OK.

take the closest book to you. find the very last word printed in it. go to an image site, and search it. post the very first picture that comes up. if you don't get any results when you search, post the fifth to last word instead.

and post what the book was, and what the word was. magazines are ok too. i'll start.


Book: the curious incident of the dog in the night-time

AHAHAHA. I'm a doof. That was the "about the writer" part.

The last sentence is actually: "Hello, David," she said."
