The Fifth Sentence

So here's a meme for all you meme-lovers.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

So here I go. The only books around are stacked into a giant bookcase in our living room. So I closed my eyes and grabbed the first one my little fingers touched.

Title: The American Short Story, edited by Thomas K. Parkes.

The fifth sentence on page 123 is from a short story by Herman Melville entitled, "Benito Cereno."

"But the debility, constitutional or induced, by hardships bodily andf mentally, of the Spanish captain was too obvious to be overlooked."
