Playing tag again - This time it's books!

Kara at Eskimo Kisses has tagged me for a Book Meme!

This is how it goes:
Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages). Open the book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the next three sentences. Tag five people.

Near the RMH is a Salvation Army store, which we visited several times. One of those times I bought a few books. For the most part, I'm a big believer in using the library, but there are just some books it is better to own.

One book I bought was Charlotte's Web to read aloud to Dale. So far he seems to like it, and does great for about a chapter at a time.

And that's about all the reading I've been able to manage in the past several weeks.

So. From Charlotte's Web, pg 123:

"Is this true?" he asked. "Is this appetizing yarn of yours true? I like high living, and what you say tempts me."
(Templeton the rat, after being told a long list of goodies he would be able to find to eat at a fair.)
I tag:
Lisa (Simple Journeys)
Kristin (Can I Decide Later?)
Michelle (Five Little Wolfs)

Once again I seem to be a little short on the number of people I tag in turn. *sigh* Who makes up these rules anyway?

And... what are you currently reading? Any good quotes? From any page?

I love Charlotte's Web. It was one of the first books I remember my mom reading to me. The movie came out before we were finished reading it and my Dad took me to see it. Needless to say I came home crying about Charlotte and my Mom helped to comfort me and then we finished reading the book!

I'm taking care of 4 sick children these past few days. The only time for reading was taken up with more Cow books. I don't think anyone is interested in how to help a cow in the birthing process. :)
We've read Charlotte's Web before and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'll let you tag me. This sounds like a fun tag! :)

And Charlottes Web is such a good book to read. You gave me a great idea. ;-)
