The Friday 56
If it's Friday then it's not only time for the Hop, but it is also time for the Friday 56 (a bookish meme brought to me by A Simply Love of Reading).
Here are the Rules:
*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find the fifth sentence.
*Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have a blog) in the the comment section of this blog.
*Post a link on your post back to this blog.
*Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Here's mine from Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser:
The Guises were accused of being foreigners by their enemies--Lorrainers rather than true Frenchmen. The Guises riposted by claiming that the royal blood of Charlemagne flowed in their veins, which they said, entitled them to the highest place at the French court.
