Book meme!

Seen it posted by several people, but just now is the first time i read it while i was actually near a book :) The only question i have is, if the page starts halfway through a sentence does that count as the first sentence or the zeroth sentence?

Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

The closest book: "Whatever their reasons, most relish an opportunity to make the enemy run scared, if only for an evening or two."

The book i'm currently reading: "'Major,' he said, once he was confident he had control of his voice, 'I've just had a nasty thought.'"

Okay, that one is a little weird too, because the sentence ends in the middle of a quote.
