“Books open your mind, broaden your mind, and strengthen you as nothing else can”

I was tagged by Jyotsana and I liked it because its about books :)
Getting an opportunity to read a book is really I feel a blessing as its very busy schedule these days where I am not able to specifically dedicate any time for books but passion for reading always finds it – isn’t it?

The name of the book is “The Worldly Philosophers” by Robert L. Heilbroner.

On page 123 the 6th line onwards is as:

“But no one would shirk work, for each would do what he best liked. Thus the problem of dirty work was solved by asking who liked to do dirty work. The children, of course. So there would be Little Hordes who would go off gaily to the slaughterhouses or to mend the roads and have the time of their lives. And for the minority of children who shrank from dirty work, there would be Little Bands who would tend the flowers and correct their parents’ bad pronunciation.”

Okay friends so the tag is about the book that you might be reading – go to the page 123 and skip the first five lines and please quote on your post from the 6th line onwards.

I felt this tag is good in a way where after reading few lines it might generate the curiosity in reader’s mind and probably they will grab that book to read …;)
Nice way to make one read isn’t it?

Friends who are reading books can join this tag…;)

Enjoy the weekend friends
