The idea is that someone tags you and you have to type out the next 3 lines after line 5 of page 123 of the book you are currently reading. Cwm Goch Chronicles in Perth tagged me for this.

This is a novel called "Twenty Chickens for a Saddle" about growing up in Africa....These lines are about the (small plane) flying abilities of the father....I am skipping down a couple more lines to start:

..."several horrible thuds and bounces followed, then the plane clung to the ground with a soft, screeching sound as we skidded to a jolting stop at the far end of the runway. Magazines, papers and old shopping receipts flew past us towards the front. "Astronauts have a word for that, chaps" grinned Granpa "It's called re-entry."

Is that it? Maybe we could then have a discussion about these lines or what people read or something? Or is that just me being obtuse??
