But that page was about werewolves. That can only mean one thing.....

I'm sorry, I'm having trouble finding a long enough book right now >.>
Maybe another day?
over a year ago frankthe2nd said…
That's quite alright,lol, I had to find a second book. Not one book from A Series of Unfortunate Events(my closest book) has more than 360-something pages. I just checked, lol.
over a year ago AllyAM said…
My other closest books are just encyclopedias and such >.>
over a year ago frankthe2nd said…
Ooh...most of mine are A Series of Unfortunate Events, what HP books I've bought back, and Star Trek & Doctor Who novels.

This turned into an epic fail on my part as well.
first book-Mademoiselle Boleyn: no page 394
second book- The Devil in the White City: pg. 394 in the citations
third book- Under the Dome: page 394 is a blank page between chapters.

Final: "He now saw the door he sought, an exit light gleaming at the end." well that was alittle anti-climatic.

As Percy hoped to enter the Ministry of Magic, he needed top grades.
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I kinda hoped it was going to be the passage where he actually tells them to turn to page 394.XP
