123 Meme

I've been tagged by Margaret over at BooksPlease for this meme. This is an easy one.

All you have to do is:

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 who tagged you.

The book that just happens to be the closest to me is the one I just reviewed, Love over Scotland, by Alexander McCall Smith. The sixth, seventh, and eighth sentences on page 123 are as follows:

"But I won't get you a cup, Bertie, as we don't want you wanting to rush off to the little boys' room for a tinkle in the middle of the audition, do we? Bertie felt his heart stop with embarrassment. It was bad enough for his mother to say such things in any circumstances, but for her to say it here, in the middle of the Queen's Hall, with the eyes of the world upon him, was horror itself."

Poor Bertie!

I'm not going to tag anyone right now, but if you haven't done this one (which I hadn't) please consider yourself tagged. Thanks, Margaret.

Lisa, I have a quick, unrelated question. Do you still live at the same address? I know you moved to a new workplace, but I wasn't sure if you moved house, too. I'm getting ready to send your prize from the Year of Reading Dangerously drawing. I realize I'm behind, but better late than never, right?!

andi, I'm at the same address. Just moved jobs, thank goodness. I also sent you an e-mail just in case. Thanks!
