Having a brief quasi-theological discussion with [livejournal.com profile] neutraltwin last night has made me want to crack open my philosophy books again. I never thought I'd actually want to read Ethics again, but now I'm like... okay. How much brain power do I have today? Am I up for digesting a little bit of Aristotle? (Which I wasn't. |D I compromised and read Chesterton instead. Orthodoxy's preface will forever make me laugh.) So now I'm just in such a reflective and pensive mood. I love it.

... now would probably be a good time to get some writing done.

☇ Take four books off your bookshelf.
☇ Write the first sentence
☇ Write the last sentence on page fifty
☇ Write the second sentence on page one hundred
☇ Write the next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
☇ Write the final sentence of the book
☇ Let your friends guess what book it is.

to add a twist... If anyone can guess all four before I post the answers, I will buy them two-months paid time. No joke. 'Course... I have a somewhat strange taste in books and while two are pretty well-known, two of 'em are a tad more obscure. Though the last one has a major hint as to the series in one of the lines. |D

I'm seriously doubting anyone could guess all four, so. |D

BOOK ONE: Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchet [ guessed by [livejournal.com profile] spiffynamehere ]
    ☇ Polly cut off her hair in front of the mirror, feeling slightly guilty about not feeling very guilty about doing so.
    ☇ He was praying.
    ☇ "Lied to 'em for years."
    ☇ "Can't have the poor man chokin' to death, Perks!"
    ☇ And the new day was a great big fish.

BOOK TWO: 'Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis [ guessed by [livejournal.com profile] spiffynamehere ]
    ☇ I am old now and have not much to fear from the anger of gods.
    ☇ "Why should the Accursed not be both the best and the worst?"
    ☇ "We must go on; further on this line."
    ☇ "I must, the, rest tonight."
    ☇ The Priest who comes after me has it in charge to give up the book to any stranger who will take an oath to bring it into Greece.

BOOK THREE: Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein [ partially guessed by [livejournal.com profile] toastofrassilon ]
    ☇ If you are a dreamer, come in.
    ☇ They never buy the bad ones!
    ☇ Up to my elbows-- up to my face
    ☇ To kill and die is such a bore
    ☇ What do I search for now?

BOOK FOUR: The Paradise War by Stephen Lawhead [ not guessed XD ]
    ☇ It all began with the aurochs.
    ☇ But, on the off chance that he'd stumbled and hit his head on a rock, I crawled around the interior of the cairn to make sure he wasn't lying unconscious in the dirt.
    ☇ The interior of the building was suited to its gigantic occupant.
    ☇ "We could be doing irreparable damage."
    ☇ For I had heard the Song of Albion and my life was no longer my own.
