Tina tagged me.

Here are your rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences here.

5. Put the meme and answer in your journal, tag five people and the madness continues.

I don’t usually tag other people, but I’ll play along. The nearest book (that isn’t Japanese) where I write is my collection of Oz books I inherited from my maternal grandfather.

“Each beast was bigger than an elephant, and three times as long, and there were a dozen or more of the creatures scattered here and there about the cavern. On their bodies were big scales, as round as pie-plates, which were beautifully tinted in shades of green, purple and orange. On the ends of their long tails were clusters of jewels.”

From L. Frank Baum’s The Tin Woodman of Oz.
