Hat tip to Eagle and Elephant for a fun exercise:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth full sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.
Here's my contribution, from the book I'm currently reading:
Was it just an act of kindness to a relation whom the old king had ignored?
~ The Princes of Ireland, by Edward Rutherfurd
This book is on my nightstand, which qualifies as "next to" me. I'm now on page 594, with 176 pages left to go. So...what are you reading?
