Fun With Books

I read this yesterday on Now where'd I put my drink?.

Grab the book closest to you. Open it to page 123 and type the 5th sentence on the page here in my comments.

Here is mine:

"I want my breakfast."

  13. 'Moreover, during this time under the bridal veil, she connects with the souls of her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren, forward to the time when messianic consciousness will change our perspective of reality.'

    'God Is A Verb - Kabbalah and the Practice of Mystical Judaism'

    It's the only book at work that's not a magazine.

    And I must note, I bought this book back in '98 - way before Madonna and celebs even knew what Kabbalah was about.
