‘Baaah’ — 23rd Page

I wasn’t going to, but I couldn’t resist! The instructions are:

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 23.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence on your blog along with these instructions.

Here’s mine:

There were enough exiles, it was reckoned, to support a journal in any one of these languages, not to mention the new floods that were coming in every week.

Does anyone recognise the book? It is not the one I am reading now, but the one I finished yesterday. Yes, I know that doesn’t help.
Hat tip to Matt

  2. I’ve seen you readed the Gaean Trilogy! I just LOVE these books! I started with the third one, continued with the second and now I am reading the first part. I didn’t mean to do but i just found the third book by chance somewhere 🙂 Its just great!!

  3. Saw your site and decided to do what you had suggested.

    Page 23, 5th sentence of which book….??

    “Tonight, three thousand miles from home, the accolade had resurfaced
    to haunt him at the lecture he had given.”

    Or was it fifth line??

    “If Boston Magazine could see me now.”
