Random Book Tag

June 12, 2008

Finally something blog-able that doesn’t require too much work or thinking. 😛 So, CR passed me a tag and these are the rules –

1) Pick up the nearest book

2) Open to page 123

3) Find the fifth sentence

4) Post the next three sentences

5) Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

I’m reading 3-4 books now but I’ve only one book at arm’s length – The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Page 123 is Chapter 13, nearly the end of the book. [It’s short fiction.]

The first drawback was the fact that it was probably now a marked place and that certain precautionary measures had been taken in regard to it since the scandal at Olsufy Ivanovitch’s last ball. Secondly, he had to wait for a signal from Klara Olsufyevna, for there was bound to be some such signal, it was always a feature in such cases and, “it didn’t begin with us and it won’t end with us.”

At this point Mr.Golyadkin very appropriately remembered a novel he had read long ago in which the heroine, in precisely similar circumstances, signalled to Alfred by tying a pink ribbon to her window.

And you know what, I don’t think I’ll bother tagging anybody. Take it if you want to, though. 🙂
