Ok, well straight away I had a problem. I don't read books. I ALTER THEM!So while I have plenty of books I don't have any in possession that are both that size and still have page 123 intact! I tend to read articles and blogs as opposed to actual books. It suprised me to learn that about myself!
So this is what I have done, in true book -tag altereing spirit I have altered the book tag ever so slightly and dug out my absolute childhood favorite- Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I loved this book!
The cover says it was given to me in 1989 and I gifted it to my sister in 1994 with the note written inside that says " I know it's not new but it's really special ok?" Love Lisa xoxox
The book now belongs to my eldest daughter.
Ok, back to the tag!
Page 123 says 5 sentences down...
" Thankyou sir" said Jerry, "but I have only taken out a six days licence,* and therefore I could not take a fare on a Sunday, it would not be legal."
"Oh!" said the other," I did not know yours was a six days cab; but ofcourse it would be very easy to alter your license. I would see that you did not loose by it; the fact is, Mrs Briggs very much prefers you to drive her."
* The star is in the book and is accompanied by the note from the author- Six day's licence. A few years since the annual charge for a cab licence was very much reduced and the difference between six and seven day's cabs was abolished.
