I've nicked this idea from another forum, but it was interesting/amusing to see what folk read.

Turn to page 46 of the book nearest to you(no cheating), and post the first line. Therein lies your 2012 hormonal future.
I was pretty p****d off to have a copy of 'Clarkson and Osbourne Cutting Tool Guide.

'NPT/NPTF American National Taper Pipe'. :)

"Install to withstand gravity, normal and thermally induced movement, as well as to resist deterioration under conditions of heavy use."


From the only book at my desk, a construction specification manual for a current project.

You said no cheating so here it is.

"Scar formation, secondary to ulcerative proctitis, also contributes to rectal stricture."

Hope this is not a forecast of things to come in my sex life.

As a veterinary pathologist the nearest book to me on my desk is Special Veterinary Pathology. Any page I go to will predict bad things for my sex life.

I think I may be in trouble this year.

"While the majority of places people live are fair- to middling-sized, a handful, such as New York, have populations that are crazy large, so large they are hard to fit. . "

Sounds dirtier than it is (especially if you remove "places" and "live") - it's a discussion of distribution models of such things as town sizes and incomes. But, apparently, size does matter.

Perhaps it's a geographical recommendation for outdoor 'exertions' :-)

The first book I opened had a blank page 46! Not a good sign.

So I opened the next one and it said "Intent: Reduce heat islands (thermal gradient differences between developed and undeveloped areas) to minimize impact on micrpclimate and human and wildlife habitat". Go figure.

Pun intended?

------------------
"Most people, whether the realize it or not, go into the backcountry because they want to leave behind for a spell, the human-dominated world..."

Actually the first two lines, because the first made no sense.

Sorry, but i'm not believing that folk always have a 'classic' near to hand.

The closest book to me is "Die deutsche Grammatik klar gemacht" 2nd Edition.

My fiancee' is from Germany. Trying to not be the total Ugly American, I wanted to at least have some grasp of the German language for our recent two week trip this past holiday season (lots of homemade cooking from scratch; my waistline shows it. The good German beer did not help either. :D).

And what does page 46 of this book show?

" schlagen (to beat) sclägt schlug geschlagen "


I can not add further commentary to that one.....

First full sentence from a petroleum reference dictionary.
