1. Grab a book near you.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

Walked over to the shelf and the first book my hand hit was The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.

Luckily I have just bought a book by Dave Stone so I can offer up this gem from page 123 of Slow Empire, which is sitting next to my computer:

In the opening of the wagon's canopy, clutching the now lit lamp in a tentacle, was a slimy, obloidular creature, regarding them severely and quite angrily by way of four eyes on the end of directionally independent stalks. The alien horror of it was slightly diminished by the fact that it wore a floppy nightcap with a tassel.
"Is what time this monkey-hominid buggers go sneaking round like big sneaky thing, and no doubt try to place scrufulous and grabby paws on person's valuables?" it said. "Is trying to get head thing, what is specially made for purpose, down for sleepy log-sawing kip, yes?"
