Like a virus that's going around--here's the literary meme. The rules:
1. grab the book closest to you
2. open it to page 161
3. find the fifth full sentence
4. post the text of the sentence to your blog
5. don't search around for the coolest book you have, use the one that is really next to you.
The nearest book long enough to have 161 pages is Cyrus MacMillan's Canadian Wonder Tales. The fifth sentence on page 161 is:
"He was very tired of his work for he was kept at it day and night always spinning and weaving his webs." (From a story called "The Fall of the Spider Man"--not related to the superhero.)
