Fifth Sentence - Any Book

Something light I discovered while taking a break from revisions.  Okay, you caught me - I was surfing.  Either way, this was rather fun - it was supposed to be done yesterday - but a day late doesn't make it any less interesting, give it a go.

Storytime With Tonya and Friends is hosting The Friday 56. These are the rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Here's what I have just reaching over and blindly grabbing from the bookshelf:

From P.J. O'Rourke's "All the Trouble in the World"

"Actually it was TRASH METAL RULES, but someone had corrected the spelling, inserting a defining H.  A nearby sign forbade use of skateboards or bicycles in these tempting half-pipes.  I suppose the vandalism was fair recompense."

Thanks Elena for an interesting break from writing.

Any one else willing to give this a go?
