This meme has been all over the place, and I’ve only been tagged in passive-aggressive ways, but I like it and will therefore join in.
Rules: Find the book nearest to you with 123 pages or more. Turn to page 123 and find the fifth sentence on the page. Provide the title and author, and then type in that sentence.
It was a tie between two books for me:
- The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan: “What thing so deserving, as to turn us out of the Way?”
- German Stories and Tales by Robert Pick: “These peaks are difficult to ascend, moated as they are by snow, now wide, now narrow, and the Bergschrund or rim must be compassed by a leap.”
So no great words of wisdom for you today, dear readers.
