message 1: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) Here's a fun game where we post sentences from the books we're currently reading. What you do is post a page number and a sentence number and the next person finds that location in the book he or she is reading and posts it. Then he or she posts a new page and sentence number (or location, like last sentence in chapter 4).

So, here is the starting numbers:
