1-2- Three Tagged

I was tagged by three bloggies on the same day with this tag:
Neeku Satish Jaggu
Honestly I am not reading a lot these days except some magazines. So Neeku - I dont have any architectural books that I read on a regular basis....
Few week back g-man eluded to a book 'kafka on the shore' by haruki murakami - this reminded me to read the original Franz Kafka - the author.
If interested here is an online version in PDF of one of his few completed works A Short Novel: The Metamorphosis
So just in time for the tag I received the book yesterday that I had ordered :
The Metamorphosis and Other Stories - Franz Kafka

Now the Tag Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (since it just arrived - it was the nearest one)
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

So here's what it says...
I stood all ready to go. but the horse was missing - no horse.
My own horse had died the night before from exertions of this icy winter.
My maid was now running around the village trying to scrounge up the horse, but it was utterly hopeless.
I knew it.
Now the 5 people I would need to tag -
Any 5 people who read and are interested can take this up from the blogroll....

I didnt understand the meaning of this tag yet... or as aneri said... ki har cheez ka jaroori nahi hai koi matlab ho!!!

Cheers!!!

Satish Bolla said...

sounds interesting. tell me how the book is.

so, u need a horse. i'll find one for u? but u know how to ride????

gunj said...

wat a tag....seems purposeless to me!

aneri_masi said...

hahahaha :)
I am just imagining this scene...

Hero ekdum new clothes pehenke, perfume maar ke, date pe jaane ko ready. But no car. Well, car is there, but it is snowed in, and wouldn't start...its winter you see. And this modern day hero has no maid, so he calls the rental car agency to arrange for something.

Hmmm...now that I set it in this day and age, it doesn't sound so funny :)

Neeku said...

Ceedy: Thanks for doing it :) .... the book seems interesting ... I think I might get it this summer for leisure read..!

@Aneri: haha... funny interpretation :)

Hiren said...

1. how can one travel on horse if the weather is icy winter ... which I suppose imply lots of snow :)

2. arey yaar apna ghodha mar gaya hai toh thoda shok manao ... bahar ghumne ke liye nikal pade dusre hi din :p

ceedy said...

@gunj

the purpose I guess is to share what books one reads

ceedy said...

@aneri

see this little tag and few lines made you creative..... so its worth doing this tag...

bechara hero and usme suddenly barish and a song sequence you forgot :)

ceedy said...

@neeku

No problemo!
But mind you this is not a leisure read...try out the story I have linked here or read it in B&N before buying it....

ceedy said...

@pavi!!!!!

ceedy said...

@buzzz

shanks and you already are rolled here!

ceedy said...

@jaggu

yeah we need it with temperatures soaring into 100's

ceedy said...

@impressionist

so that book sales go up and people know what each other are reading....and maybe find another bloggie with similar tastes

ceedy said...

@sutta

read it - you will like it....

and the mastermind that churns out such tags is probably a book company employee

ceedy said...

ceedy said...

@g-man

ceedy said...

Ravi said...

Hi buddy :)

Sorry for not being a regular on your blog network, pal.

Its just that nowadays am totally tied up with office work + long working hours, so hardly any time left for "blog socializing"!

Today had some free time, so thought of dropping by and I must say, your new blog theme is absolutely RoCkInG :)

PEACE! This word comes to my mind when I look at that white bird in the back gound.

It also signifies the fact that you're a calm, focused person who also happens 2 be a nature lover (just like me!)

Keep it up dude :)

Take care!

Cheers!
