I've been tagged by K's book meme thread: The Book Meme.
It is hard to establish what the closest book is to me currently, because I'm not certain what defines a "book".
The Book 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 have to exclude House Bill No. 1 of the 2008 Regular Session as it does not contain five sentences on page 123. I have to exclude the phone book because page 123 consists of resident phone listings. Then, I have to use the oh-so-scientific method of reaching out my arms in opposite directions to determine which of two books is closest to me.
So, here we go:
1. Ground Transportation for the 21st Century, Dr. Frank Kreith and Dena Sue Potestio, 1999, The National Conference of State Legislators
2-4. "State governments can actively participate in the state's promotion of telecommuting for part of the work force, as well as implement telecommuting in state governments. An awareness of the advantages of telecommuting and its potential to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and fossil fuel consumption is an important step in the deliberations of state governments as they deal with transportation issues in the next century. [New paragraph] For telecommuting to work effectively as a traffic reduction measure, planning and policy efforts must be coordinated between various departments.
5. I hereby tag Jacob, Doris, EBeth, Steph T. and Big Dave.
