(Sorry guys about the messed up link on my previous post about it!)
I just got back to Kolkata from North Bengal and have plenty of pix and a beautiful update. While all this is still simmering in the kitchen, here is an appetizer :
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 LJ 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.
Here is what the Beaver is reading (who would have thunk?)
-"Seems a strange place for it."
-"The Earl's Son, Charles, could not attend Cambridge because of the plague, ans so Wilkins and some other members of the royal society are there to serve as his tutors."
(Quicksilver, Neil Stephenson)
I have not gotten this far in that book (I am not reading it consistently)- so I have no idea this would come up.
Although since i am also in the middle of reading the "Traite d'Atheologie" (also available in English here) by Michel Onfray, it is an amusing coincidence.
And now you know. Your turn to disclose !
My guest map is wonderful ! And you'd all be wonderful to post, all of you lurk mode readers!
Thanks and may the winds of Fate blow your way !
