Pick Up a Book And...

Here is a new simple challenge we just came up with: Pick Up a Book And... 
Since we just want everyone to pick up a book and tell us a little something.
Pick up the book you are reading. And tell us...

The Little Sister came 
up with this one!

Pick up your book.

Turn to page 64.

Tell us the first full sentence on the page!

(We're wondering if the comments will tell a new story!)
