Book Meme

Thanks Wendy for the tag! This fun and really original book meme says:

1) Grab the book closest to you
2) Open to page 123, go down to the fourth sentence
3) Post the text of the following 3 sentences
4) Name the author and book title
5) Tag three people to do the same

I do all my reading (just about) upstairs so most of the books down here belong to the kids or to Chris. From where I sit at the computer, the children's books and Chris' pile of life are about the same distance. I'll go for the grown-up stack :)

I think he has finished this one (but he's asleep, so I won't ask). The book is John MacArthur's, The Book on Leadership. Here are the sentences:

By the end of chapter 7, he seemed to have thoroughly unburdened himself. He closed that section with these words: "Therefore I rejoice that I have confidence in you in everything" (2 Corinthians 7:16). It reads like a great, sweeping, comprehensive sigh of relief.

I really wanted to use one of my books and I had to keep myself from cheating and going upstairs!

I am excited to start 'More Love to Thee'. With Leslie , as our resident book reviewer and Girl Talk hosting the *book club* this is a great way to be disciplined in my reading and focused on ONE book at a time!


Blessings!

Oh- and I tag, Jenn, Tiff, and Amy :)

Thanks for playing along.

I am hoping to read "More to Love Thee" as well.

PS - I had to laugh at your Playdoh post. We've had some crazy things happen w/it too.

Thanks for the link!

You're going to enjoy More Love to Thee.

Oh, to have such self-control! I probably would have gone to get "one" of my own. You put me to shame!

I'm reading "More Love to Thee" as well with the Girltalk book club. My mom is going to read it with me too.
