1 2 3 Book Meme

Tagged by Fridge. So here goes:


  1. Grab the nearest book (that is at least 123 pages long).
  2. Open to page 123.
  3. Go down to the fifth sentence.
  4. Type in the following three sentences.
  5. Tag five people.

The three sentences are as follows:

“Why did the crowd riot that night? How could a piece of music move a crowd to violence? This is The Rite’s secret.”
–Jonah Lehrer “Proust Was a Neuroscientist” (2007)

I haven’t started this book yet. It’s sitting on the bedside table, along with ten other books in the queue (Obama’s latest, “The Kite Runner,” “Freakonomics,” “Think,” “The Lovely Bones,” “Krakatoa,” “This Is Your Brain on Music,” “The Futurist,” and “Apathy…and other small victories.” I think the last title best explains why I’ve been such a slow reader as of late.

I’m not tagging five people. But I will tag Christina.
