OK, this is an interesting enough excersize...even though I don't really know what it's supposed to accomplish. My friend, Tom Loughlin, did this and I think it's kind of interesting. He said it should be "tagged" along to friends but, instead, I think I'll just let you decide if it's interesting enough to put on your own blog. Please share your results with me if you decide to do this.
- Find the nearest book.
- Turn to page 123.
- Go to the fifth sentence on the page.
- Copy out the next three sentences and post to your blog.
- Name the book and the author.
Here is my result:
"A golden-yellow owl flew above us, heading in the same direction as we. I felt as if the central part of me floated up from my lathering filly - as Fortunata had floated in bubbles - and became the owl. Athena, I thought, burst from the skull of the god-king, remembering my childhood book that Cesare'd read to me about her."
The book is called Lucrezia Borgia and the author is John Faunce.
Hmm...not as interesting as I thought it was going to be.
