Layla Aaron posted this fun little game, and I thought I might contribute…
* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book 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.
Nearest book – Perdido Street Station by China Mieville (which was sitting on my desk after I got done with it)
Fifth sentence – Crematoria vented into the airborne ashes of wills burnt by jealous executors, which mixed with coaldust burnt to keep dying lovers warm.
Now do the same, and post it on your blog!
