I've Been Recursive Meme'd
Here are your rules. (You've seen this one before, this is just a 'recursive' version)
- Pick up the nearest book.
- Open to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the next three sentences.
- Tag five people and post a comment to Garunya's blog (your tagees will post to mine, etc.) once you've posted your three sentences.

It is a tale of old magic whose meanings are disputed but related with such visual brilliance and emotional force, reading it is like experiencing some thrilling nightmare. Its leading feature is description."
From The Mystery of King Arthur, long ago borrowed from my friend Wendy's parents. (Okay, technically speaking, the closest book was the manual for FrameMaker / Mac OS 9, but that's all sealed up in the box, and seemed like a pain to get at.)
