Page 56, if you please

I have been tagged for a literary meme of sorts. The meme was this:


* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions on your blog (or facebook wall).
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Ok, I did and here it is, oh, and I will post it on Facebook for those who are in my cadre:

"Really, Thackeray, you simply must learn to accept what you cannot change."

Now find your 5th sentence on page 56 of a book of yours and post it to the comments so others may share in your discovery!

"Devine," Cass corrected him.

5th sentence, page 56, in Christopher Buckley's Boomsday, which was the closest book to my keyboard when I read this. Fun exercise, CW!
