Thanks so much Beth!
Here’s how it goes.
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.
Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.
Pass this on to five blogging friends.
The book closest to me is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath since it's my current read and I have a habit of taking my current read with me all over the apartment (and when I leave the apartment, too).
And he looked so proud of having thought of this that I just stared at his blond hair and his blue eyes and his white teeth - he had very long, strong white teeth - and said, "I guess so."
It was only in the middle of New York a whole year later that I finally though of an answer to that remark.
I spent a lot of time having imaginary conversations with Buddy Willard. He was a couple of years older than I was and very scientific, so he could always prove things. When I was with him I had to work to keep my head above water.
There are some fairly long sentences in this book.
I'll tag the following (I hope I don't tag someone for this that has been tagged for it already):
Florida @ The 3R's
Alyce @ At Home With Books
misscz @ Babbling Book Reviews
Jan @ Jottings from Jan
