Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.
Okay. The book nearest me is Egypt after the Pharaohs by Alan K. Bowman. It is a book I use for my MA thesis, but it is not too intellectual!
The fifth sentence reads (and I only write out the fifth sentence because it is so long):
The administration was staffed by a host of officials and bureaucrats, recording and regulating the activities and obligations of the king's subjects, down to the last detail of the requisitioned labour and surveillance of irrigation works, cultivation and transport which was drafted in order to ensure maximum efficiency of production and profit.
