From Tracie: What are you reading??

What are you reading??

This looked like fun. I saw it over at Pathological Indecisiveness.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions:
-Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick whatever book is closest to you right now!

So, here it goes:
Disordered Minds by Minette Walters
"Part of Kiszko's statement was a false admission that he had exposed himself some weeks earlier to two teenage girls who had named and identified him. Sixteen years later, when Kiszko was released by the Court of Appeal, these two girls, now grown women, admitted they had invented the story after seeing a taxi driver urinating behind a bush. More criminally, police withheld semen evidence at the trial which they knew would exculpate Kiszko."

This is the part where I am supposed to tag if you want to play along, consider yourself tagged! Let me know if you play and I will come visit!


  1. I generally don't do memes - they muck up my already distorted sense of narrative, I find - but this one looks like fun!

    Back from Michele's, and you always manage to find a way to get us thinking about the world just a little differently.

  2. LOL - the one time there isn't a book near me. I'll have to try this later today.

    Here from the delightful Michele's.

  3. This sounds like fun. I'll have to try it.

    Michele sent me.

  4. I forgot the instructions and they aren't at the top of the page, but you have me curious now. I wonder what my lines will say about me. Always looking for hidden meaning ;)

  5. Hi Tracie, Michele sent me! I enjoyed looking at your blog, it looks like a lot of fun!

  6. I don't really feel like playing,maybe later. Interesting game though. Would be interesting if we all put our results together into one nonsensical story! Here from Michele.

  7. This meme is quite interesting. I am rushed at the moment, but will keep this on the back burner to try later.
    Came by way of Michele.

  8. The only book I have close to me is my Business and Environment book...its kinda boring...sorry ;)

    Michele sent me today!

  9. What a fun meme! Thanks for the idea. Very cool.

    Michele sent me here. Hope you have a great day!

  10. I'll do it here, not on my blog:
    The Civl War Uniforms Coloring Book.
    His waist belt and sword straps are of white leather. His cap box, sword scabbord and shoes are of black leather. His trouser are white and his sash red.

  11. here's mine. (it's kind of embarrasing actually, it's from Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged... Trust me if I were to pick one on PURPOSE to be cool this wouldn't be my pick, but here goes:)

    "You don't know about railroads, lady," said a passenger. "There's not a signal system or a dispacther in the country that's worth a damn."

    She did not turn or notice him, but spoke to the engineer.

  12. Oh I'm going to do this one....Michele sent me back again dear Tracie...!
