Haven't gone over to get the pictures off Kevin and Beth yet, so I'll indulge in Ms. Bond's parlor games today.

Grab the nearest book at hand. Go to page 42. Select your favorite sentence. Post it and the name of the book in your journal (add these instructions to your journal as well).

From Tillie Olsen's "Yonnondio: From the Thirties"

"And Beauty? Until the mammoth stone beauty of the city has carved itself into their blood, the children can lie on their bellies near the edge of the cliff and watch the trains and freights, the glittering railroad tracks, the broken bottles dumped below, the rubbish moving on the littered belly of the river."
