Was clicking around various people’s comments’ names that led to links, and found this book meme that seemed interesting, and decided to give it a try. The rules are simple:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
So, I opened the closest book around me, which has the most incomprehensible plot ever written and got this result. I’ve simplified it somewhat, since it was previously unreadable:
"A firm chewy candy. Carapace: a protective case or shell on the back of some animals (as turtles or crabs). Carat: a unit of weight for precious stones equal to 200 milligrams. Caravan: a group of travelers journeying together through desert or hostile regions."
I’m probably doing something wrong, since the closest book on my desk was a dictionary.
