My friend Steve tagged me in this little game a few days ago; it seemed like a fun way to peer into the bookshelves of some of my blog friends. But the rest of you can also feel free to post your participation in the comments!
Here’s the drill:

- Open to page 123.
- Find the 5th sentence.
- Post the next three sentences.
- Tag five people.
And here goes:
