Book Meme

This is for Jenni over at Miller Time...

Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Okay, the nearest book of at least that length is.... Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

This is what I found after sentence number 5...
"He came back with the record's slipcase, which he handed to me. The record was called Cat House Piano. It was of unaccompanied piano by Meade Lux Lewis."

Not as earth-shattering or as noble as Jenni's choice, but it was the closest book, and one I am currently reading (been on a Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. kick for some reason).

Now I will give you a bonus Meme, and pick another book that is nearby.... Lisey's Story by Stephen King.

This is what I found for this book...
"That wakes her up most of the way,because it scares her. What is he saying? That he wants to break up?"

Wow, that is pretty lame as well. One more chance, this one comes from Skeleton Coast by Clive Cussler.

Sure to be some action, at least I hope so....
"'I can feel it.' Juan turned to his friend, catching his eye so there would be no misunderstanding. 'Do you remember what I told you just before we took on those two guys from NUMA headed for Hong Kong harbor?'"

A little better, with mostly dialogue. So which one do you think you are more apt to read? Any? All? None?

Now for the fun part, who do I tag?

Why no one, of course.

It's a freebie.

So enjoy.
