Let's see where this goes. Could be interesting given the wide variety of books we all read: It's International Book Week. The rules: Grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52 and post the 5th sentence below. Don't mention the title.
Mine: Many people these days are making a living but they're not really making their lives.
P.S. If you're in little mode and the nearest book doesn't have 52 pages, then pick a page and pick any sentence, that Sam I am!
