Booking Through Thursday on Sunday

Why??? Because I didn't work on Thursday and have barely touched my computer since then. I've been busy being outside and watching movies and *not* reading (so much for my three books this weekend, I'll be lucky to finish one...).

So here we go...

Booking Through Thursday

Reach out a hand, and grab the book that is closest to you. Turn to page 231, or pick a page at random if the book isn’t that long. Locate the first sentence of the last paragraph on that page.

The book: Curse of the Narrows: The Halifax Explosion 1917 by Laura M. MacDonald

Type the sentence here: "Displaced children proved to be a particular challenge for social workers because they could neither register themselves nor provide much more than their names and, if lucky, former addresses."

Does the sentence make sense out of context? As long as you know the title of the book, sure.

Does reading the sentence make you want to read the rest of the book? Why or why not? Hard to answer since I *am* reading the book and the last time I didn't have enough time to finish it I checked it out again. If I hadn't heard of it I think I'd still want to read it to find out what happened with the children (hey, I may not want kids but it doesn't mean I want them to be homeless).
