Ok, this is like the sixth time this meme has turned up on my flist when THE PRETENDER’S CROWN was the closest book to hand, and so I am finally going to give in and play:

Grab the book nearest you. Right now. Turn to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LiveJournal. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

“For nearly a month she’d slept in a dull grey cell and said her devotions five times or more a day; had worn a scratchy woollen shift and knelt on cold stone, and had heard achingly little of the world beyond sturdy convent walls.”

From THE PRETENDER’S CROWN by C.E. Murphy, due at fine bookstores near you on April 28th, 2009.
