National Book Week

Rules: pick the closest book to you and post the 5th sentence on the 52nd page. Go!

From The Lower River by Paul Theroux:

“They squawked as he left, and he realized that all he had given them was the Malawi equivalent of a dollar apiece.”

You can read The New York Times‘ review of Theroux’s novel here.
