Norm at normblog has tagged me for this … and because I’ve never been tagged before (I’m so easily flattered) and because my nearest book was not what I usually read but what I absolutely need (for research for my next novel) I thought I’d give it a go:
1. Pick up the nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you
Nearest book: The Edwardians: the Remaking of British Society by Paul Thompson. The sixth, seventh and eighth sentences on page 123 are:
There was the annual Sunday school outing. In summer they could go walking, and pick up apples. But for these English country children there was nothing equivalent to the storytelling, music and dancing which still flourished, as we saw in Peter Henry’s story, both in family and community in the north.
