A meme from Booking Through Thursday.
Today’s topic is “My brother-in-law turns 50 this weekend. So, in his honor, please pick up your nearest book or whatever book you’re currently reading, and turn to page 50 and then share the first 50 words with the rest of us. (Do feel free to round this off, to stop and start with complete sentences, though.)”
Nearest book: The Tough Guide to Fantasyland by Diana Wynne Jones
50+ words on page 50: “DANGER is everywhere in Fantasyland. You will be in Danger from the first step you take on your Tour, starting with the intruder with a knife on your first night, then running through ASSASSINS and DEMONS on to WIZARDS and bad QUEENS and finally the DARK LORD — not to speak of AMBUSHES in between and subtle Dangers devised by ENCHANTRESSES.”
What does it say about me that this is the closest book to my computer?
