I’ve been searching for a good way to ask people about what they’re reading these days. I love the act of reading and I love learning about, finding, buying, displaying and finally reading books more – something the piles and piles of books around my tiny BUT LOVELY studio can attest to.
Anyway, I saw this little game below on FabFeminist‘s facebook page, and thought I might try and adapt it for my blog.
- Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
- Turn to page 56.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post that sentence along in the comments section below. Don’t forget to include the title of the book and the author.
I hope you’ll take a moment to share your current read!
I’ll go first:
