That annoying book meme

I really hate memes like this, but since everybody else an their frickin' dog has done this (and I guess it all started here), here you go:

1) Grab the nearest book
2) Open the book to page 23
3) Find the fifth sentence
4) Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions

For me, the nearest book is one I'm selling on eBay, the Corel Draw 9 User Guide:

Click file, New, From Template.
OK, that sucked, let me see if any of these other books have anything useful on page 23. The next closest books have chapter/section page numbers (1-3, 4-2, etc...) and I don't feeling like doing the math, so what else can I find here? [looking around my office]

OK, here's a coherent sentence from The Hip Pocket Guide to HTML 4 (a book that you'd think I'm not actually using, looking at some of my sites):

The text is rendered by browsers in many ways, such as a tool tip over graphics.
This is referring to the "TITLE" attribute.

Wow, that sucked. Carry on.
