I am too technologically maladroit to know what Meme is, but I can guess. And as Barbara says, it’s an easy one, so I’m going to play along.
Note as you read, Barbara is somewhat of an anti-fan of sci-fi; so for her to discover BG and like it is… well, no surprise; she’s a pretty bright woman.
Okay, on to the Meme: Book Meme Rules
I lucked out on the first one.
I got the notice while at work; and since I am in the midst of a book archiving project, I have all kinds of titles from the ‘70’s surrounding me that could have reflected, shall we say, “oddly” on me.
In my line of sight:
THE GLOW: About a couple that become supernaturally addicted to jogging.
BLUE MOVIE: Which asks, “Can the world’s greatest director make the world’s raunchiest film?”
And DOLOROSA DEAL, about an African secret agent in Jerusalem labeled as “a wild black card sitting on a mid-East powder keg!”
But instead I get to look smart: not only was I reading Barbara’s blog while at my desk, I was also prepping for book club. (Sshh, don’t tell anyone…)
So the closest book to me: James Joyce’s ULYSSES.
Page 123, fifth sentence onward:
J.J. O’Molloy sent a weary sidelong glance towards the statue and held his peace.
-I see, the professor said.”
And now I spread the challenge: here you go, Jennifer, Jeff, Jeff, Janet and anyone else that would like to play.
Just my thoughts,
