Page 56


"Open the door, will yer?" cried the voice which belonged to the legs that had kicked at the door.

A little bookish fun to make your Tuesday a bit brighter — here are the rules:

- Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
- Turn to page 56.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The quote at the beginning of the post was my page 56 find — now it's your turn in the comments!
