Page 161 Meme

Ok I spotted a couple of new meme's at Literary Feline's Blog.

One is Page 161. Grab the book that is nearest to you (no cheating), turn to page 161, post the text of the fifth full sentence on the page, post the rules and tag three people. Anyone can do this - so if you are interested - please do participate.

In an empty space between two houses, two men were discussing the sale of a pig.

That's kind of boring. But the very next sentence (sentence number 6 on page 161) is much more interesting!!!

In the background a pair of girls were lazily leaning against a door, their teeth chattering, their shawls allowing a glimpse of an ample low-cut bodice; one of them said to Baudolino: "What a pretty boy you are. Why don't you come spend Christmas with me and I'll teach you how to make the beast with eight paws?"

Baudolino by Umberto Eco.
