This month’s book meme was found over at It’s a Pug’s Life and other places. I think you will see what a nerd I really am.
Here’s what you do:
• Grab the nearest book.
• Open to page 161.
• Find the fifth full sentence.
• Post the sentence.

From the letter sent to Gen. U.S. Grant by Brig. Gen. S.B. Buckner, C.S.A. accepting Grant’s surrender demands from the book “Personal Memoirs” by Ulysses S. Grant.
