The game is simple:
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open it to page 56.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
- Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
Results for me:

- Nikola Tesla: Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency.
Nikola Tesla is the most fascinating and probably one of the most forgotten inventors/physicists to walk the Earth. If you don’t know who he is, turn off your computer, your lights, etc, and throw away any fluorescent bulbs, and while you are at it, turn off your radio.
