Don't usually get tagged with memes, but Adrian, The Atheist Blogger, tagged everyone who read his blog. So here it is.
  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
The closest book was an alphabet book that my daughter read six times today, because it has fuzzy bits and pop-ups. It doesn't have 56 pages. The next closest book was the one I'm reading: The Twilight Watch, by Sergei Lukyanenko. It's obviously translated from Russian, which is not usually not a problem, though some of the idiom gets a little clunky occasionally. It's the third in a series that began with The Night Watch, which was a good flick, and became a pretty good movie. You can actually watch it here.
Unless perhaps someone saw the letter posted three days ago. There's not much chance they'd remember, of course...

What a fool I was! I even slapped myself on the forehead. Sure, it's no disgrace for an Other to forget about modern technology, Others aren't very fond of complicated technical gizmos. But I was a computer hardware specialist.

All of the grounds of Assol were monitored by video cameras.
Not very revealing or indicative of the series as a whole.

As for tagging, I'm not gonna follow through. Feel free to call yourself tagged if you read this, have a blog, and get the urge.
