Book tag...

First off, Nicole tagged me with this in a blog entitled "Tagging a Bibliophile? That's Crazy!" this was the very same blog in which she proceeded to tag me (another Bibliophile) for the same activity.
to complete this tag you must:
1. pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. turn to page 123
3. find the 5th sentence
4. post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. tag 5 people

"He understood that she was heading for the chapel -- of course she would be heading for the chapel! -- so he instructed some of his soldiers to find the matron mother" (R.A. Salvatore, Siege of Darkness)
This part of the book is very interesting. It comes at a time in the Forgotten Realms world of Faerun when the Gods of the land are having a fight in the Pantheon and have been cast out of it (to wander the realms in avatar -- human body -- form), this is called the Time of Troubles. Anyways, the he in the quote refers to Berg'inyon Baenre and the she refers to the first appearance of Lolth (the evil dark-elf deity and spider queen).

Other books I am currently reading:
Book of Mormon: Nicole already did, oh well...

The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene: "Once experimentalists measure some 19 parameters, and theorists input these numbers into the quantum field theories of the matter particles and the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces, the subsequent predictions of the theory regarding the microcosms agree spectacularly with experimental results."

Christ and the New Covenant, by Jeffrey R. Holland: "'For behold, he said: Thou art angry, O Lord, with this people, because they will not understand thy mercies which thou hast bestowed upon them because of thy Son.'" (quoting Alma 33:16)

The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas: "Forward, Planchet, forward!"

Oh yeah, I tag...Nicole, TJ, Jodi, and Heidi, no one else reads my blog that I know of and of these four, three have already done the tag! Sheesh!!

kinda weird commenting on your own post, but I just wanted to comment on the new artwork on the Drizzt novels, isn't it amazing! Finally cover artwork that does the book justice. Thanks Todd Lockwood for the amazing art.
