On Facebook the other day, Katie told me about a game where she was instructed to
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
Katie informed me that the fifth sentence on page 56 of the nearest book she grabbed was:
“No, darling, I don’t mind in the least that you’ve quite ruined my prospects. I always wanted to be made a laughingstock in front of the ton.”
So here’s today’s impromptu mini-contest: which book was that from and who said it?
The winner will receive a copy of The Betrayal of the Blood Lily. I’ll pick the winner from among the correct answers and announce it here this evening.
