First, Amy's tag: a book meme.
This is how it goes: Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages). Open the book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the next three sentences. Tag
I am currently reading Written in Her Heart by Alan Maki. Ironically, the bookmark is on page 121. (And this quote has absolutely nothing to do with the story.)
"With little hesitation, Chummy darted forward and clutched the bread with his front claws.The squirrel sat on his haunches and nibbled away, five feet from James. Farther out, James saw Edgy moving in."

Here are the Rules: Post the rules on your blog, and then give your answers. List one fact about yourself for each letter in your middle name. Each fact must begin with a letter from your middle name. If you do not have a middle name, use your maiden name(or create a middle name).Once you are tagged, update your blog with your middle name and your answers. At the end of your post, tag one person for each letter of you middle name. Leave them a comment on their blog telling them that they have been tagged, and that they need to come read your blog for details.
My middle name is Lynn.
