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...

"Eats, Shoots and Leaves"?

Whatever it is, it sounds pretty terrible. Three "coulds" in one sentence, two of them practically spooning, good grief.

It certainly takes some getting used to. Gods but the man can murder a sentence.

Typically, every book I currently have within reach is either a dictionary, a graphic novel, or only has pictures on page 121. I give up - my bookshelves are just not interesting enough!
