Swiped from the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] pfeifferpack who pinched it from [livejournal.com profile] woman_of who is just as wonderful:

Find the nearest book.
Open to page 56.
Find the fifth sentence and post it.

"In 1507, Henry VII negotiated with the Emperor Maximilian a betrothal between the Princess Mary Tudor and Maximilian's grandson, Charles of Castile, an alliance that would be highly advantageous to England with her trade links through the woolcloth trade with the Low Countries, of which Charles - as Archduke of Austria - was heir; it would also counterbalance a recent political alliance between Ferdinand and Louis XII of France."

- either I'm boring and have nothing better to read than books about Tudor life (you don't wanna know how many books I actually have), or I was just too lazy to pick up the book next to it (The Salem Witch Trials) which doesn't seem much better. And my God... that was a freakin' long sentence!
