Watcha reading?

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 blog along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I've seen these around on different blogs, and finally decided to give it a go. Here's what I came up with:

"We do not want to be encumbered by these just now," he said, pulling out his wand again. "I shall send them to the Burrow to await us there. However, I would like you to bring your Invisibility Cloak...just in case"

Harry extracted his cloak from his trunk with some difficulty, trying not to show Dumbledore the mess within. When he had stuffed it into an inside pocket of his jacket, Dumbledore waved his wand and the trunk, cage, and Hedwig vanished. Dumbledore then waved his wand again, and the front door opened onto cool, misty darkness.

"And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure."
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, J.K. Rowling

Taylor wants to see the movie when/if it ever comes out (it was pushed back from November 2008 to July 2009), so I'm reading the book so I can decide whether or not it's appropriate for him.
