So here we are, bored by all our page 123's...
http://cubits.org/thereadingroom/thread/view/54523/

and moving on to
PAGE 283 'til further notice...

The book to hand says...
"If I grabbed you by your wrist"--and he did--"would you cut your arm off?"

Thumbs up

For those who might be new to this, grab a book randomly, turn to page 283 & post the first complete sentence. In quotes, please, so we don't get more confused than we already are.

Uh oh, the next closest book stops at page 250. Hmmm, maybe page 283 isn't the best choice? Blinking

Better hurry...

That's too funky weird that there are 'arms' on 2 different page 283s Blinking

Sometimes Jane Austen hurts your brain. How's this for a loooong sentence;
'Never, even in the company of his dear friends at Netherfield, or his dignified relations at Rosings, had she seen his so desirous to please, so free from self-consequence, or unbending reserve as now, when no importance could result from the success of his endevours, and when even the attentions of those to who his attentions were addressed, would draw down the ridicule and censure of the ladies both of Netherfield of Netherfield and Rosings."

WHEW!
