try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

Meme from peacey:

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book

Joseph P. Kennedy, one of this nation's most politically ambitious fathers, could not have planned it better. His statement shows the attitude many physicians have concerning the alleged superiority of modern medical techniques: "We inject a little Novocaine, make a little cut, lift the baby out gently with forceps, then repair and restore the pelvic floor even better than God made it." I agreed with him, though I hadn't heard a word about it. The stairwell was grey and unlit except by light filtering round corners and through cracks. So thanks to all at once and to each one, whom we invite to see us crowned at Scone.

Hee! I don't think it'll make the bestseller list. Besides, it lies. I don't agree at all with that nonsense about forceps and repairing stuff better than God. ;)

Books used (yanked randomly from my bookshelf):

1. Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy by Peter S. Canellos.
2. Unassisted Childbirth by Laura Kaplan Shanley.
