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?

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

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