Book Meme

I’ve been tagged by Eclectricity. It’s my first time being tagged, and I don’t have a clue what a meme is, but I’ll give it a shot.

Here’s the rules (although as I read some of the other sites, it looks like the rules take on a life of their own…):

1. Provide a list of the books you’re currently reading. I should probably try to make this look impressive, like I spend all of my time reading deep philosophical books, but I really don’t. Here’s what’s really on my end table:

1. John Grisham’s The Appeal (large print, I’m in denial about the need for bifocals).
2. The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly. Heart-Pounding, Jaw-Dropping, and Gut-Wrenching Moments in Buffalo Bills History. Mostly gut-wrenching.
3. Thrive: Standing on Your Own Two Feet in a Borderless World, by Mike Cook. See my plug for Mike’s book.
4. The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Become Extraordinary Performers, by Keith R. Mcfarland. Mostly to read about my own company, which is featured in the book.
5. Don’t step in the Leadership, by Scott Adams. Given to me by one of my employees. And I didn’t take it personally.

2. Pick up the nearest book.

3. Open to page 123

4. Find the fifth sentence.

5. Post the next three sentences.
From The Appeal:
‘It was mid-November, and red and yellow leaves were falling, twisting in the breeze, and covering the cabin, the pier, and the water around it. There were no sounds. The small boat motor was too far away.”

6. Tag five more people.

I’m tagging:
1. Mark Toth
2. Kevin Eikenberry
3. Nina Simosko
4. Ann Bares
5. Michael Wolfe
