Easy as (Page) 1 2 3

Enc tagged me ages ago to do this fascinating game...

Here's how it works:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

It took me a while do do it because reading books hasn't been top on the list lately... Ah, literacy!

So, my book is Lust in Translation: Infidelity from Tokyo to Tennessee by Pamela Druckerman.

Here are the sentences:

About a year after beginning the affair with Danielle, he finally left the therapist he'd been seeing for six years. "I solved the problems," he explains. "The problems were marriage and sex."

See how adultery can save you some cash :-)

I'd be intrigued to see what the following bloggers may come up with:

Imelda Matt
Super Kawaii Mama
Strawberry Kitten
The Coveted

and anyone else who wants to have a go...


  1. I think I want to read this book!

  2. It's interesting, E, but I'm not blown away by it (I read a lot of these "anthropological" non-fiction books discussing taboo human behaviour. Wait till I'm done and if it's really spesh, I'll send it to you. K

  3. OMG!!!! so ok, I am reading a book but I needed to change gear and went to the secondhand book store and snatched the campest book I could find. The don't come much camper than Judith Krantz's late 70's masterpiece 'Scruples'. Here it is...

    Billy took to fucking Jews with an enthusiasm even Jessica couldn’t have matched. Jews were like Pairs, she thought. A new world, a free world, a foreign world that was all the more exciting for being forbidden.


  4. IM: I LOVED Scruples. I stole it from my aunt. Can you say hot and bothered???
