Book Meme

Time for a little bit of nonsense.

I was following the news that Pownce is dead and started reading some of Leah Culver’s blog entries, which I usually try to check in every so often but don’t have in my feed for some reason. Loh and behold I found that she’s been playing with CouchDB too!

It’s always rewarding to know that someone who’s made such a professional impact is exploring things the same as I am (although I’m sure her learning curve is faster then mine ;> ).

In one of her posts I stumbled across the “book meme“. I don’t really listen to music like I should or enjoy a lot of the “fill in this questionnaire” memes that go around, but books… now that I can get into!

So here’s mine;

“If the yeast is active, it will have at least doubled its volume with a frothy head.” – Caveman Chemistry by Kevin M Dunn.

Book meme:

– Grab the nearest book.
– Open it to page 56.
– Find the fifth sentence.
– Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
– Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I'm trying to build something interactive where I can learn from others and hopefully share useful knowledge too.

    Thanks Dan, that’s kind of an interesting quote and w/o the background on the book I pictured something more like a Dan Brown novel!

  2. Well just about all my books (and my wife’s) are equidistant from where I’m sitting right now, so I’ll close my eyes and pick one at random.

    “One thing was obvious amid the confused web of legends I had reviewed, legends which supplemented one another but also at times conflicted.”

    from Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock, who has some interesting, but frankly pretty insane theories about history that have little support in the academic world. One of my more embarrassing purchases – although my conspiracy-minded little brother loved it when he read it.
