Book Meme

My friend Tracey, over at Life in Sugar Hollow, participated in a book meme and invited any of her readers to join in. Being the book lover that I am, I am happy to take part.

Pick up a book of at least 123 pages
Open the book to page 123
Find the fifth sentence
Post the next three sentences
Tag five people

I first chose Of Mice and Men, but, alas, it only has 118 pages. So I went with another favorite, Naked, by David Sedaris.

"As long as they were young, he was more than happy to pick them up; but the old ones--forget it. We would spot some stooped and weathered granddad standing beside a beat-up suitcase and call out, "There's one! Dad stop." Ignoring our request, our father would drive past these men as if they were painted cutouts advertising a restaurant called Tramps or Hobos."

Just reading that passage again makes me want to read the entire book, which includes one of my favorite stories, "You can't kill the rooster."

I tag: Sherri at Desperately Seeking Sherri, my lovely cousin at Wild Cayuse Creek, Sally HP at Sex and the Knitty, and Hyperreflexia. Blog it out ladies!
