    *Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
    * Turn to page 56.
    * Find the fifth sentence.
    * Post that sentence
    ** Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST book.


    BONUS: Guess the book the previous poster used and put it in the Title field. :D

    The second part of the game was to guess the previous posts books.
    So here's my guesses.



    "When that supply increases faster than the growth of the economy, the result in inflation."

    "The Audacity of Hope"


    "Imagine about 10,000 No. 10 fish hooks sticking out of an egg and you have it."

    "Hemorrhoids: the Untold story"

    [rofllmao] Nope - :lol: (and wiping the screen.)

    HINT: "Casada"

    Now then, your book is pretty obvious, as you said. The author is obscure, and if I understand all I think I know, it was written well after the fact based on oral history.

    Exodus 2:9. What else would a Pastor have close to hand?

    I'll add one more. It actually was a tie. I had 2 books next to me. This is from the second.

    "Freedom from corruption, greed, arrogance, and, most of all, freedom from those who put their careers above their country."

    I guess, in that case, that you could use the second closest book. :)

    i had to go with the 3rd one, no p56 on the 2nd.
    A prominent womam in riligious circles said, " All I wish is that the Mason and Dixion wall had been one hundred feet, high and one hundred feet thick, so that Shelhamer could never have gotton over it".
