I was tagged by Anne Frasier (static ) for a literary meme.
The rules are:
1. Take first five novels from your bookshelf. 2. Book 1 -- first sentence. 3. Book 2 -- last sentence on page 50. 4. Book 3 -- second sentence on page 100. 5. Book 4 -- next to the last sentence on page 150. 6. Book 5 -- final sentence of the book. 7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph. 8. Feel free to "cheat" to make it a better paragraph. 9. Name your sources.10.Post to your blog.
Okay, here goes:
"Have you reached a verdict?" Judge Alfred Neff asked the eight men and four women seated in the jury box. Unlike some of the other rooms, this one had a regular stand-up shower. He's not going to welcome a call from a woman in emotional meltdown. And the boy listened, and he remembered all that he was told. It was no doubt grief preying on my imagination, drunken thinking taking voice.
