Words Upon A Page, Tagged, Part One,

So, Johanna and I have been tagged, more than one time, for more than one meme.  I think it's about time we got started on them, don't you?

The first one is a book meme for which we were tagged by Emily and Amy and Julia.

Here are the rules...  

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

The book nearest me was my current reading material, Poirot's Casebook.  The story on page 123 was The Missing Will.  The fifth sentence...

I am not a great admirer of the so-called New Woman myself, and, in spite of her good looks, I was not particularly prepossessed in her favor.

6. "My business is of a somewhat unusual nature, Monsieur Poirot," she began, after she had accepted a chair.
7. "I had better begin at the beginning and tell you the whole story."
8."If you please, mademoiselle."

Johanna's also was a heavy tome of short-ish mystery stories, G.K. Chesterton's "The Complete Father Brown."

Sentence 5...
"Who is that?" cried Father Brown, stepping back with a hissing intake of his breath.
6.  "Oh, it is only that Hindoo humbug ," growled Harris; "but I don't know what the deuce he's doing here."
7.  "It looks like hypnotism," said Flambeau, biting his black moustache.  
8. "Why are you unmedical fellows always talking bosh about hypnotism?" cried the doctor.  "It looks a deal more like burglary."
                      Katie at The Fiddlers Nook
                     Olivia at Working with Eager Hands
                     Keri at Quaint and Quirky

And thus ends Part One....

Hey, Emma and Jo...

Just had to send you another quick note. ☺ I just now noticed all of the Eva Cassidy songs in your sidebar. I can't believe you guys like her, too! She is one of my favorites...such a beautiful voice. Her story is so sad, though. Every time I mention her to anyone else, they never, ever know who I am talking about. Too, funny!

You guys had better stop liking so much of everything I do...I'll probably begin thinking we just might be kindred spirits. :)
