* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Here's mine:
I received this particular paperback book from a friend...
The fifth sentence from The Last Gift of Time Life Beyond Sixty by Carolyn G.Heilbrun.
 I loved the length in the 6th sentence with descriptive words so much so that I had to go with it and share with all of you... here goes! Have you ever come upon a sentence structure like this one before?
"Sylvia Townsend Warner is witness to the delight one may savor in one's mid-sixties." 
"In the evening," she recorded in her diary, "the Amadeus [Quartet] played opus132; and I danced to the last movement, I rose up & danced, among the cats, & their saucers, and only when I was too carried away to stop did I realize that I was behaving very oddly for my age- and that perhaps it was the last time I would dance for joy."
