Take the five nearest books and...
Book 1 first sentence
Book 2 last sentence on page 50
Book 3 second sentence on page 100
Book 4 next to last sentence on page 150
Book 5 final sentence


*grabs 5 nearest books* Like so! :)

When a dire situation is at hand, safe and sane alternatives may not exist. Far be it from my heart, the thought thereof. Through their community parks, recreation departments, and fine schools, children may compete in almost any sport. I had an emergency. Now I must write again.

Your turn -- :) Looking forward to reading these. I have a really busy week coming up, so if I'm not around as much, my apologies, I'll try and catch up when things return to normal.

"The Hegemony Consul sat on the balcony of his ebony spaceship and played Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C-shapr Minor on an ancient but well-maintained Steinway while great, green, saurian things surged and bellowed in the swamps below." -Hyperion by Dan Simmons
"Half an hour in the field, and I'm already stripped of all communication, and my director has no idea where I am." -Deception Point by Dan Brown
"'I did ask you to come to me here.'" -Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
"Gerald pushed his way to the front as they all moved out from under the dormitory's creaking roof." -The Reality Dysfunction Part 1: Emergence by Peter F. Hamilton
"'Let my successors solve those new problems, as I have solved the one of today.'" -Foundation by Isaac Asimov

Yea...I'm a Scifi/Fantasy nerd when it comes to books...I'm actually moving in 2 weeks so most of my books are packed up...those are just the closest 5 I left out in the offchance that I feel like reading seeing as how I have this week off (spring break woo!).

Woohoo! Spring break! :)

I haven't read any of these, but the excerpts have definitely made me curious about them.

Hyperion won the Hugo Award...so I'm expecting it'll be pretty good. I liked Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code so I figure I'll try out another one of Dan Browns books...Deception Point looks alot different but it should be good. Brave New World is about a "streamlined Eden" of the future...my friend recommended it to me saying it's really really good...I just started it but it seems really interesting. The Reality Dysfunction Part 1: Emergence is part of a six book series and was a random recommendation to me by a guy working at Barnes and Noble. Foundation was also a recommendation by the same guy...I've never read any of his books but apparently Isaac Asimov is a rather well known scifi author from back in the day...he wrote I, Robot which the movie was based on somewhat...and then he also wrote Fantastic Voyage which they made a movie on back in the 80's or something where hte people journey into the human body...
