...fancied doing a semi-serious experiment, but also thought I'd give something away to whoever gets closest...

i have a book...

Secrets of Mental Magic - How to use your full power of mind, by Vernon Howard. hardback 6th printing 1968

i took that book, shut my eyes, and inserted a finger inside its trembling leaves...i settled upon a single word, and also noted the page number. The book is 223 pages in total.

I have made note of the word, and the page number...give me your best guess of both...

the nearest gets a prize...or rather, a choice from a selection of "stuff"...one guess per person (of both word and page number)...

off you go!

no PMs, cut off point is this wednesday (maybe earlier if no one takes part)...answers next Friday.

What, if someone gets the right page with wrong word ... Or, right word with wrong page ?
Who, is the closest then ?

I've written down the answers and hermetically sealed them in a mason jar. The jar will be opened and my answers revealed here publicly next Saturday.

It is better to guessed and loss, than never to guessed at all.
