Book Game

Taken from Amazon.com


Saw this challenge game on Gayles blog Sparkle Jars .. .. I've seen it before and it sounded like a fun thing to do today....

Page 56 Challenge

Grab the nearest book.*
Open the book to page 56.*
Find the fifth sentence.*
Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions.*
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"It was built open-slatted to let air move through it. Candlelight shone yellow through the slats until I was near enough for the sound of my footsteps to be heard inside. Then the candle was blown out and only the moon shone down. I opened the door and and stepped in. Shelves on one side filled with brown crockery. Milk jugs sitting up to their shoulders in cool water.. The spring rose up from its deep source and smelled of wet earth and the stones at the center of the world."

Thirteen Moons by Charles Frazier (Cold Mountain)

I've not read it yet but it looks like it'll be a good one.

You do look like Lily Tomlin!

Very poetic words. Those apple pies of yours are poetry of their own kind!
