Very simple game, very simple rules:

1: Find a book
2.1: Go to page 20 and type up the first whole sentance
2.2: You can list the title of the book if you wish
3: That all folks


(if there is swearing in it please *** it out I don't want to use the word filter it too much effort for me, yes I am lazy)

Start:
I rather think I'll explode if I don't do something, and you say make a book for you.

Book: The Vampire Armand

The past several months had afforded ample opportunities to study humans in grief, but for all his observations he was no closer to understanding the process than he had been before Chewbacca's death on that dreadful world.

Star Wars - The New Jedi Order (had to use my son's book cause I've only got gardening and DIY books).

Since I am reading my books in Dutch, I have to post a sentence in Dutch.
In the meantime you can learn a new language. :P

"Maar het was alsof ze had geprobeerd een radiostation te vinden in doodse stilte."

translated it means: But it was if she had tried to find a radio station in deadly silence.

It is from the book "De Strandweg" (The Beach Road by Sarah Diamond)

:) Shelli, that is already 1 word you've learned.
There are other words which are similar in writing and meaning, only the pronounciation is different. A few examples:

'School - apartheid (is a Dutch word wich is used in every language) - bus - TV - computer'

There are probably more but these are the ones that came up to mind immediately.

Another book I started to read.
Again it is in Dutch but I will try to translate afterwards. Here we go:

"Ik moest 500 pond meer betalen dan ze in de advertentie hadden gevraagd."

Translation: I had to pay £ 500 more than they had asked in the advertention.

It comes from the book The Collector written by John Fowles.

This naturally aroused a growing respect among their colleges, but it was respect mixed with doubt and wonder, for they fitted no recognizable (recognisable, stoopid American book) pattern
