I don't usually do "memes," but I like this one:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth full sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

I have two books side by side. So here are both:
"For he looked every minute of a hundred years old!" (Leon Bloy, The Woman Who Was Poor)
"'But I must take it off over there.'" (dialogue from "Drinks in Helsinki" in Roger Scruton's Gentle Regrets)
And as Maxwell Goss says at Right Reason:
"Feel free to post your own sentences in the comments, readers .... It'll be fun to see what y'all are reading." You can do so below by clicking the comments.
