Here’s a nice, uncomplicated Booky Meme I discovered at Verbatim (my Blogmamma, though she has never acknowledged herself as such):

Grab the nearest book and answer the following questions:

Title and Author:

100 Suns by Michael Light

Is the book dedicated to anyone? If so, whom?

There is no dedication.

What is the first sentence?

“The images in this book show U.S. atomic detonations from the era of above-ground nuclear testing, which lasted from July 16, 1945 to November 4, 1962.”

Turn to page 47. Please share the first sentence of the first full paragraph.

[Note: Since this book is a collection of photographs with annotations in the back, I show here the first sentence of the annotation for the 47th photograph.]

“Seen in a long-exposure photograph, a portion of Wilson’s detonation cloud, five miles distant, drifts in the early morning wind.”

Join in if you want!
