Participate in this fast and easy book meme – or follow the trail and find out where it started (if find out, let us know!).
Here are the rules:
* Get the book nearest to you. Right now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write this sentence – either as a comment here or on your blog (link back to us by replacing the trail link with this blog’s link).
* Copy these instructions as commentary of your sentence.
* Don’t look for your favorite book or your coolest but really the nearest.
For me, the book is 2008 Newbery winner Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!. The quote comes from Jacob during a conversation between Jacob and Petronella about Christians and Jews and lenders and borrowers. Sentence 5 on page 56 reads “I thought of my God.”
Why is this book the nearest? I’m working on pulling audio and lesson plans from it for an upcoming Learning Magazine e-newsletter where it will be featured along with 2 other titles. Look for it if you receive their newsletters!
