1. Find the nearest book: ok - next to the bed..... hadda pick one (i have about 4 or 5 there) so i picked the one that i thought would be most interesting
2. Name the book & the author. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
3. Turn to page 123. got it
4. Go to the fifth sentence on the page. Copy out the next three sentences and post to your blog. But I was unable to understand the differnce, if there actually was any. It seemed to me that the difference did not lie in the actions of the one or the other, but in the church's attitude when she judged this act or that. I remember the discussion with Umbertino.
*** ok - that just sound just not so interesting at all. It's a hard book to read but it's absolutely one of my favorites. For those who haven't heard of it, it's a murder mystery set in an Italian abby. It's SOOOO good. If you do decide to read it, i suggest reading it with "The Key to "The Name of the Rose"" since it was translated from italian to english. The "key" gives you a background of the time and explains a few of the going ons at the time and how things worked at that time and then it translates some non-english pasages in the book to help clear up some confusion while reading it. You can still read it and get the full effect of the book without having the "key" and knowing the translations but if you are like me, it drives you crazy to know what they are sayng!
5. Tag three more folks. hmmmm.... ok.... I tag.... Lisa (cause i KNOW you read), Kim (just to get your butt moving into starting your blog! LOL) and Kerri (cause you just don't update yours enough!)
