23 Across, 5 Down

16 Apr, 2004 | EntertainmentGeneralTdp

Not wishing to miss out on the bandwagon (I don't like being left out), I thought I'd post my own:

  1. Grab the nearest book.

  2. Open the book to page 23.

  3. Find the fifth sentence.

  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

The outline of a man seemed to quiver in the light, the air was thicker inside it.

Saying where is came from is not in the rules, but I want to say where anywhere. The quote was taken from The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman, part the His Dark Materials trilogy and well worth a look.

And for purists, that sentence is the fifth because the first sentence on the page starts on the page before, and one of the sentences is joined by a semi-colon (;) which means it's actually two.

Just so you know.
