Book Meme

Via :

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I don’t usually do the meme thing, but I happened to have a book on my desk so it took so little effort… only one chapter to go!
