This meme is hosted by Storytime with Tonya, and it offers a peek into books that just happen to be nearby.
Here’s how it works:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

In more realistic moods, Edward thought he should find a proper job, teaching history in a grammar school and making certain he avoided National Service. p. 56
What book did you find close by this week? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
