A Meme from Susan

Susan, of Patchwork Reflections sent a fun meme to try. Here are the instructions:

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
* Tag five other people to do the same

The two closest books at the moment are Where to Take Tea by Susan Cohen, and The White Robin, a novel by Miss Read (England's equivalent of Jan Karon).

"It's waiting for you to come,' said Mr. Willet gloomily, surveying the dark corner by the vicar's wall. Here, in the cold shade, slivers of snow lay under the bushes, undisturbed by the children. In this weather they rushed to nearby lavatories, and back again, at record speed, thankful to regain the shelter of the schoolroom and the comfort of the ancient tortoise stoves.

from The White Robin by Miss Read

Check out Bonnie, Susan, San, Byron, and Janet for more responses. Susan, this was fun! I think we should do this again sometime! I'm tagging Jan, Kerri, Alice, and YOU if you happen to see this post.
