I decided to post the Meme, the closest book to me was my mother's Joyce Meyer book. So I went for the book closest to the door of my bedroom.

Without having ordered, coffee arrives. I take a sip, it's hot, strong. I
feel it immediately, my heart starts racing.
Time for the serious talk, my son.

I haven't started reading this book yet, but I'm going to today. It is a
memoir about the author's post-imprisonment experiences with his best friend, a mafia member named Leonard. It looks very interesting, and I do like sentences five, six, and seven of page 123.

My second order of business is to inform you of something that you may have already noticed. We have a lot of books on our to-be-reviewed icon. And the sad thing is that those are not the only books that I have read and am
planning
to review. So, I'm going to give you a list of books that I
have
read and am planning to review, and I am going to request that
you leave a comment, telling me which book you would most like
to read a review about

The Book Thief, Markus Zusak

Lock and Key, Sarah Dessen

The Key to the Golden Firebird, Maureen Johnson

Suite Scarlett, Maureen Johnson

Blue Bloods/Masquerade, Melissa De la Cruz

Impulse, Ellen Hopkins

Sandpiper, Ellen Wittlinger

The Dispreputable History of Frankie Landeau-Banks, E. Lockhart

How To Be Bad, E. Lockhart, Lauren Myracle, Sarah
Mlynowski

That's all that I can recall at the moment, but I've read most of the ones that hang out in the sidebar, fighting for attention.

You're it.

I've got to talk to you...maybe your home from the beach now, I don't know. I'll call you, but if I had to choose...um....The Disreputable History or How to be Bad, both of which have the wonderful writing of E. Lockhart.
