I just picked this up from TieDyeJudy's weblog so I'm passing it on...
Closest Book To You -- How to play:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note in your BLOG.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual... Use the CLOSEST.
Okay, well the closest book to me is Black Out by Lisa Unger, a terrific novel I'm nearly finished with. The fifth sentence on page 56 reads:
"Just hang in there, Opie," my father said calmly on the other line."
How interesting is this?! That's exactly what I needed to hear at this precise moment!
