What's My Line?

Here's a teaser I found on LibraryThing; wanna play?

Grab the book closest to you. Now*
Go to page 56.*
Find the 5th sentence and post it along with the name/author*
Don't go looking for your favorite book, or the coolest one you have - just grab the closest one.

Here's mine:

"With her words cold upon my heart, I have come to believe it would serve some purpose - whether personal or historical I cannot say - if I were to set down in my own words the story of how I cam to be a Saint and marry five wives."

from The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff.


  1. Oh mine is thrilling. "Isabelle nodded."

    hahahahahaha! That should entice you!

    Amy and Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout.

  2. Mine is: "Be alert for any attitudinal shifts." Funny, really, as with a 9-year-old in the house, I'm perpetually on the alert for any attitudinal shifts!

    It's from The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.

  3. Ooo The Artist's Way is an awesome experience.

  4. Mine had a picture of a Great Blue Heron on it. Very patient bird.


Awe, go on! Throw me a bone here!
