The Friday 56


The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Storytime with Tonya. It's really easy (and fun!) to participate.


*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
*Turn to page 56 and find the fifth sentence.
*Post that sentence (plus one or two more if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section below.
*Post a link back to this blog and Storytime with Tonya.
*Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST!

Here's mine from The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins:

"I see it--more unwillingly than I can say. To associate that forlorn, friendless, lost woman, even by an accidental likeness only, with Miss Fairlie, seems like casting a shadow on the future of the bright creature who stands looking at us now."
