Cindy Stephens posted this on her blog today and I thought it looked like fun so I tried it.
Grab the nearest book.
* open the book to page 56.
* find the fifth sentence.
* post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions.
* don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
The closest book to me was "English Prose and Poetry". Zack found it for me in an antique shop.
"And poured it into his wounde;
That made his veynes full and sounde.
And tho sche made his wounde clos,
And tok his hand, and up he ros."
There you have it. A little poetry from Geoffrey Chaucer. Poor fellow. He must have made VERY poor marks on his spelling test. ;-)
