A Meme

Okay I tagged you all for a meme. You can do it in the combox or in a seperate post, whichever you prefer.

This is what you do

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.

Have fun!

Several questions:
Can non-Chesterteens do it?
Do you physically teg people?
Can you tag yourself?
Do half-sentences count as full ones?
Can you use the dictionary?

Sure, if you want

Well you don't physically hit them, you just say you tagged them, and usually put a note on their blog

I don't know

I'm not sure... I suppose they could

Yes

Extracted from the spanish traduction of Chronicles, Vol. 1 by Bob Dylan:
Me contó cosas extraordinarias del novelista Stephen Crane, autor de "la roja insignia del valor". Al parecer, era un reportero enfermizo que siempre estuvo del lado de los desvalidos. Escribía historias del Bowery para revistas y en cierta ocasión defendió en un artículo a una prostituta que había sido cacheada por la brigada antivicio.

(From the spanish traduction of 'Storia di Roma' by Indro Montanelli).
Más después de haberlo despedido como "salvador y libertador" se pararon en pelillos por el hecho de que se llevó consigo un conspicuo botín de guerra en forma de obras de arte, y por que hubiese emancipado algunas ciudades de la Liga Etolia, donde estaban de mala gana. Y llamaron a Antíoco, último heredero de Seleuco, rey de Babilonia, para que les "reliberase". No se sabe a "reliberarles" de qué, visto que Flaminio les había dejado libérrimos.

Extract from Boswell's Life of Johnson: 'As to the history of the unfortunate person, whose memoirs compose this work, it is certainly penned with equal accuracy and spiret, of which I am so much the better judge, as I know many of the facts mentioned to be strictly true, and very fairly related.'

from "Jane Austen, Complete and Unabridged, Seven Novels"

"Do you not think they are something in Miss Morton's style of painting, Ma'am?-- She does paint most delightfully! How beautifully her last landscape is done!"

"Beautifully indeed! But she does everything well,"

I counted each sentence the characters spoke.

Sense and Sensibility, I believe! Or is it Northanger Abbey?

I did mine on CP - and excerpt from "The Count on Monte Cristo"
