The Friday 56, finally

I did the Friday 56 once before and I had intended to keep doing it. Of course I would never remember until it wasn't Friday anymore and it seemed silly to do it then. I figured I could always do it next week. Well, it took me a couple of months but I finally remembered while it was still Friday. So here goes.

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My sentence:

Books were carried off and concealed in the ground, whole collections deliberately buried by their owners to hide them from the pirates.

From The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers

What did the pirates want with books? hmmmmmmmmm

They're treasure, of course. Or am I the only one who thinks of books as treasure? Perhaps I have revealed too much.
