Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches

Simply find a book, turn to page 159, and the first paragraph will tell you what kind of person you are. It can be any type of book you want it to be. Don't forget to put down the name of the book. Remember this is all in good fun.


My Turn:

"How are you planning to send a message in a way that doesn't lead directly back to you?" Amon said. "Here I'm worrying about you running into Micah and you're planning to stand up and wave at Lord Bayar and say 'Here I am!'"
"I'm not writing to Lord Bayar," Raisa growled.



-The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima

I really do not know.


Enjoy!!!

You mean to tell me you have no books in your room or anywhere else in your house?

"They had been talking to one another for a couple of minutes at the most. There was only one meaning that the episode could possibly have. It had been contrived as a way of letting Winston know O'Brien's address. This was neccessary, because except by direct inquiry it was never possible to discover where anyone lived. There were no directories of any kind. "If you ever want to see me, this is where I can be found," was what O'Brien had been saying to him. Perhaps there would be a message concealed somewhere in the dictionary. But at any rate, one thing was certain. The conspiracy he had dreamed of did exist, and he had reached the outer edges of it." (George Orwell, 1984, 159)

Well, that seems relatively fitting, actually

vo had seen women naked, of course and many times at that. like his fellow perikalese mercenaries he had visited the brothels outside the palace's lily gate many times, although in his case it had been mostly because not to do so would have attracted attention, and vo hated attention even more than he disliked pain. he had used some of the women as they chose to be used, but after the first time, when the oddness of the experience had some value in itself, it meant little to him. he understood that copulation was a great motivator of mankind and perhaps even womankind as well, but to him it seemed only another ape trick, different from eating and defecating only because it could not be practiced solitarily , but required company.
vo paused, his attention returned to the ships moving placidly in the gentle tides of the bay, tied up alongside the quay like so many great cows in a barn. that one, there with the lean bow like a snout of a hunting animal; that must be the one he sought. the name painted in sweeping xixian characters was unfamiliar .but anyone could change a name . it was less easy to hide the shape of a ship as swift as jeddins.
the page started with a unfinished paragraph so I started with page 158 lol

There was no working with him. The man shamed Agon and should have shamed himself. Yet Agon was sworn to him, and he'd decided long ago that an oath measured the man who gave it. It was like his marriage; he wouldn't take back his vows simply because his wife couldn't give him children.


~The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks

I should probably actually get around to reading it one of these days. At least it sounds like I'm one to keep my promises.

"And the technical skill these people bring to the task is extremely high. They've been skinning animals for thousands of years, after all. They can take a man's skin off the way you'd peel a peach. Beautifully, without a single scratch. Am I speaking too quickly for you, by any chance?" Yamamoto said nothing.

"But opulent cities, great pageantries, vast crowds,
Could never hold for us the mystical allure
Of those scenes which by chance are conjured in the clouds.
And desire always left us anxious and unsure!"

-Death: Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire

Seems pretty accurate.

Deadhouse Gates - Steven Erikson

Even the Gral gelding hesitated at the square's edge. The bodies covering the cobbles numbered several hundred. Old men and old women, and children, for the most part. They had all been savagely cut to pieces or, in some cases, burned alive. The stench of sun-warmed blood, bile and seared flesh hung thick in the square.


What kind of person would that make me

What an unfathomable woman.
Carelessly requesting something of her could have dire consequences.

Kizumonogatari. I don't want to know. :/

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

"Vin watched the mist-cloaked city through her window, the carriage lantern extinguished at her request. Burning tin, she was able to study the neatly organized and well groomed streets. This was a section of Fellise she had rarely seen; despite the town's opulence; it's slums were remarkably similar to other cities."

Hm, so I guess this means I'm a girl who studies cities?
