My second tag "BooK Meme"

Few days ago I was tag by CDP to do the Book Meme. I love books and reading so I was very glad to do it. My selection random ended up to be an Italian book; and because it’s not fair for my English readers, I also picked up “The Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett a book that I’m reading at this time.
Here are the rules for this meme:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

I did both books and you can try to figure out what the Italian one means. Go to: babelfish.altavista.com to find the translation.
“La Gita a Tindari” by Andrea Camilleri

Page 123, 5th sentence:
...si allenavano per quando sarebbero diventati grandi.
Next 3:

..o forse non c’era manco bisogno che crescevano proprio il giorno avanti, a fela, era stato arrestato quello che I giornali avevano definito un “baby-killer” appena appena undicino. Uno di quelli che si erano messi a parlare (Montalbano non se la sentiva di chiamarli pentiti e tanto meno collaboratori di gistizia) aveva rivelato che esisteva una specie di scola pubblica dove s’insegnava ai picciliddri a sparare e ad ammazzare. I pronipoti di don Balduccio quella scola non avrebbero avuto motivo di frequentarla.

The Pillars Of the Earth
Page 123, 5th sentence:
So it’s just a traveling knight or a tinker servant, nor the villagers.
Next 3:
…Then on holy day, when people come from all every over the country to hear the services in the cathedral, we gather farthings galore. It seems to me we might man the bridge on holy days only, and give you a fire out of the proceeds” said Philip. Paul looked anxious.

I’m tagging who ever will be my next new 5 blogger friends.

You could always tag random people, the key to it is to leave a comment on thier blog saying something like "Hey that was great and I just tagged you."

Probably should do that.
