Tag! I'm It!

I know I've done this meme before, possibly more than once, but I've been tagged to do it again. So:

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.

And the results are:
Somebody who has to remember all the time what feelings are isn't going to be any good at hiding them. Tamsin looked at me for a long time without saying anything, while I was apologizing and apologizing for mentioning the Other One at all. Finally she smiled, and it was all right, like that, the same way it had been absolutely, horribly wrong a minute before.
That's from Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle. I don't know what it's actually talking about, though, as I'm only on page 24.

And I tag no one. Exercise your free will (or your convenient illusion thereof, depending on your philosophical viewpoint).


  1. How is the book so far? Long long time ago I read "The Last Unicorn". I recall it being pretty good.

  2. It's all right so far, but I'm only a couple of chapters in and not a lot has happened yet, so I haven't really formed much of an opinion.

    I re-read The Last Unicorn a couple of years ago, and thought it was rather wonderful. The Inkeeper's Song is pretty good, too, and I loved A Fine and Private Place.
