Book memes for a monday morning

on Monday, May 18, 2009

* 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 was chewing on the peculiar fact that both these photographs were pointing outwards from the desk, when a connecting door opened, and I was suddenly in the presence of Spencer."

Note to self: when I eventually get down to writing a book, remember to collect all the memes flying around and place interestingly exotic and/or misterious phrases in all the right spots.

Extra cookies if anyone can guess what book it is.

Update: No cookies for all you guys looking up the book on Google! As penitence you now have to go and read the book! Tssk tssk
