Book Meme

I've been tagged to do the book meme by I'm still Me. This one's lots of fun!!

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more.

The book is Coffee with Michelangelo by James Hall.

Find page 123.

Ok, did that.

Find the first 5 sentences. Post the next three sentences.

But Bramante, who wanted Pope Julius' last ducat to be spent on the new St. Peter's, scuppered the project, and since then various popes have monopolized my time, ensuring that in each revised contract the tomb shrunk in size.

The final version in San Pietro in Vincoli is dominated by the statue of Moses, which I finished painstakingly. There would have been many more statues like it, were it not for the impossible pressures.

Tag folks. Well, as many people have already done this meme, I'll leave it to you to tag yourself if you're interested. This was really neat!
