An infectious book meme (Or at least, I'm *told* it's infectious...)

"To create multiple renderings with different schemes using the same view, create several identical views with different names."

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

Was asked to do this by someone. The first three books didn't match the assumptions in the instructions... oh well. I suppose I could write a long treatise on why the effect is interesting as a matter of design and make it fascinating for myself, but I have work to do :( .

Oh, those first three books:

First book -- 120 pages (Drawing Figures)
Second book -- No page numbers (3DStudio Max manual)
Third Book -- No sentences (Dictionary)
