Nearest Book Meme

I got this from duchessletitia.

Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST

If I count headwords as sentences (because they are followed by a period/full stop):

"Robert of Bernis was a goldsmith in 1465 (Laing, 154), John Barnis witnessed an instrument of sasine in 1496 (Bamff, p. 37), and Alexander Barnis was admitted burgess of Aberdeen in 1524 (NSCM., I, p. 48)."

Otherwise:

"Alexander Bairins was admitted burgess of Aberdeen, 1575 (RSCA., I, p. 220), Gilbert Bairnis was 'sacristar' there, 1595 (CRA., p. 117), and Matthew Bairnis was admitted burgess of the burgh, 1616 (NSCM., I, p. 117)."

I'm going to let y'all guess what book that was!

[I've now fixed the typos in my original post]

"Storefront displays say so much about the local culture."

(How's that for meaningless out of context?)
