The Friday 56: The Grand Design



Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!



To show what a complete nerd I am, today's selection is The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking. This is my nighttime reading right now so it's next to my bed. I usually have two books going at once, my fiction that I carry everywhere with me and the non-fiction by my bed. I am really bad about finishing non-fiction. There are so many that look interesting but I get bored about halfway through and never finish. All non-fiction. Usually biographies are worse. I couldn't even finish the biography of Aleister Crowley, and you know his life isn't boring, so I know it's me. However, I love this book. I searched this book out at the bookstore as soon as it came out because I was so excited. Maybe I should have stuck with the science major in college...no, nevermind. But I do love this book.

There's just pictures on page 56. This book has WONDERFUL illustrations, except this page. Of course, it's a good representation of what he's talking about, but they're boring pictures. :) I'll put the label here since it's the only words on the page.

Interference Like people, when waves meet they can tend to either enhance or diminish each other.
