Yet another post for pure amusement. Pick up whatever book your currently reading, turn to page 121 and look at the nineth line. What does it say. the challenge is try to guess what other people are reading. Got the idea off another forum.

Anyway the first random book i came acroos said:
introduce examples in books on punctuation.What...

Another:
seems hardly credible to me that the request for landing facilities would.....

Last one:
his pocket.
good luck guessing that one.

These are just random books but ones you are reading are better.

This one might be obvious... but anyway:

"It was a spelling mistake."

I will try a harder one...
"Her particular concern is the liberation of Turkish women."

It was a book I recieved for my birthday from one of my aunts. <====(This is a clue)

"Standing in the kitchen doorway. Looking into the long -"

Could be anything!

Got a couple on the go at the moment:

"through by hand. The worker would position himself so that he could"

and

"After all, she wasn't even mentioned in the king's will. Nobody"

Can't guess anyone else's yet! X-D

No.. I think it could be near impossible this game, but instead we should change it into a gallery of the nineth line of page 121 of the random book we have within our reach.

okay- try these :

book one :

'Auger tried to make some sense of the slowly moving contours, but she'

book two :

'it belonged to me so it was OK to open'

book three :

'English, with a heavy quebecois accent.'

Have fun guessing. Now I'm off to pack all of my lovely books away. I'm moving in three days and I haven't started packing yet!!

Mere coincidence, I happen to have read the book
But as to the rest, no clue whatsoever.

I have got a tricky one for you - page 121, ninth line from the book I happen to have been reading this weekend:

"habit."

And from the one waiting for me tonight for some last breaths of letters, words and stories before I go to sleep:

"BOOK I. (Folio), CHAPTER VI. (Sulphur Bottom). - Another retiring gen-"

This is , like, the easiest one in the world.

P. 121, ln 9:

"They went to Gutman's door and Spade knocked."

Yey! Now, the one next to it on the shelf, you wouldn't be able to get it nearly as quickly. Or, indeed, ever.

P. 121, ln 9:

"Knowing this power to be lodged in his heart, he felt a surge of vital-..."{ity, a noble strength he found quietly exhilirating."}

I think we should probably change the rules to posting the 9th sentence as opposed to 9th line - otherwise we'll end up with sentence fragments most of the time.
