Funny, easy little tag. I love books, and I was glad this one was the closest. (It's not as good as Kell's quote, but it's the best I've got.)
Here are the rules:
Find the book closest to you with at least 123 pages.
Turn to page 123
Find the fifth sentence
Post the next three sentences
Tag 5 people
"The door was opened by Bunter, who seemed to expect her and showed her at once into a sitting-room lined with bookshelves. There were some fine prints on the walls, an Aubusson carpet, a grand piano, a vast Chesterfield and a number of deep and cosy chairs, upholstered in brown leather. The curtains were drawn, a wood-fire blazed on the hearth, and before it stood a table, with a silver tea-service whose lovely lines were delightful to the eye."
From "Strong Poison" by Dorothy L. Sayers--my favorite of all mystery authors. Oh--my favorite. (Plus, I just love those British spellings--"cosy" anyone?) I recommend anything by her, except "The Floating Admiral" which was a combination affair with all sorts of mystery authors each contributing a chapter. Not a good idea, in my book (no pun intended).
Anyway, to tag 5 people. . . I've seen this all over, and I don't know who hasn't done it. Mags or Tris, April? Have you done this? Didn't I just tag you and wouldn't you like to just strangle me?
