123 pages meme

I’ve been memed (can I make that word a verb?).

  1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
  2. Find Page 123.
  3. Find the first 5 sentences.
  4. Post the next 3 sentences.
  5. Tag 5 people.

Unable to break the structures of state power, post-structuralism found it possible instead to subvert the structures of language.

Since, I am never sure which of my friends have already participated in the meme and since I do not have very many friends to begin with, I will forgo #5. If you are reading this and have not been tagged for this meme, consider yourself memed.
