What'cha Readin'?

Becca posted this and I thought I would try it for a lack of something better to post about!

Here's what you do. . .
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 & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.

I'm not tagging anyone...just post a comment if you play along so I can come read yours! :)

"Maybe, but the train might derail, and then you'd be in a pickle," the sheriff replied.
"If Joey Garza's after you, you're in a pickle anyway," a lanky deputy named Ted Plunkert observed.
"If it was me, and I was driving the dern train and I seen a pile of rocks and though Joey Garza had piled it up, I'd pour on the steam," the deputy added.

Yep, I finished Lonesome Dove and couldn't pass up the next one. It's kind of embarrassing, reading old man westerns! But it's exciting - and somewhat comical! It's different than the historical romance stuff that I usually read so I guess I'm taking a break from the norm!

Wow, that is quite the change! I have about 5-10 books I need to read but I just haven't been in the reading mood. You'd think w/feeling so sick I would be but I'd rather just lay there.

This is what I remember from reading Lonesome Dove (and maybe it's not even accurate) but some woman was scalped rather graphically near Elmira (Kansas?) and that's about it! I was scarred by that! =) (I read it when I was probably too young and had nightmares for ages!)

Like the new look! Looks cold there too from your pics!
