Jeane at Dog Ear Diary (I love her blog name, don't you? ;o)), tagged me for a meme that asks you to grab the nearest book to you and share three to six lines from page 56, starting with the fifth sentence. Since I'm reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and I just sat it down before checking the blog, it's the closest one to me.
"But for almost three weeks I had been interrupted in all my pathetic machinations. The agent of these interruptions was usually the Haze woman (who, as the reader will mark, was more afraid of Lo's deriving some pleasure from me than of my enjoying Lo). The passion I had developed for that nymphet--for the first nymphet in my life that could be reacted at last by my awkward, aching, timid claws--would have certainly landed me again in a sanatorium, had not the devil realized that I was to be granted some relief if he wanted to have me as a plaything for some time longer."
