Stephen King, Werewolves, and a Literary Meem

Grab the book closest to you.  Turn to page 31.  Count down to the eighth sentence.  Write down the next 5 lines (keep writing into the  next line, if needed, until you finish the last sentence). 

“Later, no one will be able to say where the sound came from; it was everywhere and nowhere as the full moon painted the darkened houses of the village, everywhere and nowhere as the March wind began to rise and moan like a dead Berserker winding his horn, it drifted on the wind, lonely and savage.”

That was from Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf.  This is a great book full of short stories about werewolves; I highly recommend it.

Pretty Good on Paper

Found a great blog called Pretty Good on Paper.  There’s a plethora of random yet interesting information here including how to keep your password safe and keep a list of passwords that nobody else will be able to decipher, how to fold a piece of paper into the shape of a terrier, and a post on re-reading Stephen King in which he writes:

“I have one of those unique minds that can forget all but a few basic plot elements from a novel I read only a couple of years back. This special skill allows me to enjoy a book just as much upon second, third, or fourth readings. It can save money during those times when you are mainly reading for entertainment or escape.”

You can also see an extensive list of book reviews he has done or, if you’re looking for free stuff to read on the net, you can read some fiction written by this blogger.
