Book meme

I am a bit of a bookworm, so I could not resist this meme:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

The book is actually a Lithuanian translation, but I'll translate the sentence into English for you:

After entering the palace, he seduced the king's wife, killed the king with her help and seized his throne.

Can you guess which book the sentence is from?

No, but you are not that far off.

Plato's _Republic_? It would be the guy with the invisibility ring... Cheers, M.

Exactly!

I have to admit I would not have posted it if it weren't this book lying right next to my laptop.
