1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog 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 tried it. The book closest to hand: Cookies : the little guides (which is natch a cookie cookbook replete with photos.) There weren't 5 sentences; there wasn't even text, just a caption to a photo. Here it is:
"The merengue layer is spread over the hot brownie crust, sprinkled with chopped nuts and coconut, and baked until set and golden."
Intellectually stimulating, yes? I'll try it again some other time with a real book.
