This is a royal twist on an old meme. This is how it works: You must follow the directions to the letter.
1. Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads, cookbooks, tech books, magazines. It doesn't matter. This will work for all print media. If you don't have seven books lined up on a shelf, grab the first seven you see around the house.
2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page).
Write it down.
3. Do the same with the first seven books or articles you see. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them.
4. When you are finished, read over your "story" and title it.
5. Show us your bibliography at the end of this meme.
Self titled: After It's Said and Done
This time a folded piece of newsprint fell out, yellowing and brittle to the touch. My mother puts a hand on my shoulder. "What do you know about that kind of stuff?" He was always ready to talk if anyone wanted him to, but no one ever responded. But that would be a lot of trouble. "See what happens when people do not keep their promises!"
Where is my pain? he thought.

That was fun. Unfortunately touching books in the daylight hours is not a good thing for me. Now all I want to do is curl up with a mug of something warm, a blanket and these fantastic books.
This was no easy task for me, teasing myself almost. Only allowed to open the books to page 21 and skim to the 21st sentence. What should have taken me 20 minutes took me a few hours. What is it with these things? I just can't put them down and when I do...I'm on to the next.
