Just saw this on Ex Libris. I haven't been tagged, but thought this particular meme was pretty neat.

Pass this along to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, not your favorite or most intellectual.

Book: The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles, which I have just started rereading and is right here on my desk.

"I don't think I shall drink it."

"What a fearful sissy you are! Stop complaining! I don't want to hear about it! I can't bear to hear any more of your talk about dirt and worms.
Don't drink it."

*Sigh* That didn't do this bleak, haunting novel justice.
