I've Been Tagged - Book Meme

Gordo at Appletree has tagged me with the Book Meme.

It's pretty simple. Grab the nearest book that is at least 123 pages long, go to page 123, go down to the fifth sentence, and type the following three sentences.

The easiest book for me to reach was The Rough Guide to Taiwan. It just so happens I am contemplating taking a vacation there next year. Here goes:

"Taipei's scorching, humid summers make its shaved ice (tsua bing) stores essential pit stops. Ice Monster at 15 Yongkang Street is a Taipei institution, with massive plates of mango ice, kiwi, strawberry milk and other exotic fruits, topped with delicious homemade ice cream for NT$120-150 (daily 10:30 am-midnight). The Eastern Ice Store (Dong Qu Feng Yuan) at 38, Lane 216, Zhongxiao East Road Section 4 is the best place in East Taipei, with a small seating area and a choice of three toppings for NT$45 (daily 11 am-11 pm), while Yanji Ice at 38-40 Hankou Road Section 2 is a more traditional, no-nonsense shop in Ximending serving ice with delicious, authentic toppings such as thick taro, peanuts and corn: huge bowls cost NT$40-60 (daily noon-10 pm)."

I can never resist a book mind if I play along?

From Albert Camus' Lyrical and Critical Essays

"It runs contrary to what, in a crowd is an utterly Manichaen vision: there must be good and evil, the winner and the loser. One must be right if one isn't wrong. The result of this impeccable logic is immediately expressed by two thousand energetic lungs accusing the judges of either being bought or sold."

There ain't going to be an answer.
There never has been an answer.
That's the answer.
