(( I know! They're awesome :D I've read all of them, including the prequel (New Spring) and they are VERY good. People didn't like the middle, more political ones, but I loved the depth and complexity they gave the world...and Memory of Light (the last one)...oh my. It was awesome. :D I envy you. You have a hell of a read ahead of you :D ))

"Why are the folks out there looking so secretive?"

-August Strindberg, Master Olof (classic drama, both the play that launched Strindberg as a major writer and the first modern stage piece in Swedish)

I recall that when I was a kid, the local public library in the quarter of town we lived in had a large number of novels by Upton Sinclair - I never read any of them, what impressed me was their bulk, the width each of them would take up on the shelf. Every one seemed to be 800 pages or something...I wish I'd had one of those to consult for this thread.  ;)

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.
