The Book meme:
1. Grab the nearest book. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
2. Open the book to page 123, and find the fifth sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
4. Tag five people.
OK, I’ll play – but I’m going to change up item #4. I’m not going to tag anyone, but if anyone would like to voluntarily post their own results, that would be a grand and fine thing.
My book is Unsolved Mysteries by Colin Wilson with Damon Wilson. Here’s the excerpt:
Hugh Gray, an employee of the British Aluminum Company, was walking on a wooded bluff, fifty feet above the loch, near Foyers. He had seen the monster on a previous occasion, and was now carrying a camera. It was Sunday 12 November 1933, a sunny morning, and Gray sat down for a moment to look out over the loch. As he did so he saw the monster rising up out of the water, about two hundred yards away.
