international book week

was September 23d, and I missed it, but I’m going to join in on the fun ANYway!  I found this over at Ayestria’s blog:  http://ayestria.com/2012/09/23/grab-a-book-and-quote/ 

Grab a Book and Quote!

Posted by Ayesha in Blog Life, Inspiration September 23, 2012

This happened on Facebook last week.

It’s international book week. The rules: grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence as your status on the bottom. Don’t mention the title. Copy the rules as part of your status.

This is the quote I have: “The older girl entered so fully into the spirit of her own aloof compliance that she felt beyond reproach.”

I guess it’s no longer international book week, but it was fun to see all the quotes that my friends added and to wonder what book it came from.

So, page 52, 5th sentence of the only book I have nearby …  “Insull believed that because of the ill feelings engendered among Edisonians by the mergere, and because Insull had, in the end, favored the merger, propriety prevented his profiting in any way from it.”

So come on, share!
