123.5

A new book meme circulating around the sphere is going by the name “123.5,” and its rules are these:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

Here's mine:

"Did you enjoy it, darling?" said Nick.

I'm very nearly done and plan to post something about when I do. It took a long time to get into it but now I finally care about the protagonist a little and am enjoying it.
