A Tag fwom Blue and a Covew Pictoowe


My Sweet Hooman fwiend Blue tagged me(akshually Mommi is going to help me with this, cause i mostly eat books instead of weading them hehehe)

1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
2. Open it to page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.
4. Then invite 5 friends to do the same.

THE WENCH IS DEAD by Colin Dexter

p123...."When as a boy, he had been shepherded around various archeological sites,Morse had been unable to share the pasion of some fanatic drooling over a few(disintegrating)Roman bricks. Even then, it had been the written word, rather than the tangible artifact,whick had pricked his curiosity, and promoted his subsequent delight in the ancient world. It was to be expected, therefore,that although Lewis's quite extraordinary discovery was to prove the single most dramatic break-through in the supposed case, the sight of a sad-looking pair of shrivelled shoes and an even sadder-looking pair of crumpled knickers was, for Morse, a little anti-climatic. At least, for the present. As for Christine's offerings, though, how wonderfully attractive and suggestive they were!"

I would like my following fwiends to take this challenge..


Archie and Agatha

Sophie Brador



hope you do this challenge ..we'll get a peek at what you'we Eat..um I mean weading, hehehe

now fow my covew

I'm hoping to develop a fowmula which will make suwe all fuwwkids stay healthy and pain fwee

most hoomans only see this as an oppowtunity to make tons of dough, , that's why they put me on the covew of Fowtune magzazine..

I see it as an oppowtunity to make evewyone have a gweat life..and if fuwwkids awe healthy, they can get fuwwevew homes mowe easily, and evewyone has mowe money to adopt them cause they don't have hooge Vet bills..I think this is a vewy gweat weseawch pwoject!!

Absolutely fantastic cover! We will do your challenge immediately. Muzzer loves her book for today, and thinks lots of other muzzers will too!

Oh Asta. That is a wonderful project. I hope that you are able to make the formula. That is an awesome picture on the cover of Fortune. I am so very proud of you.

Blue said...

Hi Asta!

So you're reading a detective story set in my home city of Dreamingspires... what a neat coincidence!

Great cover!

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Asta, I have another coincidence. My mom is reading The New York Trilogy, by Paul Auster. Gee, isn't that your home town?

She just updated my blog a few minutes ago, so next time, she will post those sentences. Thanks for thinking of me!

Nice cover shot!
