A Favorite Meme

Being the book-lover I am, I can never pass up a chance to do this meme when I see it floating around the blogosphere...

The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

First, you must understand that crowded on, in, and all around my desk are books.  Many, many books.  The same can be said for the side of my bed and my nightstand and just about every square inch of available space in our apartment.  I love books.

Just to my right I saw two books I recently received (one, The Light Bearer, ordered from Amazon and another, The Monk, borrowed from my mother) so I decided to grab The Monk by Matthew Lewis, which was first published in 1796 and has been re-released as an Oxford World's Classic with an intro by Stephen King.  Here we go:

My grief was inexpressible.  As soon as its violence abated, I resolved to return to Strasbourg, to throw myself with my two Children at my Father's feet, and implore his forgiveness, though I little hoped to obtain it.  What was my consternation when informed, that no one entrusted with the secret of their retreat, was ever permitted to quit the troop of the Banditti; That I must give up all hopes of ever rejoining society, and consent instantly to accepting one of their Band for my Husband!
