I've been tagged by Miranda. I'm not really one for these pass-it-along-type of things, but like Mindy, I don't want to be a party pooper. So here we go.
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people
The nearest book was A Feast For Crows, by George R.R. Martin. It's the fourth and latest book in Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice series. N. and I both read all of the books in the series last year. I know that some people write off the fantasy genre, but these books are such good reads: well-written, epic, intelligent, and a little bit edgy. (Readers with delicate sensibilities might find some parts objectionable, so don't say I didn't warn you!)
So, with all that fanfare, here's the 5th sentence from page 123:
"Have a swift safe voyage, and take care of her and Aemon and the child."
(TOTALLY worth all of that build-up, no?)
As for tagging others, if you feel so inclined, consider yourself tagged!
