A book meme...

Here's a little something different for your Sunday blog reading, I've been tagged by NY$pender to do a meme!

The rules are:
a) Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
b) Find page 123.
c) Find the first 5 sentences and read them.
d) Post the next 3 sentences.

The closest book at hand is the one I'm currently reading, The Female Brain, by Louann Brizendine, M.D.

Being this emotionally sensitive has its pros and cons. Jane, a normally brash and courageous person, told me that she could not get to sleep for hours after seeing an intense action flick. In a study on the effects of frightening films, women were more likely to lose sleep than men.

This book is definitely an interesting read; I've found many of Dr. Brizendine's finding to be a bit unsettling/surprising. This little excerpt is from a chapter titled Emotion: The Feeling Brain where she explores the idea that women are more emotionally sensitive than men.

Now, I'm going to tag Beauty Blogging Junkie, Shopahaulic and Cheap Chica!
