I was tagged by one of my favorite bloggers, the tiny Antoinette over at Clevergirl. This award is called the Bookworm award, and here are the rules:
* Pass it on to 5 friends
* Open the book closest to you - not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment - to page 56
* Write out the 5th sentence, as well as the 2-5 sentences following
The closest book to me right now is the textbook I have to use to prepare lesson plans for Monday. It is called The World, A History by Felipe Fernandez-Armesto and is my favorite world history textbook (I am SUCH a nerd!)
P.56 is part of the pages between chapters that have source readings and this particular one is about Chauvet Cave in France. The 5th sentence reads:
"Sensing a draft from within a rock fall, they dug through earth and stones to create a gap wide enough for the thinnest of them to crawl through. When she realized there was a corridor ahead, she called the others. They shouted into the darkness to get an echo, which would give them a sense of the cave's dimensions. The noise seemed lost in vast emptiness. When they returned with full equipment, they found that the corridor led to the biggest cavern ever discovered in this part of France. Yet more astounding was their discovery in an adjoining chamber: a portrait in red ochre of a bear, rearing over 3 feet high - preserved for who knew how many thousands of years?"
Hm....five more people. I don't think I even have 5 regular readers, and Antoinette tagged three of them, =) but here goes. If you want to.....
