5 Book Meme

I’m finding there are some of these that are really fun! This one is called the 5-Book Meme, where you grab a sentence from each of five books and turn them into a paragraph. Here’s my paragraph:

The back of the table captain’s cream-colored evening jacket had just turned away when Stephen Hopkins leaned across the secluded corner booth and kissed his wife. All of Jambudvipa became confused and agitated, as dark as smoke, with meteor showers burning in all directions, and divine kettledrums resounding in the sky. “Who the hell do you think you are?” Sully twirled a forkful of linguine. “May you be as tormented in your death as I am in my life.”

I’m going to have to do this one regularly, because it just cracks me up. The five books I used are:

  1. Step on a Crack by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge (to be read)
  2. Buddhist Scriptures edited by Donald S. Lopez, Jr. (reading)
  3. Firestorm by Rachael Caine (to be read)
  4. Nobody’s Fool by Richard Russo (reading)
  5. If You Can’t Say Anything Nice, Say It In Yiddish by Lita Epstein (reading)
