We had so much fun w/just grabbing the nearest book & posting the first complete sentence on page 52 for National Book Week, we thought we'd keep going, picking a different page number every week or so.

I'll pick the first new page, after that we'll 'negotiate', OK?

So... PAGE 123 is the one!

"The Olympic games were held in honor of Pelops, the legendary lover of Poseidon, who had also been a great athlete."

Really?! I've never even HEARD of Pelops... now I have to go find out who that is!...
Nice to start this off w/a love interest, though. Hilarious!

Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

It's all about choices.
