"Garion moved quickly, his feet avoiding almost on their own the windrows of years-old dead leaves and the fallen twigs and branches which littered the floor of this ancient forest."

- Seeress of Kell by David Eddings (Book 5 of the Malloreon).

(The nearest book is one of Hairy's, but I've read it before (many years ago).)

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.
