123 Meme

Tagged by Fabriz. I was EE-ing, with limited success.

Instructions
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

The following is from Sophie’s Choice by William Styron.

‘But this made it all the more fun for her, a pleasant game, when at lunchtime she entered one of the glorious delicatessens of Flatbush and shopped for her Prospect Park spread. The privilege of choice gave her a feeling achingly sensual. There was so much to eat, such variety and abundance, that each time her breath stopped, her eyes actually filmed over with emotion, and with slow and elaborate gravity she would choose from this sourly fragrant, opulent, heroic squander of food: a pickled egg here, there a slice of salami, half a loaf of pumpernickel, lusciously glazed and black.’

I count only three full-stops. Five sentences brought me halfway down the page. I think the third sentence in the segment quoted was the longest on the page, though.

I tag: Yam, Philip, Patrick, Jing En, Amos.
