Thanks (I think) to Penny Morris who has tagged me on this Book Meme
A meme (pronounced /miːm/) consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another
The idea is to find your nearest book, open page 123, find the fifth sentence and post the next three. After that, tag five more folk and say who tagged you. I would have loved to be able to quote from the classics but the only book close at hand is Derren Brown's, Tricks of the Mind. So here goes
