Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads, cookbooks, tech books, magazines. It doesn't matter. This will work for all print media. If you don't have seven books lined up on a shelf, grab the first seven you see around the house.
2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page).
Write it down.
3. Do the same with the first seven books or articles you see. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them.
4. When you are finished, read over your "story" and title it.
5. Show us your bibliography at the end of this meme. Hmmm...I wonder if we'll be surprised at the reading material we may find. I just did mine. It was rather shocking! I didn't cheat. I promise! Don't you either....or it's you-know-where for you.

***My Result***

From the nearest bookshelf : The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. Captain Bezu Fech carried himself like an angry ox, with his wide shoulders thrown back and his chin tucked hard into his chest. "Yes sir." She always does. "The night is just a part of the day," he would say. Don't worry about the language, what matters is whether or not he feels comfortable with you. Or that he planned to retire, and all this was too much to take care of.
