I'll play, too

I saw this on habsgirl's blog.
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"The acceleration that occurs in circular motion is known as centripetal acceleration (sen TRIP uht uhl ak SEL uhr AY shuhn)." from Holt Science and Technlogy: Physical Science (c) 2005. What's so cool about that sentence? I wrote it. No kidding. I really did. Ok, I didn't write the phonetic respelling--a copyeditor did that for me. The only books in this office are textbooks, textbooks, and even more textbooks.

But we're playing with you even more! Now you have to do the music thingie that habs passed on to me and is now yours. ;)

Nearest books are textbooks and you wrote one? Geek. :D

No, I didn't write the textbook. I edited big chunks of it. But editing middle school science textbooks often means "heavy-revising." AKA: rewriting. Most PhDs can't write at a middle-school level.
