The book meme-- I've been tagged!

Sue Eves (pixzzzart )tagged me for this one--
Thanks, Sue!
Haven't done one of these in awhile!

The rules:
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 post a comment to Sue's blog once you've posted your three sentences.

Mostly what I have sitting here are art books.
But I do have one!


My copy has a kind of ragged dust jacket, but the illustrations in this edition are lovely! If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the Oz books (there are dozens!) you owe it to yourself to find a few. While the movie was wonderful in its own way, there's so much more going on in the stories.

So:
"So that when Dorothy walked across the floor she stumbled over the bar, not being able to see it, and fell at full length. She was not much hurt, but in her fall one of the Silver Shoes came off, and before she could reach it the Witch had snatched it away and put it on her own skinny foot.
The wicked woman was greatly pleased with the success of her trick, for as long as she had one of the shoes, she owned half the power of their charm, and Dorothy could not use it against her, even had she known how to do so.
The little girl, seeing she had lost one of her pretty shoes, grew angry, and said to the Witch, "Give me back my shoe!"
"I will not," retorted the Witch, "for it is now my shoe, and not yours."

So, now I tag:

cocoskeeper  
fandoria  
darklingwoods  
saputnam  
tltrent  

(and sincerely hope they haven't already been tagged-- if so, don't worry about it!)

And I tag *you* if you're reading this and want to play!
