That old "nearest book" meme

Would you believe GUD Issue 3 is the nearest thing at hand? ;) It is. :)

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next few sentences in your journal.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

This is from Matthew Weinman's "Hunt of the I-Don't-Knows"

Bryce the Scribe soundless-screams as they bear down upon him, "They know! They know!"

I hear tortured screaming as they solemn-surround him, "He knows. He knows."

Forest. Closer. Thirty yards. I still hear them chasing me, "He knows. He knows."

Hands begin grasping at muddy ankles.
