Tag!

I've been tagged -- And I think I'm the slowest one in the game...but here goes.

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 Angela's blog once you've posted your three sentences.

Nearest Book: COMPLICATIONS: A SURGEON'S NOTES ON AN IMPERFECT SCIENCE by Atul Gawande.

Sentences 6 - 8 on page 123:

"Desperate for a return to a normal life, he agreed to a delicate procedure: brain surgery that would destroy cells in a small structure called the thalamus, which was already known to contribute to such excessive stimulation of the hands.
Taylor had another big problem, though: for seventeen years, he had struggled with a severe panic disorder. At least once a week, while he was working at his computer terminal or was at home in the kitchen feeding a child, he would suddenly be overcome by severe chest pains, as if he were having a heart attack."

My oldest daughter's reading this nonfiction book. I may steal it from her.

Now I'm tagging five of you! These folks are it:
Holly at And Sew It Is
Ruth at Body Soul and Spirit
Natalie at Italian Moments
Beth at Grace Every Day
Spidey at Samwise Gamgee

That sounds like an interesting book! I'll play soon. I'm sneaking in a few moments of blog reading while company is here. :)

I read the book Complications not too long ago. It was an easy read and fascinating, too.
