    Grab the closest book...

    ...and turn to page 56. Skip down to the 5th sentence. Type it here.

    Dont go hunting around looking for a cool book or a fun book, just whatever book is the closest one to you. Put the title and author in parentheses.

    At twilight,as the 37 was surfaced on a calm sea and in low visibility,the first lookout on the bridge reported that there was an island close at hand on the starboard side.

    But the best I could manage at the time was the business at Mare Street Registry office over Hackney way, and a bit of a knees up at Mums place.
