From Christopher Taylor of Word Around the Net:

Just for fun, a game going around various blogs.

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 161.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.

Don’’t search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Use what’s actually next to you, if there’s no book nearby, grab the first one you see. If it doesn’t have 161 pages… get a real book!

By Melanie Bettinelli’s sister via Melanie Bettinelli of The Wine Dark Sea, via Domenico Bettinelli of, via Gerald Augustinus of The Cafeteria Is Closed, via Christine of Ramblings of a GOP Soccer Mom, via kimsch of Musing Minds, via Lee Donoho of The Wide Awake Cafe, via michele of Reformed Chicks Blabbing, via Christopher Taylor of Word Around the Net. (It was fun to follow the links to the source.)

Our result:

And Ba’-laam rose up, and went and returned to his place; and Balak also went his way.

Numbers 24:25 from the Holy Bible published and placed by The Gideons (specifically, The Gideons International in India, New Delhi Camp).

And this because We were writing about this Gideons Bible We swiped.

    His derivate Akkadian name – Shem-Esh – was more explicit: Esh means “fire”, and now we know what shem originally meant.

    From The Twelfth Planet, by Zecharia Sitchin. Some other books were just as close though.
