OK, I’ve been tagged by meryddian. Here’s the job:

The Book meme:
1. Grab the nearest book. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
2. Open the book to page 123, and find the fifth sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
4. Tag five people.

OK, I’ll play – but I’m going to change up item #4. I’m not going to tag anyone, but if anyone would like to voluntarily post their own results, that would be a grand and fine thing.

My book is Unsolved Mysteries by Colin Wilson with Damon Wilson. Here’s the excerpt:

Hugh Gray, an employee of the British Aluminum Company, was walking on a wooded bluff, fifty feet above the loch, near Foyers. He had seen the monster on a previous occasion, and was now carrying a camera. It was Sunday 12 November 1933, a sunny morning, and Gray sat down for a moment to look out over the loch. As he did so he saw the monster rising up out of the water, about two hundred yards away.

On the other side of the glass, Hagrid was standing with his back to them, looking up and down the street. "Get under here, quick," said Harry, pulling his Invisibility Cloak out of his bag. "Oh-- I don't know Harry, " said Hermione, looking uncertainly toward Mrs. Weasley.

Thanks and welcome! I heartily commend your choice of material.
You have a most entertaining LJ. I do hope you're able to get back to Riga now and then, since I know what a challenge travelling must be for someone your age! Come back anytime!
