There's a reason I don't do these memes often - the computer's in the office and the non-reference books are scarce - I'd be quoting the Macquarie Thesaurus, or "Essentials of English Grammar" or some such. But you got lucky today (maybe *g*)
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences (in your own journal!).
5. Tag five people.
1. Ken Follett "The Pillars of the Earth"
"I gathered he was well known, by the people he was going to see, as an authorised representative of the earl."
"What was his name?"
"Francis," Philip said stupidly, and wanted to bite his tongue.
Right, that was boring...
5. I don't usually tag, so - anybody?
