I noticed this blogging meme over at Quatrefoil’s place and thought I’d give it a try. The results are surprising.
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open it to page 161.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

And the sentence is:

That sentence doesn’t make a lot of sense by itself, but the next one adds all the context you need:
