Bookworm meme

I know I just did a meme, but this one was too hard to resist...

Found browsing the stacks of slynn6776

1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. 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."

So I don't really wish I had the wings of an angel, but sometimes I wish I had the sweet voice of a thrush.
And then if I sang an Indian Love Lyric why thousands of beautiful beauties would harken and quiver and blush.
And it would be a treat to hear my rendition of Sweet Alice Ben Bolt.

-- "It's Snug to Be Smug" from Selected Poems of Ogden Nash: I Wouldn't Have Missed It

My husband left his book on my desk yesterday, don't know why. I love Ogden Nash, but that isn't my usual reading material! (But if he hadn't, the other closest book would have been the Bible!) Most of my reading material is scattered around elsewhere.
