Well, I discovered this meme here and decided, what the heck. The rules are as follows:
- 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 favourite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
And here is what I ended up with:
The early trading ports, where merchants held sway, seldom achieved ascendancy in the ancient world. (From: The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State by Frederick Engels)
And just to be more entertaining I will grab a book that isn’t in my stack of “school books” that would technically be closest if I wasn’t in class at the moment:
So, while she was curious, Anne felt her interest was intrusive and never asked him about his family. (From: The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell).
Everyone is tagged for this one. It’s fun. Do it!
(Don’t click the read more, there isn’t any more after this!)
