My Book Meme

Here are the rules:

1. Grab the book closest to you.

2. Open to page 123, look down to the 5th sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Include the title and the author's name.
5. Tag 3 People.

The book I grabbed which was right at my elbow was The Plot Against America. Here are the next 3 sentences after the 5th sentence on page 123:

There were the bosses and there were the bossed, and the bosses usually were bosses for a reason -- and in business for themselves for a reason, whether the business was construction or produce or the rabbinate or the rackets. It was the best they could come up with to remain unobstructed --and, in their own eyes, unhumiliated -- not least by the discrimination of the Protestant hierarchy that kept ninety-nine percent of the Jews employed by the dominant corporations uncomplainingly in their place.
"If Jack was alive," Monty said, "the kid wouldn't have got out the front door." (The Plot Against America by Philip Roth)

Okay now I have to tag 3 people...
