ye olde book meme
I was tagged for this book meme by Diane and Mompriest. So here goes!
Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Alrighty, the nearest book happened to be Rebecca Lee's debut novel, The City is a Rising Tide. (Amazon link here.)
Find Page 123.
Yep, I can do that.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Yep, I can do that too!
Post the next three sentences.
"Especially at sunset, I'll be able to read, and then pivot my head, and see out the window. Because when I read, I don't want the window right there in front of me, because it's too distracting, but I also want to be able to gaze off when I've enjoyed a passage in the book and I want to pause just to soak it in."
I tried to peer through the gloaming and see if Peter and Mr. Tetres were coming back soon.
Wow -- now there's someone who has given a lot of serious thought to optimal window placement for reading.

I think a lot of people have already been tagged, so I'll just pick one! I'll tag "PS".
