Tag, I'm it!

Polski3 (see blogroll) has seen fit to drag me into a Meme (I forgive you Polski ;), and what the hell, I have a minute.

The rules are:

1. Pick up the nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people and acknowledge who tagged you.

Here goes:

Nearest book to me: 1776 by David McCullough (paperback edition).

And sentences 6,7, and 8 on page 123 say:

King's College, west of the Commons, one of the largest, handsomest buildings in town, had been taken over as an army hospital, once the library books were removed, lest the soldiers burn them for fuel. For the troops from New England a roof overhead of any kind seemed the height of luxury, and New York, however changed, a center of wonders. Joseph Hodgkins decided, "This city York exceeds all places that ever I saw," though he found the living "excessive dear."

I see nothing has changed in New York in over 200 years!

I suck at tagging, so I tag any blogger who loves to read!

Good Day to You, Sir
