I'd like to thank Sky Clearbrook for 'tagging' me with the book-you-are-reading shenanigans. It goes a little something like this. Take the book you're currently reading, turn to page 123, skip the first three sentences, then write down the next five, so, as requested:

"The hind part of their body was covered in multicoloured hairs that bristled and seemed coated in thin glue. The fat little creatures undulated blindly. The clerk saw, too late, a tattered invoice attached to the back of the box, half destroyed in transit. Any invoiced package he was supposed to record as whatever was listed, and send on without opening. Shit, he thought nervously."

This is from 'Perdido Street Station' by China Mieville, which I only started reading last night, so now I know that there appears to be a nervous clerk and some sort animal involved in the story.

Ok, I nominate The Jagster and Ron-Anymity.
