Meme: Anna Karenina
Social Butterfly sent me a Meme a while back and today I finally sat down with a book to answer her calling.
So, what is a Meme you ask? A meme is like an internet chain letter, with depth. One blogger posts a topic or call to action, then tags 5-10 other people to follow suite and add to the ‘meme.’ I decided it may be fun to participate, especially since the book sitting next to me now is one I have been reading in phases for two years.
Here is what I am supposed to do:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
The book I have is Anna Karenina and I seriously have been reading it for about two years. It’s a fantastic book but long. Every time I start reading it I really get into it, knock out another 200 pages and then something else takes my attention. I am determined to finish it by the end of the summer.
Here’s my meme (and I’m not cheating like Social Butterfly 😉 ):
‘Well, what of it? I don’t understand…’
‘Maybe Kitty refused him?…She didn’t tell you?’
‘No, she told me nothing either about the one or about the other. She’s too proud. But I know it’s all because of that…’
The conversation is part of a story relating to Kitty a young socialite in Russia that refused a proposal for love, something not done during this time in history.
I suggest the reading if you have the time to devote to it.
