I don't do memes

But Delphi tagged me with one that I can do without any thought...so here goes...

The rules are simple. Look up from the computer, look around the room where you're sitting and pick up the closest book. And closest really means closest. No cheating by running upstairs to unearth your pink-highlighted college copy of The Critique of Pure Reason or the Prolegomena. Open the book, turn to page 123, count down to the fifth sentence on that page, and then post the next three sentences.

I just happened to bring my latest (re)read with me when I came downstairs to sit at the computer this morning...Debbie Macomber, 204 Rosewood Lane. I am not the least bit embarrassed to admit I read this type of book. These days, it's about all I can manage with the craziness of life all around me. It's kind of like watching soap operas. Ten years can go by and you can still flip it on and understand what's happening. Uncomplicated and easy. And I think I deserve a bit of that.

Anyway...
He continued to hold her close. "I'll always love you," he promised again. Raising her head, she sought his mouth.

Don't ya just love it?

Crazy...I am in the beginning of 74 Seaside Avenue, the last of this series. I like her stuff, not as smutty as your typical romance novels. I told the lady at the library after reading finance and investing books all the time, along with baby books, I need a little thoughtless reading. She said, every woman needs a little "from the hear" storytelling once in a while. I think it helps me relax and escape.
