Twohundredandtwentyonebooks | 16 comments Just a book game i've seen around the website. :) Here are the rules: you turn to the given page and sentence of the book closest to you and post that quote, then you post a page number and sentence number for the next person to use.

first post: turn to page 84, sentence 5.

the next person to post must post the 5th sentence on the 84th page AND chose the page and sentence number for the next person.

* BTW this game is alot more fun if you don't cheat! write the actual sentence not the one you think sounds best *
