A Different Book Meme

I was tagged for this one by Cmerie at Catholic Wife and Mother.

Here are the rules:

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.


"I was no longer on the outside looking in. You can't live in Washington for very long without becoming cynical about politicians and their motives, but I've never doubted the greatness of a country in which a person like me could travel all the way from Pinpoint to Capitol Hill. I didn't have much time for sightseeing".

Taken from My Grandfather's Son by Clarence Thomas.

I think many people have done this one, but if you'd like to have a go at it, leave me a comment!
