Okay, I was tagged by Margo to do this, but it gets tricky for me because most of the books I'm reading now are ARCs or galleys and they specifically say not to quote from them before they are released as the content may change. So I grabbed the nearest book that is not a galley.
You want to know what I'm reading? The "tag" says to turn to page 123 of the nearest book, go to the fifth sentence and post the next three! Then tag five more people.

This comes from The Betrayed by Lisa T. Bergren and was published by Berkley Books and released in 2007.
Now I'm tagging Trish Perry, Deb Ullrick, Angela Breidenbach, Laura Williams, and Cara Putman.
