Fun with tagging...

I've been tagged by A Novelist:

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.
6. Tag five people.

First of all, I picked up River Café Two Easy by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers. The only thing on page 123 was a photograph. SO I put it down again. Underneath it was Japan - Lonely Planet:

The gallery hosts print, ceramic and fine art exhibits by Japanese artists; hours vary; admission is free. Turn left at Isetan and walk down to Yasukuni-dori. A lane on the oppostie side of the road leads to Hanazono-jinja, which nestles so close to Tokyo's most infamous red light district that its clientele can make for some interesting people-watching.

The nearest book to me is American Psycho. Sentences 5 to 7 on page 123 look like this:

"I find myself walking through the antique district below fourteenth street. My watch has stopped so I'm not sure what time it is, but probably ten-thirty or so. Black guys pass by offering crack or hustling tickets to a party at the Palladium."
