123 Book Meme

This is an idea that I was tagged with by the Llama Herder. It is simple- A meme is an idea and/or a topic. Or something. Google it or something if you don’t get it. Here’s the gist of it.

(1) Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating! (2) Turn to page 123. (3) Find the first 5 sentences. (4) Post the next 3 sentences. (5) Tag 5 people.

"He simply said, I'm Bennet, and exhibited his voltmeter. It didn't work. Bill got that puzzled look on his face and asked, Could you tell me where I know you from?"

This is from the book Good Benito by Alan Lightman. The book's description is:

Bennet "Benito" is a yound scientist who seeks solace in the precise and irrefutable laws of physics, only to find that he cannot escape his own humanity. But he is about to discover love, betrayal, and a whole spectrum of mortal phenomena. Soon he will be forced to face the unpredictable, everyday reality he evades- and to learn from it.

It is a really good book but you have to get used to the author's lack of punctuation when quoting people. Once you can get passed that and used to the format it is a really quick and enjoyable read.

I now tag Jason and Spoon.

Sorry Ryan, my blog world is even more ingrown than yours is...
