I keep stumbling upon the most interesting blogs by way of other bloggers. Missy lead me to Storytime with Tonya and Friends and this fun meme. It is kind along the lines of Teaser Tuesdays with MizB. The rules are
* 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.
The closest book happens to be "Benny and Shrimp" by Katarina Mazetti because I was about to start writing up a review but was blog browsing first to wake up my brain. I came across this meme on Missy's blog and had to try it. Turned to page 56, found the 5th sentence and almost spit my tea all over the keyboard. I just had to do it.
"Suddenly she took hold of my damaged hand and started nibbling the fingerless knuckles."
Your turn. Grab the closest book and see what you come up with.
