Blog exercise (thanks to a fellow blogger)
  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
  5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
Here it is:

Slow Food: The Case for Taste by Carlo Petrini
Deep. Concerning. What does your book say on page 56?
