Library Lovers' Month and a Meme

February is Library Lovers' Month!!! Who knew?! This site shows some great ways for you to show you love your library, including sending postcards and e-cards, and a page that tells you exactly what you can do for your library! Thanks to Life and Times of a "New" New Yorker for posting about this!!

Also, this meme is floating around the library blogs. I first saw it posted on @ the library, and even though I have not been officially tagged, I decided I wanted to play, too.

Here are the rules:


1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pgs.)
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people

I have been debating starting Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi, so this is the book we are going to go with (that, and the real book that was nearest - The Memory Keeper's Daughter, has nothing but the year 1970 on page 123).

I could symnathize with LAPD; the media were blasting the department almost daily. On the other hand, it would be nothing compared to the public response if we let Susan Atkins walk off scot-free. I couldn't forget Susan describing how it felt to taste Sharon Tate's blood: "Wow, what a trip!"

Um, that's a little chilling!! Yikes.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but please feel free to steal this for your own blog!! Be sure to leave a comment with me if you choose to do this - I'd love to see your results, too!!!

I love Helter Skelter. Such a disturbing (but good) book!

Happy Library Lovers Month!

I did this on my blog as well, stolen from the effing librarian. It's kinda fun! My friend also played along in my comments.
