Lately, there’s been something on Facebook about “International Book Week”. Evidently, it comes up once every few months. The actual rule says something about grabbing the nearest book and posting a random sentence from a very specific part of the book. Then, I guess people are supposed to guess what book it is (which, from the looks of Facebook, no one ever does).
I still haven’t gotten around to playing/participating. Mostly, because every time I play, there’s no “nearest book”. My computer is next to a bookshelf, and choosing a book on my own seems like it’s cheating the spontaneous nature of the game. Then again, rolling dice or something to randomize how I grab a book just seems silly.
