Resurrecting this cause it was awesome fun and totally and utterly random! ^.^ Let's have a go?

Rules:
* Grab the book closest to you. Now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write that sentence in the body of the message.
* Don't go looking for your favorite book, or the coolest one you have -- just grab the closest one.
