Just for fun

Crys did a book meme and left it open for others to do, so I thought that since it’s Friday and i'm home alone i'd give it a go. Here are the instructions:

  • Grab the nearest book
    Open to pg. 56
    Find the fifth sentence
    Post the text of the sentence on your blog with these instructions
    Don’t dig for your favorite book, or the most intellectual one. It has to be the closest one.

So here's mine (it took a while finding a book with over 5 pages and with more than 2 words per page!!) This was taken from 'A treasury of Fairy Tales. A majical collection of timeless stories':-

' Then, his cruel wife had a terrible idea: "tomorrow at sunrise, we take Hansel and Gretel very deep into the enchanted forest and leave them there".

Hhhhmmmm, have had the very same thought many times!

I'm a bit gutted that I didn't 'think' to pick a book that just might mak me look a little intelligent, but I'm afraid that any book that would fit this is safely packed away and the shelves are littered with *Harry Potter* *Horrid Henry* and anything with princesses and fairies!

Ha ha, that's awesome! I work from home so I actually have some books near my computer desk, but if those books where not there I probably would have had a book similar to yours :)

Who's reading?
