Tag! You're it!

I've been tagged by Beth, who was in turn tagged by Dr. Sardonicus, in a book-themed meme. Say *that* ten times, fast!

The rules are simple:

1. Find the nearest book.
2. Name the book.
3. Name the author.
4. Turn to page 123.
5. Go to the fifth sentence on the page.
6. Copy the next three sentences and post to your blog.
7. Tag three more lucky souls.

The nearest book to me at this moment is Clinical Anatomy and Physiology for the Angry Healthcare Professional by Joseph Stewart, MD. [Yes, I am at work. What of it? I've done all my work for the day and it isn't time to go home yet.] Turning to page 123, fifth sentence, I quote:

"The subclavian artery becomes the axillary artery at the clavicle. Near the head of the humerus, the axillary artery becomes the brachial artery. Importance: the brachial artery is the main blood-pressure taking artery."

A thrilling read, no? It is better if you can see the illustrations. This might have been more interesting at home with my collection of science fiction. On the bright side, at least the nearest book wasn't one of my physics books!

Now that I've done my part, it is time to spread the love. I tag NYPinTA, Lord Loser, and trinamick.

Oh dear. I'd better start unpacking my books, huh? :P

At least one of them! ;-)

Ooh, sounds like fun! I think I may start one of my own!

The fun thing about these memes is that they're educational, too!

fermicat said...

TWG - Yes, by all means! The more, the merrier.

dr s - Some more than others. By the way, thanks for adding me to your blogroll! I have returned the favor.

Beth said...

Well, I definitely learned something! That's a good thing. Thanks for taking up the "challenge." I knew yours would be interesting.

Another meme? Oh good lord...

NYPinTA said...

Haha! You tagged LL!

...and me... hey!

It's taking him a while to find a comic book that has a page 123... :P
