In my last post, I promised to redo the book meme, this time going with the book unquestionably closest to me. As it turned out, there was a book right behind me last night I didn't even notice. The Lord of the Rings: the Complete Best-Selling Classic is the rightful book to submit for this little amusement.
Open the book to page 123 and find the fifth sentence.
“Its walls were of clean stone, but they were mostly covered with green hanging mats and yellow curtains.”
Post the text of the next three sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
“The floor was flagged, and strewn with fresh green rushes. There were four deep mattresses, each piled with white blankets, laid on the floor along one side. Against the opposite wall was a long bench laden with wide earthenware basins, and beside it stood brown ewers filled with water, some cold, some steaming hot.”
(This is my first reading through the Lord of the Rings, by the way.)
