This week’s popular post on Facebook has been “It’s International Book Week! Grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence in the comments below. Don’t mention the title. If you repost this, copy the rules as part of your status.”

After a two second search on Google, we can see that there really isn’t such a thing, but it’s still something fun to do and promotes actual, real-life, tangible books!

A few of our ‘grabs’ (do they mean the fifth sentence as in the 5th line or the actual fifth sentence?! We went with the fifth line…):

  • “On a family farm, the open spaces, the place to raise a family, and the community, all come as part of farming.”
  • “An isle beside an isle she lay…”
  • “The man-hunter which climbs trees and drops down on his prey.”
  • “…taking a cold bath and a long walk with an empty stomach…”
  • “…cows, the sheep, and a whole flock of geese and hens – everyone indeed except the cat, who had suddenly disappeared just before Napolean ordered the animals to assemble.”

Can anyone guess what books any of those lines are from? Two of them are extremely obscure…
