The answers to last week’s questions were fun to read, so I’m going to do the same thing this week, with a little spin on it. I want you to dig out a book that’s in a hard-to-get-to spot, then answer the same questions about it. As an example, I’ll get a book out of our library upstairs. Now, you’d think this would be easy, but this time it isn’t. There’s a bookcase in the corner behind the wingback chair. I have to move the chair to get to the lower shelves. To make it even more inconvenient, I’ll reach down behind the floor lamp that’s there and get something off the bottom shelf.
Go get a book that is in the most inconvenient place in your home.
- What corner of your house did you dig this book out of?
- What are the book’s title and author?
- Turn to page 127. Locate the third paragraph, first sentence. Type that sentence here:
- Does the sentence make sense out of context?
- Seeing it sitting here by itself, out of the book, is it funny? Sad? Strange? Does it make you want to explore its source?
- Are you currently reading this book? Why?
