*Grab a book, any book. 

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.) 

*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) 

*Post it. 

I'm reading  Harlem Shuffle by Colin Whitehead.

From page 56:

Pepper tailed Montague's men all day as they pressed the big uptown fences and the small-timers, and otherwise fringe operators like Carney.  He'd been across the street sipping a bottle of cherry cola when Delroy and Yea Big--those were their names--visited Carney's Furniture. "Walking in like a pair of water buffalo." They hit Carney's joint, they called on the Arab, on Lou Parks, and even walked up to the second-floor offices of Saul Stein, self-proclaimed Gem King of Broadway, from the radio.  Other members of Chink Montague's organization visited the known stickup men and heisters.

I have seen this book mentioned a lot on blogs lately. It does sound good. I haven't yet read anything by Colin Whitehead. I hope you have a great weekend.
