I was reading My Marrakesh this morning when I stumbled upon this meme which she had put up on her blog. As usual, I couldn't resist tagging myself...
What you have to do is pretty simple...
1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, go down to the fifth sentence.
3. Post the text of next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Name of the book and the author.
5. Tag three people.
Alas! I realised in dismay that I was at work, which means the book closest to me might be an equipment catalogue... Now putting that up would have generated a free advertisement... (The truth is my table was spotless this morning, because we were forced to clear out the desks as the president (of the company) was supposed to visit us - that means even the manual was out of reach!)
Anyway, I just remembered that I had chucked a book into my bag a few days ago... so I guess that I'm in luck. Here goes:
They are probably arriving now. I left my uncle there and I must run back. Look here, if you were not such a fool, such a confounded fool, an infernal fool with strangers - you see I recognise your cleverness, but you are a fool, or else if you were not, you would come and join us, instead of wearing out your boots.
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Let's see... I haven't actually tagged people for some time, so maybe it's time to make a change again. I hereby tag Princess Shin, Julia Scissor, and Irene.
Everyone else is also invited to join in the fun. Just let me know :D
