Tagged: Page 56, Sentence 5

I've been tagged by Ann-Kat from Today I Read to participate in this MeMe.

1) Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, and turn to page 56.

2) Write out the fifth sentence, along with the following two to five sentences.

3) Pass this along to five blog friends.

The closest book to me, which also happens to be the one I'm writing a review on right now, is The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery.
Olive always told Valancy all the details of her love affairs, from the days when the little boys in school used to "persecute" her with love letters. (sentence 5)

Valancy could not comfort herself by thinking these affairs were mythical. Olive really had them. Many men had gone mad over her besides the three fortunate ones.

"I don't know what the poor idiots see in me, that drives them to make such double idiots of themselves," Olive was wont to say. Valancy would have liked to say, "I don't either," but truth and diplomacy both restrained her. (The next 5)
I'm not tagging anyone right now, because I'm short on time. But if you'd like to join in, feel free!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Brie. :-)

  2. Thank you, Jace! Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

  3. To determine which sentence is the fifth, we first need to know what is considered the first sentence. Would it be the first sentence that _starts_ on page 56, or would it be the one that starts at the bottom of 55 and carries over to 56?

    Assuming the latter, the 5th sentence on pg 56 is: "Unlike other operating systems, Linux does not need to be installed on the same hard drive; pieces can be installed on different drives."
