Ok, it's real simple;

Rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.

* Turn to page 56.

* Find the fifth sentence and post it here along with the name of the book and the author's name.

* Don't dig for your favorite book, what you think might be the coolest book, or the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST book within reach, no matter what it is!

I'll get it started, (the one I grabbed when a friend sent me the challenge)

"There are plenty of guys who will squat in the marshes and tempt fate to bite them, and sometimes, it surely does." From the book, "The Contented Poacher - Tales and Recipes from an Epicure in the Wilderness" by Elantu B. Veovode

And the sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard it:and the men grieved and were very angry, becuase he had done a disgraceful thing in Isreal by lying with Jacobs daughter, a thing which ought not be done.

Novel idea (pun intended) !

Fundamentals of Human Behavior, Henry D. Hill

Page 56 is the end of a chapter, so there are only two sentences on it.

Here they are:

There is therefore a tendency for literate (abstract and nonobjective) and post-literate cultures to develop varying forms of religious beliefs that project some form of immortality for human beings. No comment is made or intended, however, as to the veracity of any religious beliefs or practices, which are beyond the scope of this inquiry.

No-one, therefore, could say their decision was mistaken, and any attempt to go back on what had been settled was seen as a challenge to the family honour.

No, he's a a professor at one of my colleges. He usually doesn't get "Hank Hill," though, usually it's "Henry Hill" from Goodfellas.
