Book Game

Via Mr. Hassel's Long Underpants via Emergency Doc. This game is apparently attributed to a person who calls themselves Texas Biscuit.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
Here is mine:
Mulch forced himself to stay calm. This was his big chance. Maybe he could find a nice hell hole and settle down for a while.
~ Artemis Fowl The Eternity Code, by Eoin Colfer.
Go on, you know you want to do it! You can post your particular excerpt in the comments here if you like, but at least have a go and post them on your own blog.

I picked up The Elements of Style. There is no page 123. Whew!

There's another link to a test at Doc Shazams/Hasslepants. I took it. Didn't do as well as Doc.

Have a great day Punk!

Meg, that's weird...do you mean the book is actually missing a page 123 or it simply is not that big a book? Thanks for checking anyhow!
Kat, I rekon a dictionary is great to keep nearby. We often simply brwse through a dictionary simply to see if we can find new and interesting words. That is how i discovered one of my favourite words, Transmogrify when I was younger.
