Book Meme!

I got tagged for this meme by Tina from Life in the Lapadula House

Here's the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.

Ok, so I walked into the room with the most bookshelves and lucky you, I didn't manage to grab on of the millions of science textbooks or the English textbooks as I figured I would... but I grabbed out "The Dance House: Stories from Rosebud" by Joseph Marshall III. So here is the fifth sentence...
"Nelson wrapped a long scarf around his head, leaving a slit for his eyes. The scarf kept his head warm, but its main purpose was to keep the relentless glare of the glistening snow from causing snowblindness. Nelson was aware of this winter danger. Exactly as the sun reached the middle of the southern third of the sky, Nelson spotted the outer edges of town where smoke was rising from dark buildings in thin columns. The first half of their trek was nearly finished."

That was actually one of the most unique meme's I've seen... so now I must tag 5 others for this one...
Of course I will choose Nut Nut, because she probably has about as many books as I do!

Oh man. The nearest book? Chicago Manual of Style. I'm so sad. This is such a cool meme and I'm stuck with the Chicago Manual of Style (which I just grabbed right before reading my email because I needed to look something up, otherwise it would have been a much different situation.). Off I go.....
