Book meme.

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph:

Like a relentless boxer, rain beat down on the city, first jabbing with sharp needles, then smacking Seatttle with huge fat drops that hit like haymakers, the barrage punctuated by the ominous rumble of thunder and the eerie flash of lightning. "Everything'll be just fine." Oswalt's smile disappeared, his eyes darting around to see if any of the customers had heard Warrick. "So he stays in the cockpit, and we close the door." May their bones bring forth flowers.

Yeah, I don't know either. The only one y'all have a hope of guessing is the third. Maybe the first and fourth, if you're total geeks. The other two are so obscure even I'm looking at the books going, WTF is this?

1: Dark Angel - Skin Game, by Max Allan Collins
2: Murder Can Kill Your Social Life, by Selma Eichler
3: CSI - Double Dealer, by Max Allan Collins
4: Shadow of the Hegemon, by Orson Scott Card
5: Lady in Gil, by Rebecca Bradley

Amusingly enough, I seem to be one of the few that does not include a HP book. Probably because I wouldn't even know where to begin to look for my copies.
