5, 56 Book meme

Kim tagged me for a new book meme that is going around. It’s called the 5, 56 book meme, I think.

Here are the instructions:

Take ten books, and transcribe the fifth sentence from page fifty six.

In keeping with the 5, 56 thing, Make sure that at least five books are fiction, provide five hints, and pass the meme on to six other bloggers.

Here goes:
1. “You do an’ I’ll wake up Atticus.”

2. “I looked around.” I’ll give line 6 as well: “Most of the remaining women were now having fights with men said to be their husbands.”

3. “You don’t have to spin a web.”

4. “Trouble was, they didn’t nobody walk n’more; seem like every dadjing one of ’em had a vehicle, which they drove aroun’ th’ monument like they was goin’ to a Democrat barbecue.”

5. “The young man drew up his slim stature to its full height and looked very enthusiastic, very proud, and very hot as he gazed at six foot odd of gorgeousness, as represented by Sir Percy Blakeney, Bart.”

6. “For Paul, all of life is to be lived out in the presence of God with an eye to pleasing Him.”

7. “And they would be transformed as well, from self-confident men into humble servants who would live to serve others with the gospel for the glory of God.”

8. “Yet the African-American preacher brought with him a perceived integrity and trustworthiness rare among the white preachers.”

9. “Wisdom is more than merely attaining or collecting facts.”

10. “When the Spirit comes, it is the Lord himself fulfilling the promise to build his church.”

1. This author only wrote one book. And it’s still paying her bills.
2. This author coined “the Jazz Age.”
3. This author is often called the “Christian uber-blogger.”
4. Looney Tunes created a parody of this story, starring Daffy Duck.
5. This book is considered an essential book on missions.

And now I must tag 6 bloggers.
1. Lisa
2. Shawnda
3. Jane
4. Kelly
5. Loraena
6. Shannon

I’ll share the answers tonight.

And here they are:

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
3. Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
4. Shepherds Abiding by Jan Karon
5. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
6. Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges
7. Humility by C.J. Mahaney
8. On Being Black and Reformed by Anthony Carter
9. The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment by Tim Challies
