No one “told me to do this” as I keep seeing other authors say. I just noticed them all doing it, and after trying it came up with an interesting result, so I thought I’d share. The instructions are…
- Grab the nearest book
- Open the book at page 23
- Find the fifth sentence
- Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions
If all else fails, tell the truth…
This is from Stark by Ben Elton. I borrowed this from my distant cousins in Ireland. It’s a good book, I’m just having a hard time getting engrossed in it where I read for 6 hours straight and I’ve been trying to read it for almost a year.

I didn't bother to post separately on this one. I choose to use pg 24, line five, because pg 23 was illustrations with captions.
The vast forests, laced with rivers and studded with lakes, provide matchless opportunities for wilderness experience, and the rock-ribbed coastline is justly famous for its fishing villages, resort areas and offshore islands."
Quite a sentence! This is a description of Maine, in "America From the Road / Reader's Digest" c. 1982. I got this book from my grandparents when they moved to a retirement community. It's a fun book, and the basis of our upcoming cross country drive vacation, which will culminate with a friends' wedding in Washington State.
