Nearest Book meme

"dribbling violation: steps, traveling, walking"
Flip Dictionary, Barbara Ann Kipfer. Writer's Digest Books, 2000.

* Get the book nearest to you. Right now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write this sentence - either here or on your blog.
* Copy these instructions as commentary of your sentence.
* Don't look for your favorite book or your coolest but really the nearest.

(My quote probably would have been a lot more interesting if the nearest book to me hadn't been a reference tool.)

I caught this meme from The Travelin' Librarian. Pass it on. And if your nearest book is a juicy novel (or not), post your sentence in the comments section (if you feel like it).

Great line! What's the book?

The horses line is from:
Here & Hereafter by Ruth Montgomery

"Kenshin enacted a quick series of controlled rolls, ending each roll with with his right knee solidly placed on the ground in his ready position, and approached the enemy head on from the left, slashing the gigantic man's shoulder in a single stroke with his sakabato."
~Rurounki Kenshin-Voyage to the Moon World by Kaoru Shizuka

Ha! That sentence sounds like a transcript of a video game. Why would you approach an enemy with a series of identical (and thus predictable) rolls? Is the whole book this painful? I will probably have to borrow it for my reading, er, pleasure.
