The "Nearest Book" game. - July 12th 2009, 11:58 PM

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.

Fires of War- Larry Bond

"Anything going on?" Ferguson asked, adjusting his night vision goggles before heading down the hill.



(Yeah I know its random. But it could get fun )


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

I have an archeological bible. It rocks.
It's all split up, not sure what's a sentence
"To find favor in your eyes, my lord," he said.

Then A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Not sure which book is closer.
"I hate that asshole, so don't worry about me telling anybody anything." .


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

"With these heavy counts against it, it may come as a surprise to find that there are contemporary Indians, thoroughly familiar with Western alternatives, who defend caste - not, to be sure, in its entirety, especially what it has become, but in its basic format."

"The World's Religions," by Huston Smith. That was the section on Hinduism. It really is a fascinating book.

The difference lay in the scope of the research, which, in applied studies, centred upon problems of practical importance, and in the commitment of the research of the worker, who expected to place his skill and knowledge at the disposal of the nonscientist and "practical man."

Some say the world will end in fire Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great And would suffice.
