Book Meme

Anita at Prairie Dreams has tagged me with a Book meme...

Step one is to take the first book you lay eyes on that fits the rules. Not your favorite book, but the closest at hand:

The rules are as follows...
1. The book must be over 123 pages.
2. Find page 123 in the book.
3. Find the first 5 sentences.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag other people

Book: "Jacob's Journey - Escape from Communist Russia" by Herb H. Neufeld, Ed. D.

"Frank demanded, "Pour hot water in this tub and start scraping the hair off the face and head." I thought of running away, but I knew my brothers could easily catch me, and that would make matters worse. I started to scrape the hair, with tears running down my face while trying constantly to avoid throwing up."

Herb Neufeld lives in California. In 2002 he was in Wichita KS and told his riveting story that he has written about in "Jacob's Journey" at our Spring meeting of the Golden Wheat Chapter, AHSGR.

Zura - Thanks! Anybody that likes the lovely old graphics should take a look at the offerings at your blog. There's a few things I plan on going back to check out, like the fonts.

Hi, Peter! Your latest post sure is a mind boggler! You certainly have me stumped. Have fun with the book meme.
