TAG.... I've tagged 5 of you out there!!!

I was reading April's blog over at Straight From the Heart and loved this so decided to do one of my own.
OK, here are the rules:Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.
This excerpt comes from the book "Fireproof" by Eric Wilson. It's an awesome book and just came out in the theaters as a GREAT movie!!! I recommend everyone reading and/or watching Fireproof. It is meaningful and touched my heart!
"That sounded like surrender, like giving up. But who was Caleb fooling? Marriage wasn't a game, some contest in which all the spoils went to the victor. This was supposed to be a joint venture, right? A partnership. And his partner wanted nothing to do with him."
Alright, so now I'm going to tag:
It's your turn!! HAVE FUN!!

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog.

This looks like fun and even though you didn't tag me, I thought I'd do it too, just to see what I turned up.

This is from "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane", my daughter's book which just happened to be lying right next to the computer.

"And then, suddenly, the great,wide net of a fisherman reached out and grabbed the rabbit. The net lifted him higher and higher until there was an almost unbearable explosion of light and Edward was back in the world, lying on the deck of a ship, surrounded by fish."
