Page 123 - Fifth Sentence

Short of time? Check.
Short of inspiration? Check.
Still trying to blog once a day for a whole month? Check.
Does that mean it’s time to resort to a meme? You damn right!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

The book is Profoundly Erotic: Sexy Movies That Changed History by Joe Bob Briggs. And here is the sentence:

“The only good news was that the rest of the casting went smoothly.”

The closest book, In the Groove: Vintage Record Graphics 1940-1960, didn't have five sentences on it... The second closest book, The Wave Maker by Tim O'Brien, has:

"When it was time for Shamu to make her trip to Ohio on the Orc Ark, it was the first time anyone had ever tried to transport a whale across the country and the first time an Orca ever took a ride in a jet."

Oh man! Your one was much better than mine!

(And now I'm frantically Googling for In the Groove: Vintage Record Graphics 1940-1960 because it sounds awesome)

It is an awesome book... I love it. I keep it beside my monitor for design inspiration. Were you able to find it?

AKA said...

I did find it! I absolutely love the cover of the book, and it makes me sad that the heyday of the LP has passed. I used to moan about the size of cover art on CDs, but now I guess even that will fade away with the ascendance of music downloads. I love Jim Flora stuff too. I've added it to my Amazon wish list. Thanks for the tip, Jennifer!
