Not again!

Yep, another meme. I’ve been tagged by Literary Acquisitionist. But this one’s simple: turn to page 161 of the book closest to you (no cheating) and copy out the fifth full sentence. Then tag three people. The book closest to me happens to be Congenial Souls: Reading Chaucer from Medieval to Postmodern, by the marvelous Stephanie Trigg. For a less random sample of her writing, check out her wonderful blog.

His primary institutional affiliation was with the Working Men’s College in London, founded by J. M. Ludlow and C. E. Maurice in 1854, where he taught English grammar and literature and where he spent much of his time organizing its social program.

You’ll never guess who she’s talking about here. I’ve included a picture of The Riverside Chaucer, because, aside from the fact that it’s very pretty, Trigg opens her book with a fascinating discussion of this image.

And I’m tagging:

    Meme is done! I have to say, my sentence wasn’t very interesting-I was tempted to cheat! But I resisted. 🙂

    Nice work. A much more serious sentence than my book allowed.

    How excitement! One of the nicest things to happen to me in the blogosphere. Ever.

    I’m glad it made you smile – a nice coincidence! Great book, by the way.
